We do Computer Repair in Eagan. In your home or at our office.

Residential computer repair service is economically priced when it's done here at the office in Burnsville MN, just east of 35W on County road 42. We offer free pickup and delivery service for our seniors, veterans, active military families, and disabled customers within ten miles of the office. If travel exceeds ten miles, there is a small fee based on the distance. The most common complaints we hear from home users about their computers are windows errors that have to do with drivers and the persistent "My computer is SO slow!" If your windows system is slow, we offer remote help desk service that lets you stay at home while we share the screen of your computer in Eagan from our office and fix the problem right before your eyes. This saves time, gas, and money- which is why it will reduce your computer repair bill for anyone needing computer repair in Eagan. All you need is a functioning windows computer (even a slow one) and a broadband internet connection like DSL or Cable internet.

Wireless Internet setup and security

Residential wireless computer networking is among the most vulnerable of wireless networks. It's only because of misinformation or misunderstanding about how wireless security works. As a general rule, you should apply the highest level of wireless encryption that your equipment allows. Currently, the most common encryption types for home wireless networks are WEP, WPA and WPA2. If you're still using WEP, you should upgrade your router and wireless adapters on your computers to make your home network secure for banking and other financial or tax filing activities. Please do not use short passwords, that's another weak link in the security chain! Your passwords should be at least 8 characters in length, have one or more capital letters and one or more special characters. There are plenty of password generation websites out there, just use one if you have a hard time thinking of a password. Click, copy and paste the password in to a text file and print it out on your printer. Don't store your password on your computer where it could be stolen by malware or a virus! Remember- even though that big long wireless password is a pain to enter on each device, you only have to do it once and your computer will remember from then on.

Do you need help to set up a new computer?

New PC Setup is another service we offer. Don't want to mess with all the wires and cables, tie wraps, plugs and tucking everything in neatly behind the desk? We will come to your home or home office and perform a very neat and clean installation. We hide all wires we possibly can, use zip ties or velcro wraps to keep all cables secure and neatly tucked away under the desk or inside a hutch. A neat computer installation prevents the accidents down the road when someone's foot hits the power switch or unplugs cables. This is most popular with seniors who sometimes have pain or difficulty kneeling and crouching for extended periods of time. We also know that new name brand computers come with a lot of unnecessary programs. We can help explain what each program does and help you decide whether you need it or whether it's just wasting your drive space!

Why do you need a Computer Backup?

On site or Off Site Backup is such an important part of keeping your data safe. Call us and we can work with you to develop a detailed backup plan and help avoid unnecessary expenses later on for recovering lost data. Putting the plan in to action today will ensure all your critical data will not be lost at the time when you need it most. Data recovery (if you're unlucky) can be quite expensive. To prevent a big bill, you should set up an automatic cloud backup service. Your backups should be scheduled in the off hours (the wee hours of the morning) when you aren't using your computer so that it does not slow down all the fun you're having!
