Local Chico Computer Repair

Our Chico Story

Our Chico computer repair story began in March of 2005.

Nerds On Call Computer Repair was working hard to spread our wings far and wide in Northern California. We were excited to expand our tech-support goodness to help even more people, and Chico felt like the perfect city to continue our journey. Chico was near enough to our previous two locations, but far enough away from them that we would be able to draw new customers, while efficiently covering a broad swath of Northern California with our computer repair flair.

If you remember Chico back in those days, computer repair was not as commonplace then as it is now. Nerds On Call Computer Repair was looking to tap into the enormous potential that the beautiful Chico college town had to offer. We were hoping to help students and residents alike with networking, data recovery, hardware issues, virus/malware removal, mac repair, and laptop repair. We are proud to report that these and many other computer repair services we still offer today.

When we opened our offices in March 2005, we rented an office just above Hulu’s BBQ. Before we had Google maps to navigate us wherever we needed to go, there was a very complicated process that our tech support handlers had to create to map the repair technicians to their destinations. Yes, it was all on paper! The handlers had to learn the ins and outs of all the new-to-them Chico neighborhoods. Skyway, East Park, and Park Avenue really threw them for a loop trying to navigate around the city!

We were lucky to have our trusty technician, Alex, help us immensely with spreading the buzz about the new computer repair services we offered in town. He walked around Summer Market with signs advertising Nerds On Call Computer Repair Chico, and taught basic computer training classes and photo editing to a group of Chico women as part of an effort to educate the Chico community. 

Soon, our business had expanded so much that we had outgrown our small office above Hulu’s. We were sad to leave the delicious BBQ smells behind, but moving to our current location on East Avenue B was the best thing for us!

Centrally located, we are happy our shop is always convenient to Chico and its surrounding communities. While our Nerds go to you – offering in-home and onsite computer repair and laptop repair service – we have many customers who prefer to bring their computers into the shop for service. In the heart of Chico, near Highway 99, we’re just a quick hop off of Highway 32, making even a jaunt from Orland uncomplicated.

We Nerds love to give back to our Chico community too! During the Christmas season of 2010, Nerds On Call Computer Repair 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 Computer Repair, enjoy visiting Bidwell Park and the Chico Museum – Sierra Nevada for when the kids aren’t with them.

Nerds On Call Computer Repair 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!

And don’t forget! 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.
