Custom PC Repairs

Custom PC Repairs

Yes, we offer custom PC repairs. We can build a custom PC for you or we can fix yours if it’s not functioning properly. There’s an added layer of complications working on a custom built PC, but we’ve got the know-how and experience to help.

Fan Replacement

Fan Replacement

Desktops typically have multiple fans to keep airflow circulating through your PC. If one or more of those fans get clogged with dust, your machine may start overheating, running slow, or stop turning on all together. A fan replacement can help, so stop by today for a repair quote!

Hard Drive Replacement 

Hard Drive Replacement

Hard drive replacements are a very common problem with computers and a service we provide at all our locations. We can recover the data from your bad hard drive, and install a new hard drive in your desktop. We can install a standard hard disk drive, or give you options for a much faster solid state drive (SSD). Give us a call today and we can go over your options for a hard drive replacement in your desktop.

Motherboard Replacement 

Motherboard Replacement

We offer motherboard replacements on PC desktops to fix a variety of problems. Whether you have a dead motherboard, or your board got fried by a lightning strike, we can help! We’ll take a look at which motherboard is in your desktop and give you a quote to replace it for you.

Power Supply Replacement

Power Supply Replacement

If your desktop won’t turn on, there’s a good change it needs a power supply replacement. It could also have a bad motherboard, but we’d be happy to test your computer for you and provide a quote. We typically stock desktop power supplies to get your repair turned around quickly and get your machine back up and running!

Screen Replacement (AIOs)      

Screen Replacement

We replace screens on All-in-One (AIO) desktops. Sometimes these screens are just the glass digitizer, and other times the LCD and glass come fused as a single assembly. Regardless, we can track down the part and give you a price quote for the

SSD Upgrade    

SSD Upgrade

Solid State Drives (SSDs) are FAST. It’s the difference between a hang glider and a jet engine. We can upgrade your computer hard drive to an SSD and you’ll be wishing you had called us sooner. Seriously, we spend most of our day fixing broken computers so we always love the chance to SIGNFICANTLY upgrade the speed of someone’s computer by switching to an SSD.

Windows Reinstall

Windows Reinstall

Windows reinstalls are the most common thing we do. If your computer isn’t booting into Windows or Windows is crashing, we can factory restore it for you. We’ll backup your pictures, music, documents, etc., reinstall a clean version of Windows, and then put your information back onto the machine. We’ll also do things like configure the machine’s driver, install common problems, run updates, etc. to make sure it’s ready for you when you pick up!

...Something else?

Something Else?

We offer a variety of other repair services on desktop PCs. If you don’t see the service you’re looking for – give us a call!

Cracked Screen (AIOs)           

Cracked Screen

If your PC desktop has a cracked screen, you probably have an All-in-One. And yes, we replace cracked screens on All-in-one (AIO) machines! We don’t often stock the part since these screens are very specific, but we can order a replacement for you. Stop by today and we’d be happy to help.

Custom PC Issues

Custom PC Issues

Custom PCs are great until they have problems. Between component compatibility issues, hardware failures, and overclocking nightmares – we’ve seen it all. If your custom PC isn’t functioning properly, bring it in and we’d be happy to help you with it. We can’t always offer free diagnostics on a custom PC, but we’ll always give you a price before fixing your device. And if you proceed with a repair, the diagnostic is always included.

Doesn\'t Boot Into Windows   

Doesn't Boot Into Windows

If you have a desktop that doesn’t boot into Windows, we’ll test your hard drive and then take a look at the software. Most of the time we’ll need to backup your data and perform a factory restore, and then transfer your data back onto your machine. However, sometimes these issues can be fixed by replacing the RAM or GPU as well, so we’ll look at that for you. A lot of things can cause a PC desktop to stop booting, but we can troubleshoot your PC and give you a free quote.

Doesn\'t Turn On

Doesn't Turn On

If your desktop doesn’t turn on, it’s likely to be either the power supply or the motherboard. Sure, it could also be the RAM (maybe 5-8% of the time) or another component (like the GPU), but the power supply or motherboard are much more likely culprits. We offer free diagnostics so we’ll take a look at your machine, determine the underlying cause of the power problem, and get you fixed and on your way.

