Screen Repair Services
Most of the time, if your desktop monitor begins to fail the best solution is simply to replace it. It’s not so simple when it comes to laptop screens. Because the computer and display are integrated, when a laptop display develops problems, many people assume their only course of action is to buy a new laptop.
Not so! Our Portland based nerds have the skills, equipment and experience to perform complete laptop screen replacements for a wide range of makes and models.
A screen replacement will typically cost just a small fraction of what you’ll pay for a new laptop. If your laptop display is cracked, flickering, filled with dead pixels or blurry and difficult to read, give us a call. We’ll be happy to give you a free no obligation quote for a full screen replacement.
Viruses, Malware, Spyware, Adware and Ransomware Removal
A decade ago when we started doing computer repairs in Portland, viruses weren’t really that big a deal. Sure, we cleaned our fair share of virus infections, but they weren’t especially serious. Decent virus protection software was really all you needed for reliable protection. It’s not like that now. Malware isn’t just more common. It’s also more dangerous, harder to detect and much more complex to prevent.
Nerds On Call has long been a Portland authority on malware removal. Check out one of our news segments here. A big part of why we’re so trusted in malware removal is that we offer a complete malware protection solution. In other words, we don’t just get rid of your malware. We make sure it stays gone.
If your computer begins to display odd or threatening messages, if it repeatedly crashes or slows down to a crawl, there’s a very good chance your computer may be infected with malware. When that happens, give us a call.
We’ll completely eradicate the malware infection wherever it is hiding (and believe us, malware has become very good at hiding, even from leading virus protection software). Then we’ll teach you pro-level virus protection tips. We can even shield your computer with ongoing live protection managed by our team of malware security experts. It’s the ultimate option for total peace of mind.
Hardware Repair and Installation
A lot of people settle for a Windows PC or Mac which just “kind of works.” Maybe it’s a bit old and not fast enough to handle current software. Or perhaps it’s developed one or more hardware problems which make it frustrating to use.
There’s no need to put up with that!
Unlike your typical computer store, Nerds On Call offers a free diagnostic service. This eliminates all the guesswork in upgrading your computer. We’ll tell you precisely what’s going wrong with your tech and give you straight up advice on how to fix it. Better yet, we’ll come to your home to do it!

Our Portland Oregon Story
In 2009, Nerds On Call was looking for another opportunity to expand our business and offer computer repair in more locations. We wanted to find a city that fit our interests and one that we could help the greatest number of people in. We had heard that the dream of the 90’s was alive and well in Portland – the 1890’s in fact. We couldn't wait to establish Nerds On Call in Portland.
Being the retro enthusiasts that we Nerds are, we eagerly jumped on the opportunity to set up shop in the city! Nerds On Call entered Portland in 2009, the same year as another Oregon location. It was our third store that we had opened in Oregon. Hoping to blanket the beaver state in computer repair locations, we thought Portland would be the perfect fit. It’s a giant city with plenty of interesting people – and connected, computer-using people at that.
The Portland Nerds On Call store also provides services to the sister city of Vancouver. Our Nerds are mobile and not just stuck in a store, so we are able to go just about anywhere in the area to fix computers! One of our proudest accomplishments in the city is the giant sign for Nerds On Call commuters can see while driving on the I-5 every day!
To date, Portland is the largest city that Nerds On Call services.
Ryan and Andrea Eldridge, the founders of Nerds On Call, love to visit Portland. When they’re not out fixing computers, they enjoy taking their kids to the children’s museum and the Portland zoo. In fact they had become local celebrities, as for over six months, Andrea Eldridge appeared on More Good Morning Oregon regularly to provide helpful technology tips thatl ocal residents could use! While she spends more of her time being a mother now than appearing on television, her tech advice can still be found on the Nerd blog.
Don’t worry, we still have tech expert, Josh Garnick, one of our repair specialists in Portland. He has even appeared on the news as well. During the mid-2012 DNS changer computer virus epidemic, he was invited to speak on the subject on KVAL and let computer users know some tips about the possibilities that the virus presented. You can find the video and related article here.
Thanks for being a part of everything that Nerds On Call has been up to in Portland for the past three years! We hope we’ve provided you all with quality and courteous customer service. Feel free to stop by anytime or give us a call – we’re always happy to hear from you, even if it’s just to chat!
