Welcome to Do It Yourself Computer Help
So why your here. Your computer is broken.
All you need to do is get a report done and your computer is stopping you.
First things first,
I have been in the computer repair industry for 15 years now starting when I was 18 and went into the navy. The navy provided me the foundation, knowledge and passion I needed to get started.
While you are reading some of the fixes in my blog I will rate them from easy, medium, or hard.
Couple things I see in a lot of websites and blogs I never recommend trying on your own is editing the registry and opening the case to add or remove hardware. I will post fixes to various problems that require this but you will be performing these at your own risk.
This site is also not one I will bash the big boys like Geek Squad I worked for them for many years until i was hired as a field manager and learned that they are really sales people in a geek uniform... beware. I will also not bash the small shops, go on yelp and google them before hand make sure they have good reviews first. If you are in the Baltimore Maryland area and would like a review of a local computer shop let me know I will be happy to try them out and see how they are.
I will tell you never, ever, ever, never download those "Fix my pc now" programs. I was curious about them so i download 3 of the big ones you see on TV. Two of them were the exact same program with a different skin. I called the free tech support for them and after 2 hours they had me spending over $200 dollars and my pc would not be fixed. Do not waste your money.
Please visit my blog and have a look at some of the fixes I already have and please submit questions to me and I will post them. My Blog
