I have always had a nack with computers, and became very familiar with them, and at a very young age. I was using the computer before most people knew that they were available to the public for any necessary purpose. I began using computers back in the days of DOS and BASIC. Not that either of the two are by any means obsolete, but they are not really in their prime anymore. I followed the growth of the computer and the operating system. It became commonplace for people to bring their computers to me whenever they had problems, and needed them fixed. Computer Boot Up was born.
We work on everything from DOS and Windows to Linux and Macintosh. We will always attempt repairs first, with data-recovery being the first thing on our minds. If we are unable to repair, We always provide a hard copy on DVD or USB of any files retrieved. Rebuilding is unfortunately often times necessary due to the violent nature of some of the modern virus and hacker attacks in existence today. See more about Viruses and how you can actively try to thwart them in the Security section. There are also useful downloads available in the Support section.
We stand behind our work, and most of our replacement parts have 2 year warranties. We don't charge some crazy fee just for handing us the computer, like some of the "big guys" do. We will always charge you by the job at hand, and not by the hour! This guarantees you the best price for your service!
Even though we are not a large company and do not have the numbers of staff members as the large companies, we are still more than happy to answer tech-support type questions via email or over the phone(phone support for current customers only).
For all tech-support related questions, please Email Us, and put: TECH-SUPPORT-CBU-WEB-QUERY In the subject line of the message. You can copy and paste from above if you prefer.
We will be glad to try to answer your questions, but some issues are better dealt with by us. In those cases a price quote on fixing the problem will be given.
