Venom PC

  • Urbandale, IA 50322


Unfortunately, after Venom PC took the computer for repair, my phone and printer went out for four days at the same time. Four days later all was repaired and the computer came back. They'd had no way to contact me and all my information about this company was in the gone computer. I am a writer, and had lost many of my writing files downloading Windows 10. Venom was able to find some of them, and the person who brought the computer back and I finally were able to find the rest - a 312 page book, screen plays, stage plays. What a relief. Venom did a fine job and the delay was definitely on my end. I'd refer Venom to friends.

Chris Smith of NueTouch Technologies is simply phenomenal. He is easy to work with and has solved several of my computer issues. I would recommend him to anyone for computer work. He was able to remove malware from my computer without trying to sell me some bogus additional software, and overall improve the performance of my computer time and time again, as he has been my computer tech for 10 plus years. Chris Smith is your guy for sure. Contact NueTouch Technologies today!

I'll fix it no matter what! I offer many services to residential and businesses. If you're unsure what the issue is, you can either e-mail me, or call me. If I can't fix it, you don't pay! All my work is guaranteed and can be backed up by actual "businesses" I've done work for. My services include: * Data Recovery Is your hard drive failing? Every time you boot up your PC, are you just getting a black screen? Some recoveries can take under an hour while some can take a couple. * Operating System Repair/Install Windows XP, Vista, 7, doesn't matter! I can troubleshoot whatever the OS that is causing you to have a headache. * Hardware Repair/Install (troubleshooting) It can be memory (RAM), video card, sound card, modem, router, switch, monitor, motherboard, etc. The list can go on. * Software Install/Repair (troubleshooting) There is so much software in the market. It's not even funny. Software can give you error after error, or just doesn't want to run at all. I've troubleshot a lot of the most commonly used software today. * Network Security Did you know that a percentage of people use WEP, or have no network security at all? What does this mean? Well, it means that in today's society, people are piggy-backing off other connections to download illegal material. Have you ever received a nice letter from your internet service provider? Well, I know plenty of people who have, and it's not fun. They'll turn your service off, and wait for you to call and complain. Don't hassle with them anymore then; you don't have to. Call me today, and I'll make sure that won't ever happen. * Virus, Spyware, and Malware Everyone has at least experienced it a few times in their lives, if not more. They can be a pain, not only for you as the user, but for a technician as well. Some can take an hour to be removed or even hours. Some techs would rather re-install your OS, then fix the problem; not me! Reformatting a machine is a last resort, and it isn't always the best. My services list can go on and on. I've been messing with computers since I was little, and I had progressed further with my skills the older I got. I also design professional websites and offer custom-programming services. If you were to need any professional references, please don't hesitate to ask! Call today to schedule an appointment!

Top notch 100 percent professional service! Friendly, super fast and knowledgeable. Super fast, super friendly, super reasonable, super professional, super great fix for my little laptop. All around super.... I refuse to use another adjective. The internal fan of my laptop stopped running and was leading my computer to shut down with an imminent mother board melt possible. Rob gave me a fair price for labor and parts and my computer was completed in about four or five business days. Not only that, but he stands by his work and has the customer service to prove it. Rob's attitude is extremely friendly and you can tell that he really knows what he's doing and is willing to help. I have now found a trustworthy and awesome computer repair shop for my family and I in the future. Thanks Rob for all your help!!

My laptop screen started flickering on and off and I took it to Texperience to have it looked at. Jayson was able to identify the problem as a video cable that had shorted, along with a part of my motherboard that was affected as well. He quickly got back to me with his recommendations and worked with me to find parts that were within my budget. No overhead or outrageous charges, he ordered and replaced the broken parts and got it back to me within a couple days. I thought a motherboard would be a difficult fix but they handled it with ease, and kept me in the loop the whole time. He also ran a tune up to make sure everything was running at it's best, and since then I haven't had a single issue. I think it actually runs better now than when it was new! Fantastic service, really affordable, and overall a good experience. I'd recommend them for any computer work you need.

Mr. Alves serviced 2 desktop PC's in our home offices on May 4th and 8th. We had some malware or virus that was interfering with IE working correctly and one PC needed various updates and Windows reloaded from scratch. Work took 7.5 hours over 2 visits, he was prompt, courteous, friendly and accommodating to our work/personal schedules. We were very happy with the work done and our PCs are working faster and more efficient which is very important to us as we work from home offices 24/7. I would call him again and highly recommend him for computer repair.
