Michael came to my rescue after I tried to take the cheap route to fix my laptop after a botched hard-drive repair. He knew exactly what was wrong and how to fix it. He went above and beyond to explain everything to me and ensure I understood what I needed and how to use it- installing all the appropriate drivers as well as setting me up for appropriate virus protection. His pricing was fair and upfront and he even looked into other services for me to consider at a later time. Professional, knowledgeable, and caring. I would highly recommend his services, and have his card on my fridge already!
I hired Rob when our PC died. He was very responsive, understood the urgency of getting our new PC running. He recovered our hard drive for us, recovering everything needed. Rob was also willing to go the extra step and provide his technical input on both hardware and software. I enjoyed working with Rob and will recommend him to family and friends. I would definitely hire Rob again.
I met Mike at his house to pick up a SATA/IDE adapter and when I got it home I couldn't get it to work with my hard drive. Mike came out to my house and figured out what was wrong, and got it to work. Smart and technologically advanced, he's got your back!
Jim was very thorough in his troubleshooting of my laptop. Unfortunately it was the mobo so no fix was available. However he did recommend ways to get other parts and save the hard drive to transfer all the data to another cheap laptop. Thanks, Jim.
Found out my hard drive was dying from the Apple store but they refused to repair. They did refer me to thumbtack and Matt messaged right away. Professional, asked the right questions, and came to my place to do the work. Replaced dying hard drive with new hard drive, OSX already installed, in 30 min! And for less than Apple would have charged! Few weeks later, still running great.
Nick was very attentive and knowledgable with my particular computer issue. Unfortunately I have to get a new computer because the issue is beyond repair however he is the first person I will call to come back and transfer my hard drive from the old to the new one. Thanks Nick for your help!
I messaged with Garrett on thumbtack about my laptop going kaput. I brought it in the following week and Sam was quick and helpful in diagnosing the problem (hard drive). It was replaced and ALL of my data was saved! Sam was nice enough to include the data from another dead laptop I brought in as well! I got my laptop back faster than ever in 1 day!
Helpful, quick, friendly, and reasonable price. Will definitely call them again if I run into any problems.
I had a problem with my computer hard drive this suddenly went completely out on me. I contacted Mr. Simmons who immediately came out and replaced my hard drive. He also took the time to saved as much as he could from my prior hard drive. He was very prompt, professional, confident and excellently knowledgeable at diagnosing any computer issues. If you are looking for excellent computer service look no further than P C Ambulance 1. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for excellent computer service.
I could not boot my desktop to windows 7. Michael determined I had a hard disk failure. He was extremely courteous and understood the problem. The last thing I wanted to do was replace the hard drive and start over again reloading my programs and configuring them. My data was backed up but my programs were not. He was able to clone the drive and save all of my settings which was a great relief. When he brought the computer back everything worked and it was better than before. There is no question that I would recommend Michael. Every family needs a Nurse, Auto Mechanic and a computer guy. I've found my computer guy. Thank you Michael.
What originally was thought to be a quick fix turned out to be a need to do a system restore. Frank and his team worked hard to solve several issues and the system is running like new. Turned around in 36 hours! Glad I found them and their shop at Booths Corner is an easy drive. I'll use them and refer them to friends and family without hesitation.
I contacted Access Point Technologies because I had a failing disk and had to back up my files immediately. James came to my house a few hours later, backed up my files, installed a new hard drive, downloaded the browsers and programs I need, recalibrated my computer for maximum speed and efficiency, and gave me lots of helpful tips to keep my computer running efficiently. He was there for several hours and I definitely feel I got my money’s worth! He also said I can call him any time I have questions. I highly recommend him.
I had a simple problem - removing the back from an HP laptop. I thought I had removed all the screws, but 2 were hidden behind labels. He opened the laptop, replaced the hard drive and reattached the back for only $25. Very fair. He also sells very reasonably priced used pcs and laptops.
I know Luke from work. I had an issue with connecting my home computer to the company's site. He offered to come to my home and fixed the issue very quickly. He was on time and even downloaded an old hard drive restoring pictures. Recommend highly. Chris K.
Within less than 10 hours I went from a state of total panic, and unable to work, to back up and running! Local (MD) companies I spoke with in the MD/DC area were quoting me a week (and more money) to complete the same data recovery -- Jerry and his team drove from Delaware to Annapolis, MD to help me and arrived just a couple hours after we spoke. Job done to perfection. Sincere gratitude is an understatement!
I am a break/fix guy. My company, FindANerd.com, has been in business since 2000.
I get calls and take jobs where Data Recovery may be involved. I handle a lot of different types of calls, but sometimes more profound problems need a 'Clean-Room' service.
A Clean-Room service actually takes the drives apart and gets data from the platters directly.
I have been using CompRecovery for the last few years, and knowing that I have a back-up like this makes my life a lot easier.
This is a nerd that nerds go to...
My husband I own & operate a corner deli in Philadelphia. Len was a customer of ours. Approximately six years ago, my Systemax Tiger PC (yes, the infomercial one with all the bells and whistles) started running "funny". I asked Len to look at it. He couldn't repair it in our home (he makes housecalls). He took it to his shop and returned it, not only operating much quicker but with software installed to help me keep the PC running more efficiently.
This past summer the Tiger died. We called Len to see if he could resurrect the now 10 year old computer. He came to our home and diagnosed the problem as the power supply. This time he was able to repair the PC in our home. He recommended that we purchase an external hard drive and also suggested newer (free) software to keep the Tiger running.
I think that Len provides excellent technical and customer service. I highly recommend him for computer repair and service.
Affordable Computers delivered excellent service inexpensively, I don't understand the negative reviews as my computer was taken in and returned in 2 days without any of the viruses or problems I was having. I had a printer with the tower and they fixed the printer for me at no extra cost. I recommend calling them for repairs first!

Granddaughter ran through the cord, the computer fell from desk to the floor and hit on its upper right hand corner where the cord plugs. The corner was cracked and damages and the cord fit very loosely but the computer for a few minutes and than went blank.
If it can not be repaired, I at least want to recover the data on the hard drive.
