The following charges bellow supersede labor costs.
Advanced Data Recovery: ALL file systems; $200 per hour. (No Exceptions)
Advanced Virus Detection: $50 per hour. We can not guarantee that all viruses will be
removed, however we will do everything we can to get your system up and running better,
faster and safer then before it was scanned for viruses. Although most users have anti virus
software installed on their system, we have found that about 99% of all computers worked on
are still infected. This is the most common reason for computer performance degradation.
Note that scanning a computer for viruses can sometimes take a long time.
We will not charge for more then 3 hours to do a full scan. However, if the time of the scan
looks like it will take more then three hours we may want to take the computer with us and
work on it at our workshop. In some other insistences it may also be necessary to take the
computer to our workshop for fixing.
Additional charges may apply.
We are based in Washington DC, However, I will travel to any part the USA.
I try to make myself available 24/7
excluding inclement weather, Christmas Day and New Years Day.
FYI: As you may, or may not know, there is an increasing trend of built in obsolescence
in the computer industry. For this reason we will not charge a customer more then the
replacement value of a computer system to repair or upgrade it. Please note that the customer is
responsible for all data backup prior to installing, repairing, or upgrading a computer system.
We will either setup a system for you to buy, or we can build one to your specifications and set
it up for you. Most setups do not take more then the two hour minimum, This does not include
installing software, that will cost extra (see above). A standard setup includes first time boot
of the pre-installed Operating System to setup the user account default settings, setup of
keyboard, mouse, monitor and printer (note: some all-in-one / printer / scanner / fax / systems
take longer to setup). Also note: If you have a custom built system, there needs to be an
Operating System installed. I will install and setup the Operating System for an extra fee
(see above) plus the cost of the Operating System itself. You can expect to pay about $300 for
a new copy of Microsoft Windows Vista Operating System. If you have a copy of Windows you
bought your self it must be a version that is still supported. Windows 2000/XP Home and Pro
will be supported until the year 2014. Windows 3.1/95/98/Me are no longer supported and we will
not install them. If however you already have one of these older versions installed we will work
with you. We would however strongly suggest that you upgrade your computer. If you choose an
open source OS (Linux) the cost will be much less. See Joe D'Angelo
's Page for a list of other Operating Systems he will work on. You can choose to have us build and
setup the system, or you can set it up yourself. We don't recommend this for most people.
You will most likely end up pulling out your hair and calling us or some other computer
All pricing and availability is subject to change without notice.
