My friend is a real computer whizz and he convinced me to by a set of components which he would then put together. Unfortunately his mother has been taken seriously ill and it looks like 4-5 months before anything can happen. I was wondering if anyone knew any companies that do home visits in the midlands area for a situation like this?
Many thanks, Vincent Harrold.

Why not try doing it yourself, Vince3893?

And come back here for the help that these guys give so willingly.

lets make sure that you have ALL the components that will be needed...

Case. (This will normally include a power supply, but if it doesn't then one will be needed.)

Processor chip
(These two items will need to be compatible with each other!)

RAM (Which needs to be compatible with the motherboard)

Graphics card. (Which may not be needed if the notherboard has integrated graphics. If it doesn't, and you do need a card, it needs to be compatible with the motherboard)

Hard Drive(s).(compatible with the motherboard, i.e. SATA or not)

Optical (i.e. CD/DVD) drive(s)

And possibly a "network card", modem and/or sound card depending on whether they are integrated into the motherboard.

And an Operating system, eg Windows or Linux.

How much of this you have already got may infuence whether you go ahead on the build it yourself route.

Do you have everything?

Pc's are pretty much like Lego these days, so if you're careful you can do it yourself and feel like a god when it starts up first time.
That's what I'd do, but I'm a Yorkshireman and hate paying anyone to do something I think I can do myself.

I'd do it for you, but I'm in Newmarket.

Alternatively, find a small, local pc shop, explain your situation, and ask them how much they'd charge to put it together for you. Shouldn't take them more than a couple of hours

Midlands Huh! If you are anywhere near B27 then email me and you can bring your stuff around one evening and we'll knock you out a nice new PC in a couple of hours

Oh! I forgot to add, I will charge you but £10 won't break you, Bring your own beer
