Having never had a laptop go down before due to a hard drive crash, I had no idea where to take it for repair. I debated between a certified HP repair center versus a computer expert working out of his home. I opted to give it to Chris Becker after reading the awesome online reviews about him and his work. Chris replaced my hard disk with a Solid State Drive, transferred all of my personal files to the SSD and upgraded my operating system to Windows 10. Many of the application files, however, were wiped out in the crash but he tried many different ways to transfer them as well. In the end, I received back a lightning fast computer which seems brand new to me. Chris is very thorough in his work. He pays great attention to detail and the quality of his work is awesome. His knowledge of computers is better than anyone I've met before. He's very professional and focused and did a good job of explaining what he was doing to my computer during the few days he had it. The cost of the repair and upgrade was surprisingly within my budget and I am extremely happy with how my laptop operates now. Chris will be my go-to guy for all of my computer work from now on. If you have a computer problem, no matter what kind, give it to Chris and you'll be very glad you did in the end!
We contacted Tom because our external hard drive was broken. Tom did a great job : he was very reactive, gave us a lot of advices for the short term but also for long term solutions. He took the time to explain us in details what went wrong with our external hard drive. I really recommand to hire Tom, we will contact Tom again in the future if we have another issue! Thank you so much Tom!!
Installed new hard drive and did a clean install on my Mac. Very friendly and accommodating - everything appears to be working well. Was patient with my "non techie" questions. I recommend Boyed's.
Experienced intermittent issues with my desktop computer. Because I couldn't use the computer to research for solutions, I asked DNA Computers to perform a diagnostic test. I was greeted upon entering the store and they were able to take my computer. They advertise they are able to do a 1-day turnaround on diagnostics but it took a week. I don't think this was a negative as I wasn't in a rush to get my computer back and they informed me they were backed up which is a good problem to have. The staff was friendly and followed up with me regarding the issues with my computer and I found the price to be reasonable. I would seek their help again!
I first called a few years ago David when my hard drive crashed. He came to my home and was able to restore data from both the hard drive and from the backup service I was using at the time to get me set up on a new laptop. He was very friendly and knowledgeable and made good suggestions. I signed up for his monthly maintenance service and plan to call him soon to assist with my transition to another laptop. I highly recommend David for any computer service!
Geoff has been great to work with. I had an external hard drive crash which had a lot of family pictures and memories on it. Geoff was honest with me about what may or may not be recovered. He was excellent at keeping me updated through the recovery of my files. He was able to recover everything that was important to me and was even able to recover it in my file structure. His pricing for all of this was more than fair and generous. I would highly recommend him to everyone.
We tried to retrieve data from a hard drive but unfortunately the drive was too damaged due to hardware malfunction
