    We had an issue with one of our laptops. Basically - it wouldn't turn on. I reached out to Dan via Facebook. I didn't know Dan prior to this, but took the postings to heart and gave him a chance. What a great move that was!!! Dan was very precise in what his skill set was. He was very up front about pricing and was VERY affordable. His work was EXCEPTIONAL and very quick. I can not give enough praise and compliments to Dan for his work and service!!

    Dan Burkett of CompuTek Services got in touch with me about my Dell Inspiron, which had been running rather slowly and was not allowing me to connect to the internet.

    Out of all the people who replied to my request on Thumbtack.com, Dan's reply stood out the most for me. He sounded extremely knowledgeable, was both professional and personable, and the amount he charged was within my budget.

    Because I had to be at work on the day and time that Dan was available to pick up my computer, I arranged for my husband to bring the computer to him. It took only a few days for him to solve my issue, part of which was caused by the need for more memory. He offered to install the additional memory, for a slightly higher yet reasonable charge.

    When I finally brought my computer home, hooked it up, and logged in, I was pleased to see that it was running faster than it had in years.

    Thanks, Dan, for doing such great work! I will certainly recommend you to my friends!

    Dan did a fantastic job restoring my lost files from a corrupted flash drive. He was extremely flexible and accommodating with the drop off and pick up. His price is reasonable and he is very professional. He saved some very important information that I thought was lost forever!

    Dan cleaned up my computer and did it in a timely manner. He also kept me updated throughout the process. I would use him again without thinking twice. Thanks.

    Dan gave me excellent communications about what was wrong with my computer and my options. He easily fixed what the computer guys at Office Max could not fix in terms of a virus. He was courteous and serviced the computer in a timely manner. I will take any future tech problems to him for sure.

    My PC kept getting attacked by fake browsers when I would go to any website. He found I had 351 traces of malware with 9 major infections. He cleaned all of that up, installed a new anti virus for me at no extra charge and I had my PC back within a couple days. I highly recommend him. He was very nice, courteous and answered all of my questions

    I own a small photo booth rental business, and Dan has been very helpful on several occasions when I've had technical difficulties with my website and my printers. He was able to log in remotely and make changes where necessary. He is very informative and is not condescending like some of the other "professionals" in the field. I would highly recommend Dan and DB CompuTek for any of your computer repair and troubleshooting needs!

  • 5/5 stars August 27, 2014

    Dan was excellent to work with, flexible, considerate, and honest. He offered suggestions without feeling like he was trying to bleed more money from me. In fact, the repair took a little longer than he expected, so he discounted his rate. He'll get my next call.

    I was extremely hesitant to give the computer I built and record with to anyone but not anymore. Dan identified my problem very quickly (ran diagnostics and pinpointed my faulty CPU) and kept me in the loop as progress was being made. He is a very knowledgeable individual who went out of his way to make sure I felt comfortable having him work with my computer. The computer world can contain an arrogant, condescending atmosphere but Dan never once exhibited this type of behavior. The job was done fast and thorough, the service was amazing, the quality was outstanding and the communication with him was terrific. I would recommend him to anyone. I have absolutely nothing bad to say about my experience. I am never taking my computer anywhere else again!

    Dan resolved my computer issue in about a week. Was very courteous and went out of his way to pick up my PC and drop it off. Provided wonderful service and was always available and kept me aware of what was going on throughout the process. Best price I was quoted for.

  • 5/5 stars July 3, 2014

    Dan did an outstanding job! Not only did he fix my issue but did it in an amazing short amount of time. He was professional and kind. I would encourage anyone to utilize his services for all of their computer needs! And his prices can't be beat! Great job!

    Dan was very helpful!! Would recommend his services to anyone.

  • 5/5 stars February 9, 2014

    Dan was extremely professional and kind the entire time we did business together. He was very flexible in regards to the time and location of my laptop repair, and everything was fixed and returned to me in two days. On top of all that, you can't beat that $50 price anywhere else. Highly recommended for any type of computer virus removal.

    My wife's laptop was constantly showing the blue screen of death. We tried using the restore CDs but to no success. Dan did an excellent job not only reimaging her laptop but also saving all of her data and improving the speed and performance of it. Thanks again Dan for a timely and pleasant experience.

  • 5/5 stars October 1, 2013

    Dan replied to my request very quickly and picked up the stuffs on Sunday. You would normally not expect someone perform the service on Sunday.

    Professional and courteous.

Question and answer

Q. What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?

A. Do your research! Ask a lot of questions, even questions you know the answer to. Make sure they carry contractor's liability insurance as a minimum. Make sure you are comfortable with someone you are trusting to let in your home or work on your computer. If something doesn't feel right, it's not right.

Q. If you were a customer, what do you wish you knew about your trade? Any inside secrets to share?

A. I've done a lot of research and found that most people are uncomfortable paying what they think is too little for computer related services. They've been conditioned by the big box stores to belive that paying $200-$300 for virus or spyware removal is acceptable. They think if you don't charge that much, you don't know what you're doing. That is NOT the case. I can work on 10 computers at once removing spyware or viruses, some take a long time, but most of that time is running scans that take an hour or 2.

Q. What questions should a consumer ask to hire the right service professional?

A. What is your experience level? Do you carry liability insurance? Do you warranty your labor? Can I see references? What's the your favorite part of the job? What's the difference between 32 bit and 64 bit windows? - If a computer tech doesn't know that, DON'T let them touch your computer! How many hours a night do you spend researching new technologies/ techniques? Why should I hire you?

Q. What important information should buyers have thought through before seeking you out?

A. Do I want my computer fixed right the first time without overpaying?

Q. Why does your work stand out from others who do what you do?

A. I go the extra mile without charging you extra for it. Every one of my computer services includes a system tune up and driver update. If I have to open up your laptop or desktop case I always clean out the inside - blowing out the dust bunnies adds life to your computer and saves you from premature hardware failure. I do this for for my love of computers and technlogy, not because this is just a way to make money. I'm not trying to get rich, I'd rather save you money and get your problem solved in the process.

Q. What do you like most about your job?

A. My favorite part is when a client brings me a 10 year old computer on it's last leg and they decide to buy a brand new custom. I love the "wow factor" they experience when they realize they don't have to wait 10 minutes for their computer to boot up and documents and programs pop right up when you click on them. The short answer would be, as cheesy as it sounds, having my customers leave 100% satisfied.
