Provide 1 Hour Computer Service


70 simbi per session

I will do one of the following forms of computer service.

- troubleshoot and if possible repair your desktop or laptop computer. Hardware problems are fixed by replacing broken parts. I will confirm any part replacement with your prior to ordering it as you would pay for it.

- retrieve data from a crashed hard drive or crashed computer. There are limits to what I can do but I did retrieve data and do repair full time for two years. I still have most of my tools from that.

- cleanup a computer from viruses or malware. Typically, the best solution is to reinstall the OS and that is something I can take care of too.

Training & Qualifications

I have spent my whole life providing free tech support to my friends and family. I worked in IT professionally for four years.

I have a BS in Computer Engineering. I have been a software engineer for the past 7 years.

I also have an MS in Math and am completing an MS in EE this year.

Availability & Preferences

Evenings and weekends to arrange to meet. To provide the best service, I need to take the computer home. That way I can spend the one hour time limit without including time spent waiting for the computer to run processes. For example - I won't include time spent starting up as time spent on the machine. Since I am at home, I will be able to multitask.

Trading Preference: I prefer exchanging services

I like bartering for services. I think trade is a great way to get stuff done. I know there are numerous bartering websites that use some form of virtual currency (like simbis here). Thought I'd ch...
