For Geek For Hire, last week was all about installing new parts for our customers. Chris replaced (or added) parts on new and older computers. If you have a non-working part on your computer, don’t think you need to get a whole new computer just to get it to work!
- For example, one customer had a non-functioning keyboard on his laptop. Chris ordered a new keyboard from the manufacturer and installed it. Another option is to get an external keyboard – either wired or Bluetooth. Although your laptop is not quite as portable when you have to lug around a keyboard too!
- Another customer got a new desktop computer but it came without a DVD drive. Chris ordered a very high quality DVD drive for this customer. He took the desktop apart, put the Drive in the right place and securely attached it to the inside. Then he tested it to make sure it worked properly – both read and write functionalities. (I wonder what movie they watched!)
- A third customer needed more RAM which Chris was able to install.
- Another customer ordered a new soundbar and asked Chris to install it for them.
- Another customer woke up to a black screen. Chris determined the problem was the monitor and not something internal to the machine. A new monitor was ordered – problem solved! (Sometimes there is a problem with the video card inside the computer which causes the monitor to not work. Chris can replace those too.)
Other miracles Chris performed last week included bringing a MiniMac back from the dead, removing several hundred viruses from a MacBook Air, removing viruses from a Dell Windows 10 machine, and uninstalling Windows 10 and reinstalling Windows 7 on yet another machine.
