Temecula- Reliable Computer Repair?

Dec 8, 2010 4:12AM PST

Hello, I am new to this, and I hope what I am asking is appropriate. I have a Dell E510 computer that won't turn on. I'm a mom without any computer knowledge. I wondered if anyone could recommend a reliable computer repair person in our area, which is Temecula, CA. I am afraid to go just anywhere, as I had a bad experience with a local company earlier this year with my laptop. I thank anyone who may be able to guide me to a reliable repair shop or person.

I don't know about CA, but where I live, people who have used them say Staples is excellent for computer repair.
They also say their price is very reasonable.
Not sure you have Staples stores in Ca so you would have to look in the phone book.

This is your usual old Pentium 4 system. Now before you say you can't afford a system I suggest you look at FREECYCLE (see google) and join the list in your area.

Here I see working Pentium 4 systems show up once in a while with the cost being FREE.

Did you ever manage to solve your issue or replace the computer? I'm located in Temecula, CA and can help you if you have any questions. I do agree with the above poster though, it may be time to move on to another computer. Just make sure you don't get talked into something you don't need. Reply to this thread if you still need help! Happy
