Computer Hardware Brokerage
With our extensive network of suppliers and years of experience in the field, we can source almost any type of computer hardware or software. We specialise in server components but can also help to supply standard office computer systems. If you have the part number of the component you require we can cross reference our database and find working alternatives if the originals have become too rare or expensive.
Vitruvius Engineering also offers a full range of standard computer Upgrade services. If you have your own components, our engineers can come to you and install them. If you don't have the components or you need help deciding what part of your PC needs an upgrade we can advise and source any standard parts for you.
Retro Video Game console repair, refurbishment and Modifications
Repair and Refurbishments
From worn out CD lasers and motors to short circuits and IC chip burnout, there are a number of things that can go wrong with retro video game consoles. Fortunately, Vitruvius Engineering are offering repairs and refurbishments to breath a new lease of life into your old machines. If you are having trouble with one of your old consoles, email us with details of the problem. If our engineers think they can repair your machine then we will provide an estimated quote for the repair.
It can be hard to find those retro gems, and many where only ever released outside Europe. A BIOS mod allows you to play games from any region.
If you are going to play imports, and your TV or monitor supports it, you may also want to get a 50Hz/60Hz switch (for consoles from the 5th generation and earlier). Without it, your Pal 50Hz system will run games 16.6% slower than intended.
We do not stock mod chips, but if you have your own we can install it for you. If not, we can source them as well. Perhaps you have another Mod in mind. Anything from casing to hardware mods, email us and we will be happy to provide a quote.
