Bring the computer to our shop and we will do a full diagnostic on the machine. Then, we’ll consider your uses of the machine, its age, the condition and the programs installed on the system. Sometimes a machine can be fixed but really isn’t worth the cost and effort. In those cases we will help you transition into a new machine.
What is a computer diagnostic?

Your total cost will be $99 (not $99 + $20).
