    Aaron built a custom PC for myself. He gave me suggestions along the way for certain components and everything worked great right out of the box. Very fast turn around time and always quick to answer questions. Definitely recommend him to others and will be a repeat customer in the future.

    Quite out of the blue and with not warning, I was not able to access any of my banking and financial sites. I was concerned about a fraud attempt on my accounts and needed immediate assistance and a good service rate. Aaron responded immediately and within a short time, I was active once again with all of my accounts. He diagnosed the problem and made sure that all was clean and clear by running not one but three different scans. Aaron is a consummate professional and a gem to work with.

    I had a laptop that was mangled by a 3 year old and while it was still in working order the screen was separated from the keyboard hanging by a wire. It was fixed perfectly by a consummate professional, very quickly at a very reasonable price. I would definitely refer, recommend and rehire! Thanks again!

    My grandson's IPad was completely DEAD. No response to anything.No-one was able to fix it.His parents relegated it to the trash, which to me was unacceptable. Thank God I found Aaron on Thumbtack. He knew exactly what the problem was immediately (LCD). I kept thinking he was going to tell me it was unfixable, but he had it repaired within days ( he had to order the part). It works perfectly. Aaron kept in touch with me and was very flexible, even delivered the IPad to my house personally, and in the pouring rain. All I paid was his fixer's fee ($45) and the cost of the part. Honestly, I am amazed at the work done and the cost. I still can't believe it!!!! Most highly reccommended.

    Aaron responded very quickly with a reasonable quote and he was also very quick to get the work done. I originally wanted to have the computer professionally cleaned due to the apparent white dust in the loudspeaker area. Aaron did not quite clean that area, but he certainly had done a good job cleaning the keys and other areas inside the computer. My keyboards feel much more responsive now. That was what I did not expect at first. Thanks so much. Aaron also took the trouble of returning my computer late on a Friday night. 5-star recommendation for his professionalism and courtesy.

    Aaron was Excellent, went way out of his way to make sure everything on my computer was back up and working after a blue screen event. HE SAVED ALL OF MY DATA and then on my request updated my computer system and it now runs better than any new one could . Thank you Aaron for all your help.

    I had a defective ipad screen which was not responding to the touch. The apple store said it had to be replaced altogether which was around $250. Aaron inspected the device and quoted me much less than apple and got the device working in less than $50. I must say he is a great guy and very efficient in his work. Greatly recommend Aaron for all your electronic repairs.. Thanks Kranthi

    Aaron was very prompt and ready to help. He found the proper replacement part for my laptop online and when it arrived, my laptop was finished and back in my hands the next day. He did a great job and is very affordable, I will use his service again for sure!

    Aaron was INCREDIBLY helpful. I gave him a very vague and confusing description of what was wrong with my laptop because I had trouble explaining it. He had no problem understanding what I needed before he even saw my laptop. (Basically I broke my screen connection from dropping it and he got me a new bottom plastic case. He did scans and updates to things as well.) Once he starting working on my laptop he clearly explained to me what it needed and told me how he was going to make it happen. He really cares about making sure the customer is happy. He went above and beyond to even make some changes I hadn't asked for or even thought to look into. He had my laptop back to me in a short amount of time even after ordering a part I needed. I was VERY impressed and I plan to call him first if I happen to have any computer issues ever again. Thank you so much Aaron!!
  • Vivian S. Jul 17, 2014
    Working with Aaron is like working with a friend - he is fun, patient and sincerely interested in finding solutions. He helped me with a new computer I was not familiar with. It was slow, and he figured out the problem. He also helped set up some accounts, and answered all my (many) questions. It was a very educational, productive and satisfying experience. I'd recommend Aaron anytime!

    A2 Computer Repair is awesome and was able to salvage what I was told by best Buy’s Geek Squad to be a damaged laptop. I took my 2 year old laptop into Best Buy for the Geek Squad to look at. I was told that my laptop’s hard drive was no longer functioning and that I would have to get a new computer because they could not get the hard drive to spin. I also was told I had lost all my music and precious files. They quoted me a price of about 400 bucks to “fix” my laptop and gave me the option to buy one new at Best Buy. Not being very familiar with computers, I took their advice. I paid $199.00 for them to give me that diagnosis, bought a new laptop, and paid them an additional $99 bucks to salvage some of my files and apply them to my new laptop. I had given up hope on my previous laptop until I brought my laptop to Aaron at A2 Computer Repair who was not only able to reinstate my laptop’s life but allow me access to the files that I had been told by the Geek Squad were not possible to save. I now have two working laptops at home and will not make the same mistake twice when I have computer issues by allowing Geek Squad to be my only solution. A2 could have saved me tons of money and time if I had just gone there first

    Helped me fix and figure out my external hard drive. Also helped me figure out how to transfer back up i-phone pictures in a particular way i needed. Knows what he is doing and is very helpful resolving problems with the computer. He is also very easy going, friendly, and easy to work with. Very swift with coming up with solutions and checks to be sure things are going right. On time, quality work, follows through, and cares to do excellent work for whoever he works with.

    A2 Computer Repair was able to decrease the boot time by 50% on our aging Vista machine which was a great improvement long overdue. Service was prompt, courteous, and professional. This would have cost at least $200 at your local computer superstore, we saved a lot and did not have to endure a sales pitch along with it. Highly recommended to breathe some new life in to your computers and make using them enjoyable again!

    A2 Computer Repair- within 24 hours Aaron (the owner) met me at my request in the middle of the night, and met me again in the middle of the night against the repair time, our schedules, and him genuinely caring about a strangers/customers deadline. Above and beyond, and a talented/skilled computer man. (I'd really messed it up, a lil of good info, just enough to get you in trouble) All w/in 24 hrs.... props A2 Computer Repair!

Q&A

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I don't think I will ever stop myself from learning new things. I am always researching and teaching myself in many areas, even outside of computers.
How did you get started doing this type of work?
While in high school I developed a strong interest in computers, so I went down the path of the PC. I worked at CompUSA, then at an IT help desk. Now I am the IT Manager at a logistics company. I enjoy helping people and working with computers so I started my own side business to help people with their computer needs.
What types of customers have you worked with?
The problem that people come to me the most about would be that their computer is running too slowly and that they want me to speed it up for them. Usually this can be done with software changes alone but sometimes it requires a hardware purchase.
Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?
On a Saturday I had a customer who could not boot into her windows operating system, and she needed the computer back by Monday for school. I was able to get it working and back to her before she needed it. This all happened within 24 hours.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
It really is hard to pick "the right one" when it comes to repairing a computer. If a person or company feels right then likely it is, so go for it. If a person or company is not willing to work with you then don't do it.
What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
I am genuine and really wish people that they have the best in life. Computers can be a huge drag if they are not working properly or they are not performing optimally. One way for me to make life easier for people is to get their computer equipment running correctly.
