Our Chico Story

After Nerds On Call Computer Repair had spread our wings in Northern California, we started to really take off. The next location we were looking at expanding into was Chico, CA. The city is near our home base Northern California, but significantly far away enough that we would be able to draw in new customers and efficiently cover a broad swath of the North State in tech-support goodness.

In March 2005, we opened our first office for Nerds On Call Computer Repair in Chico. We offered the following repair services (and still do):

  • data recovery
  • virus removal
  • tech help
  • hardware fixes
  • mac repair
  • laptop repair

At the time, we rented an office above Hula’s BBQ.

Back in the days before we had a comprehensive database that the techs could access, we had to do all of the mapping through a very old and inconvenient process (paper maps).  When we moved into Chico, our handlers had to learn all sorts of new skills in order to navigate the Skyway, East Park, and Park avenues that really threw them for a loop as they started to get oriented with the city. Fortunately, we resolved that issue shortly!

For a while, a tech of ours named Alex would walk around the Summer Market with signs advertising Nerds On Call Computer Repair Chico, and also taught a photo editing and basic computer training class to a group of Chico women as part of an effort to help educate the community.

Eventually, the space above Hula’s BBQ, although filled with delicious smells, became too limiting and we moved around the corner to the location at which we are currently situated.

During the Christmas season of 2010, Nerds On Call in Chico held our Stuff the Bus Toy Drive. We gave a twenty-dollar gift card for our services to anyone who made a donation of a toy worth at least five dollars. All the donated toys went to the Chico Salvation Army for providing disadvantaged children with Christmas presents.

While visiting Chico on their frequent trips, Ryan and Andrea Eldridge, the founders of Nerds On Call, enjoy visiting Bidwell Park and the Chico Museum – Sierra Nevada for when the kids aren’t with them.

Nerds On Call has loved being in Chico for all these years and we hope to have many more good years in the beautiful city with the wonderful people! Some people have even called us the clinic for Chico computers!

Nerds On Call Computer Repair Chico CA also services the greater Chico area, including Willows, Vina, Tehama, Stirling City, Richvale, Paradise, Oroville, Orland, Nelson, Magalia, Hamilton City, Glenn, Gerber, Forest Ranch, Durham, Corning, and Artois.

In addition to having your computer or laptop fixed in our Chico shop or in your home, many repairs can be handled faster and for even less online.


Contact us to chat with a Nerd about the specific technical problem you’re experiencing, schedule an appointment, and/or get more details.

Of course! When you pay THAT much for a laptop or computer, you can’t trust it’s repair to your buddy or neighbor that “knows about computers.” Yet trekking it out to the Apple Store all the way from the Chico region is a headache and a half.


Luckily, we train our Nerds to be as proficient with Apple equipment and software as they are with Windows PCs. Give us a call today and let us know what Apple computer issue we can resolve for you.

Absolutely! Remember when you first saw you can have a computer that you can carry around. Cool, right? Wow, anyone else feeling their age right now? But we digress…


Laptops are becoming, if not already, the most common type of personal computing device. They are also scary when it comes to tuneups and fixes. Instead of one visible part that can be removed and replaced, everything is contained in this device. 


Our Chico techs have the skills to open that MacBook or HP and resolve all your laptop issues.

While computers usually look after themselves, occasionally things go wrong. When this happens, you might need a Nerd to run a complete diagnostic. Viruses can build to be a huge problem if not dealt with right away. You probably run into more computer virus issues more often than you think.


If your computer is running slower than usually or data is disappearing, then your virus problem may have reached the point where you may need a nerd’s help.


Nerds On Call Chico is here to make the problem go away. We’re fast, reliable and friendly. Contact us at 800-919-6373 or reach us through our contact form for virus removal & protection options.
