FAQ

General / pre-purchase

  • Can I customize my PC to suit my own needs/preferences?

    Many of our PCs can be customized using our online configuration tool. Simply click on the respective component or the "change" button. PCs without this button cannot be modified.

  • Does the PC come assembled, or do I have to put it together myself?
    You PC will come assembled, exactly as you configured it using our Custom PC Builder.
  • Does my PC come with a monitor, mouse and keyboard included?
    Our PC bundles come with a mouse, keyboard and monitor included. You can deselect these components using our configuration tool if you don't need them. Our normal Gaming PCs do not come with peripherals included. Should you require them, they can be added to your configuration using our handy, online tool. If you custom-build your PC from scratch, then you can choose to add peripherals, but they aren't automatically included in your order.
  • How do I know which games I can run?
    This depends on the system requirements of the respective game. Compare the recommended system requirements of the game (Google search: name of the game + system requirements) with the configuration of the PC you wish to order. If the configuration of the PC is higher than the specified system requirements, the game will run smoothly on the PC.
  • How can I find out how many FPS (Frames per Second) my graphics card will produce when running certain games?
    A helpful tip is to search the internet for videos of the respective game being played using the respective graphics card. This should give you a good impression of how well your graphics card will run your games.
  • Can I connect my PC with Wi-Fi?
    Desktop PCs can't automatically be attached to the internet like a laptop. You must select a Wi-Fi adaptor for your PC to be able to connect. You can do this easily with our hand online PC configuration tool.

Troubleshooting/Hardware questions

      • I have set up my PC but I'm still not getting a picture signal. What can I do?

        It is possible that you have connected the monitor to the disabled video card (onboard VGA port - found at the top of the motherboard) Please disconnect the PC from the power supply and connect the monitor to the lower connector port (the actual graphics card). Generally, every PC with an external graphics card comes with instructions on how to correctly connect the monitor

Questions about Windows

        • I have purchased a PC Bundle with Windows license. Where can I find the license code if I want to reinstall Windows later?

          With Windows 10, you no longer need to enter the license number to reinstall unless you have replaced basic hardware such as the mainboard. After the license has been activated for the first time, it is stored online by Microsoft and is saved for your PC configuration. This makes it possible to reinstall Windows without entering the license after a software error caused by a data carrier (DVD or USB stick). As soon as the newly installed Windows connects to the Internet for the first time, it is automatically reactivated unless basic hardware, such as the mainboard, has been replaced. We recommend that you set up a Microsoft account and transfer the license to it so that you can access it later (even if you change your hardware). If you have any further questions, please contact our customer service at support@megaportpc.co.uk.

 
 

Technical questions

        • My games are slow, or aren't loading. What can I do?

          Sometimes it helps to install the latest graphics drivers. These can usually be found on the manufacturer's page (AMD or Nvidia). You will find more information on your invoice.

        • I'm not getting any Wi-Fi or internet connection

          Desktop PCs do not have Wi-Fi connectivity by default (except PCs equipped with High-End motherboards.) There are two ways to connect your PC to the internet:

          • connecting directly to the router via Ethernet cable (LAN). This offers the best connection because it is stable and low ping).
          • connecting via a powerline network is also possible (a wired network that runs across you mains electricity).
          • of course, connecting via Wi-Fi is also a possibility, using an internal Wi-Fi adaptor or an external USB stick.
