Computer Repair & Maintenance
I can help you troubleshoot any problem with
your computer or network. I repair desktops,
netbooks, and notebooks whether home built or
name brand. I service Dell, HP, Compaq, Sony,
Toshiba, IBM, Lenovo, Acer, Gateway, emachines,
and more. I can troubleshoot startup issues, hardware,
and software problems. I can test and replace
failed components - Most common: power supply,
hard drive, motherboard. Most people learn to
live with their computer problems. Don't live
that way. Let me help.
Is it slow? Did it just get a virus? Has your
screen gone out? Has your laptop been dropped
and will no longer start up? Does the battery no
longer charge? I can test and repair or replace
failed components - Most common: Hard drive,
keyboard, LCD screen, LCD inverter board, failed wireless,
Viruses used to be merely a joke or a prank, but
they have since evolved into serious threats,
most of them now try to steal from you. Most
viruses are completely hidden. They silently
infect while trying to steal your passwords,
credit card numbers, bank account information, and your identity. I
have the tools to remove spyware or viruses and
the anti-virus software to keep you safe in the
future. Viruses, malware and spyware are the
most common reasons that your computer will act
strange or start operating slowly. You may be receiving
annoying pop-ups or maybe your hard drive is
constantly working. These are a couple of signs
that your computer could be infected with
spyware. Let me help.
Computer Parts & Accessories
I keep many new computer parts in stock. If
there is anything you need, I usually have it
right now, or can I order it for you. If your
hard drive fails, I can usually replace it the
same day you bring your computer in for repair.
Parts that I normally have in stock: power supply, hard drive, memory,
network router, wi-fi-router, network card,
video card, backup drive, keyboard, mouse,
speakers, printer, cables, and more.
Operating System Reinstall
Computers slow down because of the abundant
software, plugins, and adware installed on them
over time. Viruses can cause damage to system
files requiring a reinstall. I will back up all
of your photos, documents, music, etc., erase
your hard drive, and reinstall the operating system. Do not
run "System Restore" on your own, it can delete
your personal files and many times it will even
fail and make things worse. I have well proven
methods to reinstall with all the latest
updates/service packs while saving your personal files. Many people say
their computer runs faster than when it was new.
I service Windows XP, Windows Vista, and Windows
Windows 7 Upgrade Advice
Call me for Windows 7 upgrade advice. I can help
you before and after the decision to upgrade.
Windows 7 outperforms Windows Vista and is the
new standard for all new Windows computers. Most
older computers are only 32-bit. 64-bit Windows
option is much faster and is common on new
computers with Windows 7. If you purchase a new
computer and want good performance, look for one
with Windows 7, 64-Bit, a dual or quad core
processor, and 4Gigs of RAM or more. If
upgrading your current Vista or WinXP computer, it may need
other upgrades first, or maybe it is just too
old. Call me for advice.
Migrating Files to a New Computer
Have you just purchased a new computer and need
your files transfered off of your old one? I can
transfer your documents, photos, music, and
e-mail from your old computer to your new
computer. Even if your old computer does not
run, I can sometimes recover the files. Do not throw
away your old computer, bring it to me and I
will recover your files and recycle it for you.
This service also includes a new computer Set-Up
Tune-Up. I will remove the trial software,
perform windows updates, and install a the best Anti-Virus software.
Upgrades are a great way to extend the life of
your machine for another few years without
investing in a new computer. In most cases
installing more memory, a faster CPU, a new hard
drive, and/or a new video card can significantly
speed up your system.
Sometimes a new computer replacemet is better
than repairing an old computer. I have new
computers in stock. Call me to discuss your new
When replacing an old computer, consider a new
notebook computer. Notebook computers have come
down in price in the last few years making them
a popular choice. I have new laptop computers in
stock. Call me to discuss your new laptop
I can set up wired or wireless networks so they
are secure and easy to use. Sharing internet,
printers, and files will be easier than ever. I
have wi-fi routers in stock.
I can install a backup system to guard against
data loss in the event of a primary hard drive
failure. Everyone needs to backup files, but
most don't do it. I can make sure the right
stuff is getting backed up to the right place,
and that you know how to restore it if needed.
Software & Hardware Setup
If you need an upgrade for your software, a new
program installed, or have any hardware you need
set up, I can take care of it.
