SUMMARY: Replaced the hard drive, restored records and "tuned up" the system.
Outstanding! The hard drive on my wife's work computer had failed and would not boot. She was facing a loss of all her records. He replaced the hard drive, her poorly functioning keyboard and recovered her records. Then he proceeded to "tune up" the system. He explained every step along the way. If you have problems this is the man you need to call! Worth every penny!

SUMMARY: Desk top computer hard drive replacement and clean up
Dan was recommended to me by a friend. He answered the first time, while he was working, asked questions about my situation, confirmed the length of time I planned to keep the computer, recommended an SSD (Solid State Drive) to speed up the computer, set a time for the next day. Dan arrived on time, was cordial and engaging. He sat at my desk working on my desktop for just over 4 hours and NEVER took a break. He is a hard worker. Probably the best part is Dan told me what he was doing as he did it. He is a good teacher and meets you where you are in computer knowledge. Dan brought everything with him including two different SSDs for me to choose from. My desktop is an old bullet proof Dell Optiplex 980 that just had a sick hard drive. It turned out my computer had a LOT of junk on the hard drive and I did not need as much storage as I first thought. We were lucky because my hard drive had not failed and he was able to extract my data and programs and place them on the new SSD. When Dan left, my computer was up and running smoothly, and much faster. It turns out the hard drive is what slows down a computer, much more so than the processor. Dan's charge was about $100 per hour and the SSD hardware was $60. I was very pleased with Dan's work at a stressful time. He is my new IT guy!

SUMMARY: Get dead Win 10 computer working plus several other issues
Win 10 system died Thursday pm - Checked Angi and called Dan Friday morning to come fix it. Great response -- he came that afternoon. Was able to resolve the dead computer issue & computer functionality restored. Very happy about that. Then Dan addressed several "ankle biters" that were bothersome -- printer and networking issues. Could not get the networking issue resolved in the time available. Throughout, he provided a running commentary on what he was doing and why that was quite educational to a tech-savvy but sadly incapable guy like me. Cost was reasonable and I'll ask Dan to return for future issues.

Went smoothly and explained everything. Very pleased with his work.
20215 StarsThomas R.
SUMMARY: Reinstalling Windows operating system
Things went smooth as silk. Dan came to my house the same day I contacted him, and spent around 2 hours getting my home PC back up and running (I am typing on it now). He is knowledgeable, professional, prompt and reasonable in his rates. I also liked the fact that he was willing to answer my questions as he did his work, so a got a bit of education as well! 5 stars.

SUMMARY: Evaluating computer slowdown issues.
Dan responded promptly after I submitted my request. He asked for me to explain my issues. He very quickly assessed my issues, pointed me to his website which includes recommendations for minimum requirements, and I was able to see quickly what my issues were. Very helpful and knowledgeable. I will hire him for my next computer project!
20205 StarsKatarina V.
SUMMARY: He solved the issue I had with my laptop looping/not wanting to install windows that I absolutely could not figure out (as I am not very tech savvy lol).
It went great! Very polite and professional (bonus points as he was knowledgeable to all of the nerdy fandom decor we have along our walls 😂). He had already had suspicions on what was wrong beforehand and immediately was able to resolve my issue(s) while also informing and educating me on the steps he was taking and why. 10/10 would definitely hire again!!!
20205 StarsJim P.
SUMMARY: I had a printer problem.
Dan was an awesome person. When I described my problem, he actually took care of my issue over the phone and did not even charge me. As a result of his great service, he will now be my "go to" person for future computer problems. Thanks again Dan.
20205 StarsChase T.

20205 StarsJeff W.
SUMMARY: I needed a new keyboard installed in my laptop (I'm typing this on the new KB.)
Perfectly and professionally. Dan has done several jobs for me over the years flawlessly...and in the computer space, flawless is never found. This was by far his most complex for me, as it appears that Dell really does not believe their keyboard would ever need replacing. It required him to remove nearly every single component in the laptop just to get to the keyboard. I greatly appreciate how he teaches and instructs to help me understand the scope of the work he is doing, so I can better appreciate the task at hand, and how much time it will take to complete. In the end this was a three hour plus job that he only charged me 2.5 hours of labor. Everything is working perfectly, and his batting average is still perfect.

SUMMARY: He fixed my TV and computer problems today.
He is a great guy, is honest and prompt. He is also very efficient and is very knowledgeable. I was told I needed a new TV but he came in and fixed both the TV and computer. He didn't even come to look at the TV but when I told him about it, he said let me take a look at it. I would highly recommend him and I will definitely hire him again.

Email server choked on 59,000+ emails. It now works perfectly. This is at least the 4th time we have used Dan. He is prompt, courteous and very competent. His fees are reasonable. We highly recommend him. This job took him 2.5 hours to resolve.

SUMMARY: New computer setup and debugging
Dan was professional, knowledgeable, effective, accessible and accommodating. He accepted my hodgepodge computer skills, meeting me wherever I was, and got me set up right away. He explained enough for me to understand, but not too many details that I didn't need to know. Excellent service.
