Setup A New Computer

by | Jan 5, 2015

Many people purchase a new computer and wonder what do I do now?

Ingram Computer Services can setup your new computer. We can also transfer all your files, settings and programs. We also install software that most people use everyday and do not even realize it.

We are not going to show you how to transfer all your files, settings and programs. We are going to talk about software programs you should install on your new computer.


I need to watch DVDs and/or Bluerays

You want to install the K-Lite Codec Pack.
Codecs allow your media player to play certain types of videos and audio.


I need to install Microsoft Office

Microsoft Office is not free. It is not part of Windows. Microsoft has Office 365 which is $10 per month or $99.99 per year. You can install it on 5 computers/devices which is a pretty good deal.

If you are looking for a free office suite, LibreOffice is a great alternative. The have comparable programs to Word, Excel and PowerPoint that are very easy to use. You can even read and write all Microsoft Office files.


I have Windows 8. I want my Start menu back!

ClassicShell.net is a free start menu for Windows 8.


I hate Windows built in CD burner

CDBurnerXP is a free CD/DVD burning program. Reminds me a lot of the old Nero. It will burn audio CDs too.
