Will a Solid State Drive Speed up my computer?
Absolutely!! Most people experience boot up times from power on to desktop in 15 to 30 Seconds.
Will you tell me if my computer is worth repairing?
That’s one of the first things we discuss with you when you have a repair. Sometimes it’s just economically unfeasible to repair some computers, and we’ll let you know if that’s the case.
I accidentally dropped or otherwise damaged my computer. Now it’s having problems. Can it be repaired?
It may be possible to repair it, but we will have to diagnose it and assess the issue(s) involved. We can also use as much information as we can get about what caused the damage and how the computer is acting now. Don’t use your computer if it’s damaged as that may make the damage worse.
Can you provide a breakdown of the services included in ComputeRx's monthly or annual packages?
