PUT MYSELF OUT OF A JOB:
Every Mac/Windows client gets free high quality virus
software installed. Windows clients get tune up software also. Both
are automated to alert you to problems so hopefully you'll never have to
call me again! You can also purchase the software to gain additional features
beyond the free stuff. I also clean and sterilize the exterior with
Windex, clean the screen with white vinegar and
vacuum the dust as needed. Extreme cat hoarding slobs may even get their
power cords scrubbed for health reasons. Those are the clients
that always have fans clogged with mammal hair for some reason.
TOTAL DESKTOP COMPUTER CARE:
Windows & Mac:
I handle all software and hardware problems plus new
computer setup and transfer of old data. If the problem is unfixable I'll
give options. I also fix peripheral issues with printing, scanning and backups.
I've been fixing desktop PCs like this in Hwd since 1998! I've also been under
more desks than White House intern Monica Lewinsky. I offer FREE RAM
upgrades when I have old chips sitting around going to waste and I am dealing
with an old machine. This is less common with desktops.
TOTAL LAPTOP COMPUTER CARE:
Windows & Mac:
I can fix all software and some hardware laptop repair
problems plus new computer setup and transfer of old data. I can replace
bad memory (RAM), hard disks plus some other internal organs. I cannot fix
any other physical damage like c_r_a_c_k_e_d s_c_r_e_e_n_s (see below). I replace
spinning, slow hard disks in laptop with fast Solid State (SSD) drives
which can make an eight year old computer better than new! PC manufacturers
don't like you to hear about that they want you to buy another. Laptops that have lost their wireless
capability can be upgraded with a USB chip that has newer standards
and better range. I also offer FREE RAM upgrades when I have old chips
sitting around going to waste and I am servicing an old machine.
HOME NETWORKS/HOME ENTERTAINMENT:
Today the average home has a large screen TV, wireless tablets, fancy
sound systems, Playstations, Xboxes, integrated phone service, high speed
internet and wireless networks. I hook all those things up into one big
integrated system. A modern TV IS a computer. They even come with virus
checkers now. That display is made much more affordable because
the price of the flat screen unit is partially underwritten by the
programs like Netflix that come pre-installed with it. SO, if you buy a new TV for
just $275 AND you watch Netflix on it with the built-in program, THEN
the TV manufacturer gets paid a cut of what you are paying Netflix for
every months. They hope that, over time, this will recoup the
partial loss they may suffer building profitless screen hardware.
Windows files accidentally deleted or hard drives that have
been damaged/infected CAN get their data back in many circumstances.
But waiting too long or reformatting a hard disk and putting Windows back
creates a much more difficult file recovery task (if possible at all). At
best all the filenames will be ruined. Solution: back up your data regularly!
Don't make me clean up your me$$. Spinning hard drives (left) only
last 8 years before failure.
If I can't restore your info you may be doomed to going to a data restoration specialist who charges
2-5 thousand dollars to put your media into a clean room for rescue.
In the mid 2000's a Beverly Hills dentist had me come over every six months
for years. Then he blamed me when he had to spend $10,000 to get
back a tiny text file that was his patients billing records due to
hardware data loss. He was very self absorbed, argued with his revolving
door of dental assistants while he was in my mouth and had nobody but
himself to blame for his issues. If you only want preventative
maintenance twice a year you are going to get digital "cavities!"
BUT WAIT THERE'S MORE:
secure networks setup, repair and maintenance. Don't run a wireless net
removal and network security setup helps prevent future infection. Free
high quality Windows/Mac virus checkers included with tune ups. It automatically
scans for threats and updates itself when idle.
Setup of Ipads, Iphones, wireless networking, data transfer. But I don't
fix b_r_o_k_e_n s_c_r_e_e_n_s (see below).
