Computer Solutions was started back in 1997 after being asked to look at a computer as it was rumored that I knew a bit about them.


The experience with computer dates back to the 1970’s and the days of the Commodore and Atari.


Since writing a BASIC program and not having any storage and having to type it in each time wanted to use a new program. This went on to purchasing a new computer with a tape recorder and storage facilities.


Over the next few years programs where developed to store LP’s and Singles, recipes and even a database for every car in the UK.  This at the this was thought to be a good idea for car insurance companies although it soon became apparent that storage for such information became an issue.


From here on a research program was joined which later turned out to be research into the creation on the first CD.


After the research program, working in retail is what was drawn into. This still involved working on the Commorade 64’s and 128’s and also Atari ST and into the production on the Amstrad word processor the first computer to be bundled with a printer.


Over the next few year the first economical PC’s hit the market and MS-DOS. This also supported a database program which could hold thousands of records and the potential of it was incredible.


Several programs where then developed for large companies including Starline, Hereford Tiles and most famously Broadoaks Country House.  The owner has just bought a dilapidated house in Troutbeck and contacted us to sort his computer out.


From here the business grew and work was taken on for more programs to be written for companies to help them develop and also work got around about repairing computers and fixing problems.  This seen through the stages of Windows 3.1, 95, 98,. ME,  2000 and into Windows XP.  Through these years several hundred if not thousands of problems were solved with various systems and programs installations. New systems we purchased, built and put in place, viruses removed and data recovered, some website development work was also undertaken. Through advertising and word of mouth the business continued to grow and extra staff had to be taken on to manage the workload.


In 2004 a new member of staff joined the team as part of the Modern Apprenticeship Scheme. This enabled them to develop the skills and experience needed out in the workplace whilst also studying for a qualification.


After completing the course in 2006 they were offered a position in the company which they happily accepted. Over the next few year their knowledge, experience and skills continued to grow along with our workload and customer base. This seen through the stages of Windows XP, Vista and the releasing of Windows 7.


In 2009 a huge opportunity arose for this staff member to become the new owner of Computer Solutions. This was plunge into the unknown but the opportunity was taken on and grasped with both hands as it was always a dream to one day have their own business.


The business continued to grow and in 2011 an opportunity to benefit the business in a big way was finalized. 


The economic climate then had a rapid decline which affected thousand of businesses out there and lead to many of them ceasing trading or going into administration. This presented the company with new challenges but the business is constantly continuing to grow and develop along the way.


With the advances in technology and the development of new software, programs and hardware the company is continuing to develop and adapt to the ever changing climate. 


In 2017 it was scary how quickly the last eight years have gone by and how much we have overcome in that time and continue to do so. This is both as a company and for our customers on their range of issues and systems that have needed our services in the past, present and future. We constantly strive to provide our services and help in any way possible to get our customers systems working to the best for their requirements.


 It has been ten years since being the owner of Computer Solutions and now 2019. We would like to thank all of our past, present and future customers that we have looked after over the years and continue to do so.  The fast pacing changes in technology means we are continuously adapting our skills and knowledge so that we can offer the most up to date and relevant technology and solutions to all of our customers to meet their needs.


Computer Solutions celebrated it’s 25th anniversary in September 2022 and we would like to thank all of our customers past, present and future that have used our services during this time.  Looking back we can remember the changes in technology and how far things have become and been developed.  An example of this is in the terms of storage from CD to then DVD and then USB Drives, then the first ever Terabyte Hard Disk Drive and now to the advances in technology of Solid State Drives.    We continue to support the latest operating systems of Windows 8.1, 10 and 11, as well as, Windows Server and Apple Mac Operating Systems.
