Welcome to Steves Computer Services Aldershot
SCSA has been established here in Aldershot, Hampshire for over 25 years now, providing computer services and sales to individuals and local businesses alike.
I repair and/or upgrade most Laptops & PCs here at my base, though depending on the nature, some may be able to be done on site.
A FREE Collection / Delivery service is available to those of you within 5 miles of my base in Aldershot, however, an extra small charge for those of you outside the 5 mile range and within 10 will be added.
Services also include:-
- Coronavirus - Covid-19 and SCSA - Updated November 2020
- TV License - dont fall for this email - looks like they want your bank details!
- 17/02/2020 - Automated AMAZON caller - I dont think so!
- Google ends its free Wi-Fi program Station
- Microsoft ended support for Windows 7 on 14 January 2020 - what does this mean?
- Microsoft announces changes to cloud contract terms following EU privacy probe
While we are in this unprecedented situation and we are all at risk of being infected by Covid-19, I feel it best that I only offer telephone and remote support for the time being.
You can initially contact me on 07 794 626 930. A landline number will be given for telephone support as they are usually cheaper than a mobile phone.
Payments for these services and/or advice will be able to be made by Credit/Debit cards at special reduced rates of £15 per hour for the next two months or so.
Hoping we can all keep safe and the end of this virus is in site soon.
Direct Debit Alert
We're sorry to let you know that your TV License could not be automatically renewed. As we couldn't take the latest payment from your bank account, this amount will also need to be paid when you set up your new Direct Debit. Remember, if you don't keep up with your payments, we may be forced to cancel your license or pass your details to a debt collection agency. To change your payment method, have a look at all your options. So, all you need to do is make sure there's enough money in your account. Or , if you prefer to pay the missed amount now, you can sign in online and pay using your debit or credit card. While you're signed in, please make sure we have your correct bank details.

An automated caller from "Amazon" is calling to get your details, be aware, this is a scam, just hang up.
Google is winding down Google Station, a program where it worked with partners to bring free Wi-Fi to more than 400 railway stations in India and “thousands” of other public places in several additional pockets of the world. Read More....
In short, to stay secure in an online world, we need to change our operating systems to Windows 10.
The slightly longer version of this is that, in order to do this, many of us will have to purchase new equipment and or software.
Compatibility issues with the New OS and older hardware and "will our programs still work" etc. will play a major factor in the tranisition for many of our business users and of course some home ones.
For the general user, like most of us at home, who Web Surf, write an occassional letter and check emails, the tranisition is a bit simpler, buy a new PC or Laptop.
It'll do all the basic functions that we are used to, be more secure and generally nowadays wont break the bank.
Upgrade? Call now, or fancy a new one - See our PC Builds section for an idea of prices.
Specifically, Microsoft is accepting greater data protection responsibilities. The changes to contractual terms will apply globally and to all of
Microsoft’s commercial cloud customers — whether public or private sector entity, or large or small business. Read more....

Steve has been helping me out with computer problems for a few years, from setting up to looking for disappearing files. He is the most prompt person I know, give him a call and if he can't help you over the phone, he will be round almost immediately to sort out the problems'. I recommended Steve as a very reliable and knowledgeable person.
Pat, Farnborough, Hampshire
I have known Steve for his computer prowess, for about ten years. Not only have I bought from him, but he has also set computers up for my firm and has provided good advice along the way. I have found his charges to be reasonable and look forward to continuing working with him for many years.
Owen, London, W4
I met Steve some years ago but it was only when I had “nuisance” computer problems that I sought his professional help. Despite other “experts” telling me the problem was unsolvable Steve thought it through and came up with the solution. Since then we have bought a lap top from him for my wife to use and he set that up and it has worked consistently and perfectly since purchase.
If you are stressed by other “experts” talk to Steve. His lateral thinking and ability to deal with things and his on going support are impressive and much appreciated by me and by many others I suspect.
Roy Fairhead MBE, Windlesham, Surrey
I recently used Steve's Computer Services and I received a prompt response with efficient and reliable service at an affordable cost. I would not hesitate to recommend Steve.
Anna, Aldershot, Hampshire
Having struggled to find desk-top computer suited to scientific work and disappointed with the offerings of the major retailers sought an alternative and found firstname.lastname@example.org. Within two weeks I had the spec I needed built and running and at a considerable saving in price.
Professor Mike Clifford, Ash, Surrey
“I purchased my first PC from Steve in 2005 and since then have bought two more together with two generations of wireless routers. The repeat purchases are illustrative of my satisfaction with Steve’s choice of equipment and software and his quality of service. I bought my most recent router in December 2012 & PC in March 2018 and both have given excellent problem-free service"