It\'s Too Slow            

It's Too Slow

A slow desktop makes a good boat anchor. Luckily there’s a lot we can do to speed up your PC. Factory reinstalls (yes we’ll save your data first) or SSD Upgrades are great ways to have a real and significant improvement in your computer’s speed. If you aren’t sure what an SSD is, you should stop by or call us immediately. They’re so fast; they’ll change your life.

Screen is Black

Screen Is Black

If your desktop is only showing a black screen, a number of things could be wrong. First of all, it could be a bad monitor or video cable. More likely though, is a bad GPU, motherboard, or power supply. We’ll test your computer to see if its booting or not, and go from there. We offer free diagnostics so we can let you know what the problem is and how much it’ll cost to fix before you commit to a repair!

Turns off by Itself

Turns Off By Itself

If your desktop is turning off by itself, it’s probably not because it’s being lazy. It’s probably overheating. A CPU that starts overheating will turn itself off to prevent it from permanently damaging itself. This is typically fixed by fan cleanings or replacements, and maybe a heat sink replacement. We can take a look at your desktop and determine what needs to be done to get you back in business!

Viruses 

Viruses

This problem is fairly straightforward. Got viruses? We'll remove them. Most of the time viruses can simply be removed, but other times they've ingrained themselves so deep in the system that we'll have to do a software reinstall. Don't worry, we'll save you data and let you know first if this is necessary.

Frequently Asked Questions

If we can’t fix it, you don’t pay. It’s that simple!

For hardware repairs, we keep a lot of parts in stock but since there are so many different types of PC desktops out there, we might need to order a part.  If that’s the case, we typically get parts within 24-48 hours!

Absolutely. We offer 90 day warranties on all of our standard repairs (if we have to buy custom parts, those parts may have a different warranty period). If anything goes wrong after 90 days, it’s unlikely to be due to our repair but you’re welcome to bring it by anyway. We’re usually able to help, especially if it was related to the repair we performed.

Of course not!  We can take it apart and put it back together for you.  We have the tools and expertise to do it quickly and efficiently, don’t worry about it!

That depends – if you’d rather not bring it in (understandably) we can try to diagnose it and give you an estimate over the phone.  Sometimes we can’t because we don’t want to misquote you, and then we might need to see it in-person.

It’s ALWAYS a good idea to backup your data before a repair (and we suggest you do). Even Apple advises backing up your data before any repair. However, it’s extremely unlikely you’ll lose any data during the repair.

I run most of my small business on my computer and phone. When my computer completely locked up and wouldn't boot, they determined within seconds that the hard drive was shot and needed to be replaced. By that afternoon I had a new hard drive with all my data properly migrated and now it's working better than when I pulled it out of the box. They did a great job.

I went in for a phone battery replacement. Both employees were very kind and professional, and they even did a price match. It’s nice to have a place that does exceptional work the first time. I’ll be a returning customer for sure!

These guys are phenomenal, brought in a computer that was crashing and in the same day they installed an SSD and got me back up and running. These guys had me back in business in no time. They explained the issue at hand thoroughly and now the laptop is 10x faster than it was. Time is priceless! Big thanks to the Computer Repair Doctor crew!

My 5 year old MacBook Air had really slowed down, getting that spinning wheel every time I tried to search the web. I took it to Computer Repair Doctor to see if there was anything that could be fixed or I would have to buy a new laptop. Cory checked it out on the spot. It was working fine in their shop and he told me he didn't see anything wrong with it and while he could try a few things (remove and reload stuff or something like that), he really didn't want to charge me for something that probably wasn't the issue. He suggested I check my network and internet provider first since it was working fine at their location. I did some simple googling about my wireless router and found one suggestion to change on the router and BAM! it totally fixed my problem. Thank you Cory for saving me lots of money on a new laptop or even a fix I didn't need. You are very honest. I recommend Cory at Computer Repair Doctor to get the honest story about what is wrong with your computer. Thanks again!
