Welcome to Solent Way Computers

Brief history of Nigel Williams – Solent Way Computers founder.

Solent way computers was founded by Nigel Williams a local Lee-on-the-Solent resident in January 2019 after spending 32 years in the corporate world focusing in IT, customer relationship, and communication systems.

Nigel started his career with an apprenticeship at IBM back in 1988 and from there worked for a local Fareham company (Kommunicate, formally Erskine Printing Systems) for 9 years again in IT & Communication systems before moving to a large global corporation (Avaya)  where he spent 19 years traveling all over the world designing corporate contact center solutions.

Nigel left the corporate world in December 2018 ending up with over 150 staff across the whole of the EU.

About Us Now

Wanting to move away from dealing with large companies and corporates Nigel Founded Solent Way Computers and now only focuses on support Home / Residential users and Small businesses in the local area. It started with just Nigel and his Wife Esther supporting the admin side of the business and in the last couple of months have just hired two local boys (Harley Youngman & Frankie Haynes) who will work full time while starting an open university degree in computing and IT.

We are located at Unit 7 at the Fareham Innovation Centre, behind CMAST college. We chose this location rather than the high street as the Innovation Centre has a large car park and if brining in heavy equipment you can park right outside our door.

We aim to speak in plain English and not techy mumbo jumbo so you can be sure for a clear explanation of what’s wrong with your computer… If you need new computers or upgrades, we will identify your exact need and can source and supply plus fully setup and migrate all your data from your existing systems. We are not tied into any one manufacturer so can find the perfect computer for you.

No matter if you have a computer running slow, suspected virus or malware problem we can help. We offer a complete disconnect remove, fix deliver and reconnect service so you do not have to lift a finger. We test the machine after it’s been installed back in your home or business and guarantee our work.

No matter what your problem give us a call either on 01329 535 001 or our freephone number 0800 311 8001 and we’ll happily discuss your needs.

Most of our work is undertaken at a fixed price so there will be no surprises.

We look forward to being of service to you

Nigel upgraded my poor performance iMac with an SSD drive and now its a total joy to use, unbelievably fast. He transferred everything off of my old drive including over 40,000 photos without a hitch and rescued my music library that I thought I had lost. I thoroughly recommend Solent Way Computers.

Solent Way Computers were recommended to us by another local business. From beginning to end they were brilliant. We had a webpage designed and up and running within a week at a price that was excellent value for money. Frankie was our designer who was a true professional. He was extremely patient with us when talking through how we wanted our webpage to look. Nigel the owner was an absolute diamond as well. Cant Praise or thank the whole team at Solent Way Computers enough, Cracking Job - thank you.

The hard-drive on my PC failed - unable to open anything except the "auto-repair" (which didn't repair despite a number of attempts). Being a technology dinosaur I hadn't backed-up anything. Passwords, documents, photos, e-mails and everything else, all lost.Harley took the tower away, breathed on it, caressed it, encouraged it, chided it, didn't give up on it - and retrieved almost all my data from the dead hard-drive. He fitted a new hard-drive, transferred my data to it, updated the PC to Windows 10 (no licence fee), returned it, set it all up and gave me a beginner's run-through of Windows 10.When faced with a breakdown of anything technical - from washing machines & TVs to computers to cars - technophobes are ripe for being over-charged. But Solent Way Computers' bill was surprisingly low.Quick, thorough, knowledgeable, professional, customer-friendly, and fairly-priced. Can't ask for better.

Had problems with the Booting windows . But Nigel and his team helped out greatly. Even though once I got the PC to them it decided to work, they also diagnosed that one of the hard drives was starting to fail and also advice if the problem rears its head. Recommended to anyone who needs a hand with PCs

Nigel and his team upgraded my MAC with a SSD. Extremely quick, professional service. The upgrade and work was explained to me in detail beforehand. Excellent service - very reasonably priced with no hidden costs. Would absolutely recommend Solent Way Computers.

Couldn't fault the service from Nigel and his team. My 5 year old Apple Mac was very slow in responding on leaving it with the above for half a day it is now like new! It is quick responsive and like the computer I first bought. The staff are friendly and helpful and do not baffle with science and keen to get the best solution for any issues you have. I would have no hesitation in recommending them to sort any of your computer problems!!! Brian Bowler

Called Solent Computers to sort out a wireless problem with two printers which unexpectedly went down after a router update.The company reacted promptly to my emergency call, and a very professional young man quickly reinstalled them in little over an hour.They come highly recommended, not just for their expertise, but for providing first class service at a reasonable price.

Amazing service from Nigel, I called him this morning and he did my MacBook hard drive upgrade within 3 hours of me calling. It’s working like a brand new machine and I’m really pleased. Really reasonable price too! Highly recommend him to anyone. Thanks again Nigel 😊

More than happy with my laptop! Nigel helped me out of a complete hole and fixed a nightmare situation for me. My work output is now far more efficient and reliable plus I have someone I can rely on for all my PC and laptop needs. I will recommend to anyone and any business. The support was there on the day, the communication was instant, and the problem sorted. Plus - Nigel is professional, knowledgeable and genuinely there to help you. Thanks again. I cannot recommend enough!
