Troubleshooting a computer system, whether it's a desktop, laptop, server or printer, can be tedious but time consuming. This is where experience, knowledge and patience play a key role in getting your system up fast.
Whether it's hardware or software, good troubleshooting skills separates the real technicians from the wanna bees. In either case, troubleshooting can consume 80% to 90% of the time spent repairing your system. Users use different computers in different environments, different software and all have different internet habits.
Most of troubleshooting is common sense to the computer savy friend, neighbor or family member. But, sometimes that something else that they don't know is what's causing the problem.
The majority of the problems are caused by viruses, malware or spyware. Another cause of system malfunction is dust buildup within your system. Once this buildup of dust, fibers, lint, etc. is formed and the heat generated inside is trapped, it won't be long before your system is down. To determine what exactly burnt and is keeping your system from powering up is where we come in.
With the proper tools used by our experience technicians, we can determine the cause of the problem almost immediately. Most of the times your system can be fixed the same day or by the next day. The only time that your system may be down more than two days would be if special parts need to be ordered. This may take 3 to 6 business days determining which vendor has the part or it's availability. You do have the option to pay for overnight shipping.
These days most computer users have some knowledge of computers, compared to the end-users a decade ago. Some may have a friend, a neighbor or maybe a family member that has some knowledge or experience with computers.
