    I was having a lot of problems with my year old hp Pavilion notebook that was crashing repeatedly during a days usage. I had bought into an on-line company (iyogi) for remote access tech. help and anti-virus service. They had control over my laptop for about 4 months and I spent hours a day multiple times each month when I had to contact them about the same performance problem issues that began when they installed their program. By the time we terminated their service my hp was crashing multiple times a day. I am not a techie and I had no idea how to fix their mess. Somehow I found Compugeekz on Thumbtack and stated that i had a computer problem and very quickly had a reply from George Sievers offering his services, he sent me a number to call and by the end of our conversation I felt there actually was some hope for my laptop that I thought had a hardware issue and was probably going to cost a lot of money to repair.
    I took my machine to him and the next day he called and told me I could come pick it up. He had cleaned the 'bugs' out of it and he was 'stressing' it by running several programs at once and no crashing.
    I have had no more crashing, the fan used to sound like it was running hard all the time, no more of that. I can run multiple windows and browsers at one time, no problem. I am extremely pleased with the work he did, he even called and e-mailed me to make sure it was running properly and to see if I had any further questions or concerns. His pricing is very competitive and actually was lower than an amount I had paid a couple years back for PC work that wasn't even done right. I will be taking that PC to Compugeekz for him to work his magic on next.
    It is nice for a non techie in a high tech world to have someone close by, that is available for questions, cares enough about his work and reputation to do several follow ups and is fair and honest. In this world, that is a rare commodity.

    Thank You Pamela,
    I appreciate you taking the time to write so much. I know how much it means to people to have trust. I myself would pay for trust alone if I could. I do my best but mainly, I want to be there when my best isn't enough as well. Thats why I guarantee my work. I am so happy to be able to fix something, but as we all know products that we use are built to break. Thats why its so important to not just fix something and get paid but to fix something and be there for the customer when it breaks again. I am grateful to hear that I have earned your trust. Thank You Pamela!

    George was great. Punctual and thorough along with excellent customer service. He explained everything in terms I could understand. I would highly recommend his services.

    We found George from Compugeekz and are very pleased with his service. Our computer would not even turn on, and we were concerned that it would need to be replaced. To our amazement, George repaired it for a very reasonable cost! After we got it back, he called to be sure that everything was working well. We are thrilled with our "new" computer, and definitely would recommend him to others. Thank You George for such great, affordable service!!

    George replaced the hard drive and operating system on my computer. He explained everything from start to finish, from how long it would take, to what he would charge, as if we were working on this together. I will call George in the future if I ever need any more computer work done. He was very professional.

    Staples had my laptop for over a month and coule not fix it, while within a week George Sievers had it fixed and ready to use just like new. He replaces my hard drive with a larger one of my choice and reinstalled windows for me. :)

    Thanks for the review Amber! I am glad that I was able to restore your laptop, it was great to hear and see how happy it made you! :) Contact me any time...

    I used Compugeekz to have a high-end gamer built. New, quality gamers are very expensive online, so I was looking for someone close by to build one at a lower price. George was amazing! He gave me a print out of what he suggested for a gamer with all the cheapest prices he could find - he also gave me alternate options depending on what my price range was. George kept in contact with me throughout the process to let me know when the parts came in, and it took almost no time for him to put it all together and drop it off at my house. It works great and I love that I was able to customize everything I wanted, from the hardware inside to the awesome case and monitor sitting on my desk. He also guaranteed his work, so any problems that may arise in the future with hardware or odd technical things, George said he would look at for free, which saves me a ton of time and money!

    I have purchased many, many computers for my business that my employees seem to crash. I would take the computers to the “name brand names” to have them fixed and wishfully restored back to working status. Very disappointing, time after time I ended up taking the computers to the garbage when no one could help me. When I first started using Computer Geeks, I was so relieved that I didn’t have to pitch another computer into the trash. Goodness I could have saved so much money! George had my system back in working condition for my business. George even explained to me why we were having the same issues over and over. This will definitely help my business by preventing me from having purchase new computers, not only by preventative measures, but also by having Computer Geeks on my speed dial. Thank you so very much George.

    I started having problems before my son's warranty was up with the Geek Squad. I took his lab top in several times, they kept it for several weeks and when I got it back, the same problem kept coming back. I took it to Compugeekz and it was fixed after one try.

    Thanks for the 5 stars hun. I am here for you!

    I try to build my own computers and, when I get in trouble (which almost always happens) I call Compugeekz. I get quick personal service and the answers that I need. I build "hot" gaming machines and I need the technical expertise.

    George S. from Compugeekz replied to this review on April 28, 2014:

    Fred, Thank You for your review! Let me know if I can assist you with anything else.. :)

    My computer just froze up, wouldn't do anything - i had no idea what happened. George drove to my home the same day I called, picked up my computer and had it back to me the following day, problem fixed. Didn't have to leave the house and he didn't cost a fortune! Great service, great price

Q. What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?

A. Can you do "this"? The answer is Yes :)

Q. What do you wish customers knew about you or your profession?

A. Everything I do involves passion and I am very passionate when it come to computer systems. It takes a lot of patience and dedication to get into this kind of work. They have always said that if you love what you do, you will never work a day in your life. I believe in this quote, I enjoy my work especially when I know how frustrating the problems can be to someone and their personal life. Let me deal with the hard parts, its what I do. Let's get you back on your seat, working on your projects with the security and efficiency you need.

Q. How did you decide to get in your line of work?

A. It is what i enjoy and find fascinating. Also, my father has always been involved with computers. I have always gotten the hand-me-downs when he would upgrade, so I took interest at a very early age.

A. Yes, I am a student at Purdue.
I am studying Computer Information Systems and Technology with a focus in Networking. I am also a hardware guy, I cant get enough of learning about technological advancements and achievements.

Q. If you have a complicated pricing system for your service, please give all the details here.

I am right by the side of the customer rooting for the best, I am nothing but a tool used to fix the problem. I aim at recommending the efficient route thinking long term, not a job done just enough to get you back next week.

Q. If you were advising someone who wanted to get into your profession, what would you suggest?

A. If you dont like people and you can't find patience and tolerance, this is not for you.
