You might need a nerd if…

  • Your computer randomly crashes and you cannot duplicate the error
  • A feature of your computer has stopped working, especially one that uses a particular piece of hardware
  • You sometimes see the blue screen of death
  • The screen is black or doesn’t turn on
  • You hear strange sounds coming from the computer
  • The computer doesn’t boot up all the way
  • You cannot connect to the internet

The space inside of a desktop tower makes for easier hardware repairs and upgrades in comparison to a laptop. For Nerds on Call, desktop hardware repair and replacement is something our Nerds can do in their sleep. The size of the towers offer our Nerds more room to work, and make parts easily accessible so that they can be swapped out for new, upgraded hardware to get your machine running better than ever before. We can even send a Nerd to your house to perform some repairs right in front of you!
