You might need a nerd if…

  • Your desktop computer is slower than usual
  • You are unable to connect to the internet with your desktop
  • Advertisements are appearing on your screen
  • You see the “Blue Screen of Death” regularly
  • Your desktop computer overheats regularly
  • You hear beeping from your desktop computer

Desktop computers remain a frugal option for those who need powerful computing in their home. Desktops offer the ability to stay current by replacing pieces of hardware within. By upgrading your hardware, your computer will function as well as a newer model would, but for a much cheaper price. The Nerds at Nerds on Call can appreciate the usefulness of a desktop, which is why we offer various types of services, repairs, and replacements for desktop computers and their parts. Our Nerds can also help you pick out your new computer when you think it is finally time for an upgrade.

Do I still need a desktop?

If you just browse the web, send email, edit documents and photos, and maybe do your taxes, you don’t need a desktop. Laptops and smartphones can all do these basic tasks now. If you do more complicated tasks like editing video or crunching statistics, consider staying with a powerful machine.
