Onsite Computer Repair Service in the Treasure Valley (Idaho)
Computers tend to fail at the worst possible times. Frustrating as this
is, it leads us to the question, “when is the best possible time?” The
best answer is never.
Customers just want their computers to work. They usually understand
the reality of things breaking once in awhile.
People just want to know they are getting the best PC computer repair, and
that they can afford it. Most people don't think to budget computer
repair, even businesses.

see your PC repair person so often you think they should be

most valuable asset. We keep your data safe from loss and
- 4. Computer repaired quickly?

Computer parts should never cost more than a new computer.

Computers are made of simple parts, there’s just millions of them. If one fails,
it could cripple the entire computer. Finding that one part, whether it is a
physical part (computer hardware) or programming errors (computer software) is
the real challenge to any computer repair support.
A person used to buy a computer and use it until something broke. Upgrades were
only necessary if it provided a needed feature. A new computer was something you
got when you could afford it.
The advent of the internet had a huge effect on the computer repair business.
Web masters tend to assume everyone has about the same computer equipment they do.
Since they work on a computer for a living, they usually have pretty nice computers.
So, everyone who is attached to the internet needs to keep up. The good news is,
computer prices keep falling.
Our Own Computer Repair Site in Nampa Idaho
The big advantage of the internet is the ability to obtain just about any type of
information. The disadvantages of the internet is while attached, you can get a
variety of different virus, adware, spyware types of problems. Some of these problems
can be devastating, not only to your computer, but your identity and bank accounts as
Since viruses have become the primary subject of computer support, it becomes
necessary to let the computer run time consuming scans. Charging by the hour for
this service would quickly cost more than a new computer.
Our solution to this problem is a work bench designed to troubleshoot several
PC’s at the same time. The result, you are only charged for keyboard time instead
of the full scan time. In a nutshell, scan time can add up to several hours while
keyboard time is only several minutes per scan, instead of an hour or more.
