I love to help people with technology. My gift is fixing computers and training a person to use their computer more effectively. I have been a high school science teacher, a trainer of software, and computer and network support.

About Brent Jones, Computer Guy

hired 2 times on Thumbtack

I fix Windows personal computers, software, hardware, networks, printers. I became a Microsoft certified professional in 1995. But I started with DOS 1.1 in 1981 and am qualified on Windows 8.1.

I have trained hundreds of students and business users to use computers. My father, who is 90, gets regular support over the phone from me. My patience with people is legendary.

My prices are less than half what the Geek Squad of Best Buy charges. You can contact me by email or just call me. Many times, I can tell you a solution over the phone without charging you a thing.

Please note that I don't work on Apple computers.
