The following are the top 15 common computer problems that we have been called out to this month.

1. The Computer Won’t Start

A computer that suddenly shuts off or has difficulty starting up could have a failing power supply. Check that the computer is plugged into the power point properly and, if that doesn’t work, test the power point with another working device to confirm whether or not there is adequate power. Call 845-820-9979

2. The Screen is Blank

If the computer is on but the screen is blank, there may be an issue with the connection between the computer and the screen. First, check to see if the monitor is plugged into a power point and that the connection between the monitor and computer hard drive is secure. If the problem is on a laptop, then you may need to get a professional to fix it as some of the internal wires may be worn. Call 845-820-9979

3. Abnormally Functioning Operating System or Software

If the operating system or other software is either unresponsive or is acting up, then try restarting your computer and run a virus scan. To avoid having this happen, install reliable anti-virus software. Call 845-820-9979

If your computer is slower than normal, you can often fix the problem simply by cleaning the hard disk of unwanted files. You can also install a firewall, anti-virus and anti-spyware tools, and schedule regular registry scans. External hard drives are great for storage solutions for overtaxed CPU’s, and will help your computer run faster. Call 845-820-9979

A lot of noise coming from your computer is generally a sign of either hardware malfunction or a noisy fan. Hard drives often make noise just before they fail, so you may want to back up information just in case, and fans are very easy to replace. Call 845-820-9979

To improve your Internet browser performance, you need to clear cookies and Internet temporary files frequently. In the Windows search bar, type ‘%temp%’ and hit enter to open the temporary files folder. Call 845-820-9979

Michael is a professional and a very good guy! I walked in with a dead pc that is used daily by my grandchild and very important to her. Michael gave it his full attention and even though it needed several parts replaced he had it fixed in well under an hour(it's a home-built gamer). I though it would cost a fortune but not with Michael. Absolutely great guy! I went to that location years ago and I can tell you that previous owner ... well lets just say I did not look forward to going. But now Michael has all my computer business! 5 stars is an understatement!

If you want first rate customer service and attention to detail plus very reasonable prices look no further than here. Michael is very knowledgeable and friendly and I found my experience with having him build me a beautiful kick arse gaming pc to be very enjoyable and informative. He built my new rig exactly to my specifications and didn't even bat an eye when I told him that I wanted a purple theme! What I got is a very very powerful yet clean ,simple and elegant machine that I am sure I will get many many years of enjoyment from. Her name is Lemuria and she puuuurrrrs! Thank you Michael for bringing her to life and making my gaming experience and the whole experience of building her and designing her so interesting and well worth it!

Went to BestBuy Geek Squad and got the normal incompetent answer of "there is nothing I can do for your laptop, get a new one". Luckily found this place and the owner was so helpful, and performed troubleshooting and provided a solution. HIGHLY RECOMMEND 5/5

I'm usually very picky with even leaving a review but Michael definitely deserves 5 stars. We've used him for several issues in the past, and every time he was able to bring our family's computers back to life at a reasonable expense and acceptable time frame.

If the jobs had required more work than initially expected, Michael at no point attempted to leverage that to his financial gain. It's generally rare to come across an individual or organization that performs a service honorably and is very open about the process as well.

We will continue to use his services and would highly recommend to anyone who is having trouble with their computer. I haven't even contemplated using anyone else.
