News and Alerts  

A few people have contacted me and asked me about a company that called them 'in regards' to their Windows computer.

The person says that they can fix the problem if the person gives them remote access using 'logmein' or some other remote access site.


If possible (and you want to report them) write down the website and the number they give you for the remote access. Write down the date and time as well. Google the site name and search the site for a contact number and report the incident if possible.

Computer/Laptop repair prices

Data backup/recovery: ~$80 (does not include backup medium or replacement hard drive)

Description: We will make every possible attempt at recovering the data stored on your hard drive. We can copy it to either a replacement hard drive, thumb drive or to dvd/cd media. Data recovery is not an exact science and when a hard drive reaches the end of its life cycle it might not want to give up its data.


"Spring" Cleaning: ~$35-50 (depends on complexity and size of computer)

Description: Got dust bunnies on your heat sink? Every time you turn on your computer a big puff of dust erupts from it? Cleaning it yourself might lead to more problems than its worth, let us deal with the hassle of cleaning out your computer! A trained tech will take your computer outside to a covered area, and using compressed air we will blow out your system from top to bottom! We'll even get inside the power supply! We'll pull the case apart gently and get in all those spaces between the case and the plastic and get those dust bunnies out of there!


 Wipe and reinstall: $60 (add $30 for data backup)

Description: We will wipe your computer and reinstall your operating system of choice (Windows XP/Vista/7 or Linux) and put only the software YOU want back on it! Don't like the original anti-virus program that came on the computer? We'll recommend other free alternatives! We promise not to put on pesky "Tell us how we did!" surveys or other annoy-ware!
