I recently hired V-tecprostop to repair my desktop business computer. Werter gave me an extremely accurate diagnosis by phone and took the time to explain what he was going to do. In addition to the repair he made some valuable suggestions on ways to improve the performance. When he came to my home the repair went smoothly, and his work greatly increased the speed and stability of the machine. I’ve used big box repair companies in the past, with unsatisfactory results. Werter gave me a terrific price and great service so I will definitely go back to V-tecprostop for all of my future computer issues.

When I contacted the technician, I was blown away by his professionalism. After listing all the issues I had with the pc to him, he was able to diagnose the problem, which was a failed SSD, and not only did we lay out a plan to go from there, he even suggested I check my computer's warranties first before going forward. Once I looked into the warranties, I fully decided to go with the repairs with this technician. Not only did he replace the SSD with a far more reliable one, but also helped with the installation of the vital software and of course the OS for the pc since the old SSD had the OS on it. His knowledge of anything and everything computer-related is astonishing and would definitely recommend for any repairs or advice.

After several Comcast “techs” came over and couldn’t fix why my computer wouldn’t reach the Internet, this guy figured out that I needed a new modem, got the modem, and the Internet was up and running. He really knows what he’s doing!

No internet connection over WiFi or a wired connection. In conjunction with Comcast Tier 1 support, after they were unable to access the router remotely the setup for a replacement router. Once the new router was in place all devices connected with zero issues and were able to access the internet. Also helped to fix multiple email and Apple ID issues that were preventing emails from coming in and devices from updating. Thank you for your feedback. We appreciate your Business.

New Custom PC build with transplanted CPU, RAM, GPU, and AIO, that wasn't powering up. Power supply not connected correctly. GPU power issues. Swapped AIO cooler for heat pipe cooler. Corrected airflow on case fans to get rid of negative dead air flow. Stripped out all old MOBO drivers/software and installed new ones. Benchmarked and then load tested for 8 hours with zero issues.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    Start with make and model of computer (PC or Mac) and a description of the problem. Assess what the goal of the service is. We will also make recommendations if any machine is not current on Operating System or Virus Protection as well as any other relevant recommendations.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    9 years of college and multiple certifications. 30+ years of experience in computer (PC's and Mac's) builds, repair/service, and maintenance for both commercial and residential clients. Also do commercial structured wiring.
