I just thought I would suggest a few things to people looking to have their pc's repaired. Remember, OfficeMax is an office supply store an they have to outsource their pc repair. Remember, "Office" Max. They are a retail outlet, not a repair shop. It's no different than Geek Squad. Geek Squad is inside Best Buy stores for the Main purpose of selling....there's that word again "Retail". These plces can claim to fix things but in reality, it's a hit or miss situation in getting your PC Repaired. You might find one person that truly knows how to fix a computer, but remember, both of these places are prepared to get you to purchase i.e. another hard drive, more memory, etc. That's the sole purpose. You need to be a better consumer with your computers and there are many ways you can kee your computers running for years without the need for a "tech" person. If you watch what you are doing and protect youself with the most minor of things.....there's no need for high prices paid to a tech person. I know this because each individual's computer I fix, I tell them the things they need to keep their computers running. I faithfully explain in detail wat they need to do each month to keep their computers running. When a computer goes down, remember four things, hard drive, memory, power supply or motherboard. That's it and the motherboard is the most expensive. Power supplies, memory and hard drives are easy fixes and I teach all of my customers how to do this. It's not as freightening as you think. As a consumer, take a moment and become familiar with your computer. You don't have to be a "Geek Squad" to keep your computer running.
