Do you have a PC laptop or desktop in your home that has seen better days? After years of use any computer can slow down. This is due to downloading apps, saving data, deleting files, drive defragmentation, and sometimes viruses and malware. I have one right here!


My old Dell desktop. I’ve had it over 9 years! While it does still work, it is definitely slower.


Besides working on my own computers, in my IT technician days, I had to troubleshoot, repair, and upgrade many, many, many PCs. No matter how many times you do it, the process is never exactly easy. Yes, I have a system and I know what to do, but some things never change. There are many parts in the process that are just a pain in the butt… backup the data, check and clean for viruses and malware, format the hard drive, reinstall windows, reinstall device drivers, reinstall software, move data back. Does that sound like a lot? It does to me, and I’ve done it hundreds of times! Yes, PC repair can be daunting. The average PC user may not know where to start.


FreshStart can help with that. Usually when you decide to upgrade your PC hard drive, you will have to go through many of the steps that I mentioned above… manually! FreshStart makes the process easier by having just about everything that you need preinstalled on a brand new, larger hard drive. It will even help you move your data! And it comes with a screwdriver, SATA connector, and detailed instructions.

Installing the FreshStart kit can take only 30 minutes. In this time your computer will:

  • Run faster.
  • Be guaranteed virus free & have a free 90 day trial license of Norton Security.
  • Have all the same data, settings, photos, and music transferred from your old PC hard drive.
  • Have more storage.
  • Keep your old drive as a backup. All of your existing data will remain.


The FreshStart kit includes:

As mentioned the FreshStart kit comes as a bundle.

  • A brand new, high capacity (500 GB for laptop, 1 TB for desktop) Western Digital hard drive
  • A PC service screwdriver and an instruction book
  • A SATA cable (plus power supply cord in desktop kits)
  • A 90-Day trial of Norton Security Software preloaded on the new hard drive.

Installing the FreshStart Kit is not difficult.


Check out the video below to see how easy it is. This video shows a laptop kit, but the desktop version is just as easy. You remove the old hard drive. If your hard drive has brackets you move those to the new drive just as they were on the old drive, secure the drive in place, connect the SATA and power cables, and the physical part is done!
