    My computer would not open, I called and took it over to Capital Computer around 10am and had it fixed and back home by 4pm. The computer works great now and it was a very reasonably priced fix. Thanks so much to Daniel and his crew. Great customer service and great work!

    Another excellent repair and outstanding service for the client!
    Daniel was great. I started my laptop up early on Sunday morning and screen said "fan malfunction". I had a project due on Monday and was frantically looking for a place that could repair my fan so I could complete my project . I connected with Thumbtack and requested computer repair. I received a response from Daniel shortly thereafter. I explained my issue and Daniel let me know he would get the part for me and have the laptop back to me by end of business on Monday, but he didn't have the part on hand. After many emails between myself and Daniel on his day off throughout Sunday , we scheduled dropping the laptop off with him on early Monday morning. He made a special trip (it actually was two trips to the parts house, because the first fan had some damage) to accommodate my needs. He and his team went out of their way to get the laptop repaired, cleaned Malware off, copied data from a failing disk drive on a desktop I brought in, set up tools to maintain the laptop and went through all that was done and how to keep it working well. You don't get that kind of service at most places and is why I gave him 5 stars. I would go to him again and have recommended him already to my neighbor. You owe it to yourself to try his service. I think this not only shows what quality of companies belong to Thumbtack, but the ethics of Daniel's company.

    Just when I thought I had forever lost personal pictures and videos due to laptop and USB malfunction, Daniel came to the rescue. He not only recovered ALL my files, but also gave me valuable advice on storage and backup solutions for the future. Had I known Daniel before, I would have brought my computer to him, instead of having a costly fix by “professionals” who didn’t do a good job. Daniel is the most honest, knowledgeable and friendly computer repair guy I’ve ever known. Capital Computer’s got another happy customer! Great service, fast delivery and reasonable price. Thank you!

    Daniel Socia and his partner Daniel, went far beyond what any other computer technician would have done for me. He installed a new Windows 10 computer. I was told by other geeks that my hp Vista was dying. But I did not like the 10 version at all. So he offered to convert my 8 year old computer to Windows 7 to work practically like a new one. That he did with 100% satisfaction. He did the same for my wife's computer. The cost for both computers was far less that the cost of the new one, which I got a store refund for. Furthermore, they consider me as a regular customer for as long as needed. They have such a high level of competency and kindness. You absolutely cannot go wrong with Capital Computer. Thanks to Daniel and Capital Computer.

    My laptop was broken due to myself dropping it recently. I was under the impression that it was completely unfixable because the computer would turn on however the visual display would not work, internally and externally on a visual display. However, they were able to fix my problem and clan my laptop at the base rate. I really appreciate it!

    They isolated the problem on my wife's laptop, resolved the issue in a timely manner and for a reasonable price, despite having to deal with significant family issues. As it happened, we could have chosen to spend nearly double the money, but they encouraged us to try our laptop with less memory than originally installed, as they felt it would be more than sufficient for our needs. No pressure to upgrade, whatsoever. Big thumbs up!

    I was in a complete panic when my computer crashed just a few days before I had major papers and a class due for my online university. I needed my computer repaired and fast! All of the places I called said it would be at least several days before they could even look at it to tell me what was wrong with it. I then called Capital Computers and Daniel told me he was going to take on the challenge..I am so blessed that he did! Not only did they diagnose and repair but they also installed virus protection, cleaned up the computer, sped up the computer and freed up space. The most amazing part.. Daniel did it all within THE SAME DAY!!!!!!!!!!! and the price was WAAAYYY better than any other quotes I received! Capital Computer was an answer to my prayers!!! I will recommend them to everyone I know (and some I don't) Thank you Daniel and Connie for all your help!

    After a frustrating night trying to fix my Mac laptop myself from a horrible virus and an Internet hack, I was ready to just destroy the darn thing. I sent a message to Capital Computers, and they contacted me back early the next morning. I left my phone number, and they called me later that day to assure me that my laptop was fixable, and it would be ready by the next day. Not only did they add antivirus protection software, they explained how to use them. I expected to have to pay well over $200, but I was happy to say they only charged me $75. It's not often when you can leave from a place and feel like you did not pay enough.

Daniel and team were able to recover everything and get them up and running better than new! Don't trust just anybody with your memories and data, only the best professionals around! They picked up my systems and brought them back and hooked them back up to ensure everything was working properly. My son even had high tech gaming keyboard and mouse which requires using the proper USB port which they even labeled. They establish a baseline and give you the tools and knowledge to maintain your baseline. I'm definitely a believer in their expertise, professional, courteous, and reasonable services.
