Viruses in a computer can cause many problems, Tattwa Networks cannot control what or how the virus affected the computer before removal. Tattwa Networks has a 30-day guarantee on virus/malware removals if the virus/malware that Tattwa Networks worked on returns.
If within 30 days you suspect you have an instance returning, please call us immediately. If after 30 days and you have a returned infection, we will discuss what AV products you purchased and decide on the best level of support.

Pickup, Repair & Deliver and Drop Offs
Tattwa Networks provides pickup services for your computer to get repaired at our workshop. When repairs are finalized Tattwa Networks will deliver it back to you. Cost depends on the service and the price is listed on Tattwa Networks website, only the surrounding areas of Diamond Creek.
Tattwa Networks address and identifiable information will be given upon request or booking so you can verify our location. Because Tattwa Networks is a home-based business.
Tattwa Networks will keep you updated on repairs and changes or any other issues discovered using either phone, SMS or email. Regular updates with SMS can be arranged and often is provided.
The usual time for desktop computer repairs will be usually 1-4 days but can be longer (1-3 weeks or longer) depending on the parts which may need to be ordered for the repair, the severity of the problem and other encountered issues.
Tattwa Networks is operated by one individual.
There might be an increased delay at point’s which is beyond Tattwa Networks control. Tattwa Networks may need to carry out onsite work, scheduled remote sessions and website services for other customers which may hinder repair time.
Tattwa Networks will strive to let you know if there is
* There are extra costs involved in replacing hardware which may need to be purchased and installed or software installations which may also need to be purchased.
Laptop repairs can take considerably longer to repair depending on the fault. (2 days – 2 week’s average).
There can be many different parts and measures that need to be taken into consideration for each laptop and for acquiring replacement stock as each laptop is created differently and has its own specific parts.
If the laptop has a major electrical issue Tattwa Networks may recommend to send it to a motherboard repair specialist to get repaired.
Tattwa Networks allows computer drop-offs at our home based location. Our workshop is in Diamond Creek. We will let you know on appointment the location of the drop-off and we will arrange someone to meet you to retrieve your computer.
Also you can make a booking for a scheduled drop off using our online booking form.
Warranty on hardware upgraded or replaced is based on the warranty of the product. Any hardware fault can be a general fault on arrival for new hardware or caused by another issue within the system.
For example, most HDD’s have a 1-year warranty to which it can be replaced. Tattwa Networks is not held responsible for hardware faults as this can most likely be the fault of the manufacturer, other unforeseen events or the user but we will endeavor to assist which may involve service costs.
We always recommend our customers to take regular backups of there hard drives to an external device or online storage as computer parts can be highly sensitive and can be prone to failure. We cannot be held responsible for any lost data because of hardware failure.
Tattwa Networks will organize the repair or replacement of the faulty hardware if in our given warranty period and if the warranty is still applicable from the manufacturer within that time.
If we find the fault is because of the user, data recovery is needed or replacement parts are needed then there will be more costs involved.
Tattwa Networks wont be held responsible for data loss on a new hard drive / storage device provided by us as hardware faults happen and its up to the customer to make sure backup precautions are taken care of.
New PC Builds
We build PC’s for our customers based on what they specify and what they need. We try to use the most stable and quality parts based on the needs and total spend.
PC’s come with a 1 year hardware warranty, where we will send back for replacement the faulty or problematic part if there is an manufacturer issue.
If the user damages the computer and is not a manufacturer fault, then the part may not be able to be replaced on warranty and the user may be charged extra to replace the part.
There may be delays on part arrival when we are building or we may need to change a part to something similar as the wholesaler may be out of stock.
For the satisfaction of our customers if we cannot fix the problem we will deduct what we did fix during the service. If we didn’t fix anything during the service we will not charge for the service.
Onsite repairs may be charged the minimum rate depending on the situation, even if problem couldn’t be fixed because its unfixable. (Reason being: travel costs and time diagnosing). If we couldn’t fix the problem because of lack of experience we will deduct a partial cost.
We have a 30-day guarantee on our services, so if the problem isn’t completely fixed we will have another look for you to see what went wrong and the best approach to fixing it. There may be an added cost if we find a new problem which is contributing to the issue.
Computers can be unpredictable so sometimes we may think the problem is fixed but then other problems can creep up. Software and hardware are made with complicated programming and technology so it’s usually the case that no software and hardware is fault proof.
I understand that any extra work added to website design is charged extra on top of the quoted price, the total price is the price of the quote plus any extras if there is any.
Changes or updates to the website beyond the agreement will be charged at $50 hr or proposed price by the Tattwa Networks
