PC Tune Up, also known as Preventative Maintenance, is where I run a battery of computer diagnostics and inspect your computer's program settings, start up defaults, disk drive condition for performance bottlenecks and apply all software updates. No parts are removed nor installed. I then adjust all your settings, remove unwanted applications and defragment your hard drive. This is non-invasive surgery and usually takes from 2 to 3 hours.

Computer Software and Hardware Upgrades & Updates is when you want, or need, new parts installed. Typically these are cases like upgrading to a newer software version such as Windows 8.1, upgrading to a larger capacity hard drive, or replacing a defective component such as a hard drive, CD drive, monitor, keyboard, etc. Parts don't just get replaced, they also require adjustments and updated software. Time required varies since a keyboard replacement can be far easier and faster than copying off programs from an old hard drive to a new hard drive. Once on-site I can provide an estimate.

Computer Repairs are when your computer has ceased working, won't power up or Windows doesn't completely load up like it used too. Poor performance can also sometimes mean a component has broken such as a hard drive having to re-access data over and over before it gets a good copy of the data. There are countless causes for computer failures and fortunately most failures do not translate to expensive repairs. In the case of a failed memory board the cost could be as little as $20 plus labor.

New Computer Shopping is never a fun exercise. With literally hundreds of various configurations and manufacturers, it can be quite a daunting task. Computers are not all equal and it's important that you know exactly what you need before you purchase. I can interview you and help you select the computer that best fits your needs and your budget. Once you have the computer I can then help get it set up, configured and running. I will also give you some on-site help on getting to know your new computer.
