Building your own computers from scratch used to be a thing of the past, or so I thought. Yet in reality many people still do it. Some of those people are graphic designers or architects, but most of course are “Gamers”, who want to have powerful machines to be able to keep up with latest technology and enjoy themselves playing some of the coolest video games they have these days.
Most of the repair that we do in our shop are laptop repairs, but once in a blue moon we still get people who want to build their own PC’s and either don’t know how to do it, or in most cases they try to do it themselves, but either screw something up along the way, or can’t figure out how to make everything work properly. Then they bring it to us- “the experts”!
Cause in most cases everything goes pretty smoothly if you just follow directions and put things right. But that is not always the case. In some situations the new parts that come in are faulty and computer won’t work because of that.
But in most cases when there is some kind of hiccup with computer, it is because of user error. In most cases people damage the CPU socket by bending the pins, in some cases they plug in cables incorrectly, or in some they even order wrong parts and everything must be re-done from scratch.
In this computer custom computer build scenario, we had two cables that were shorting out the whole system. Which was tricky to identify, because no one would have thought it would be a SATA cable that shorted the whole computer from even turning on…. and just like saying goes- you learn something new every day- cause anything can happen, especially when it comes to computers.
So, next time you want to put together a custom pc build, feel free to contact us, if you want to save yourself some trouble and get it done right the first time. Especially if you are not feeling sure about doing it yourself.
For us it takes only couple hours to do it. Assuming we have correct parts. and we will test everything out and give you a properly working machine back in no time!

We often get a question if we do home or office calls. And the answer is- yes we do. However it all depends on circumstances. Because in some cases if the job requires lots of waiting time, like large transfers of data or operating system installations with file backup, I would rather have you bring the computer in. Simply because we can do it more smoothly in our computer store, rather than sitting and waiting for hours for some installation to finish.
And don’t get me wrong, I don’t mind sitting back and talking to you for couple hours, but I just like to be productive and do something else while I’m waiting for gigabytes of data to be transferred from one device to the other.
However in some cases we need to come out for onsite computer repair service and we do it gladly.
Just like yesterday, a lady called me from the office in Agoura Hills. Where we had to upgrade their pc and an iMac and fix some networking issues at their office. In this case we had to go to their office, because bringing devices to fix networking issues is simply not possible.
So I came and set up for the data to be copied over, then went back to my store to help couple other people and then came back to finish everything up a little later.
The point being here is we are flexible. We value your time, we value our time and we are good at finding solutions to solve your computer issues as smoothly as possible. We offer onsite PC and Imac repair service in Agoura hills, Thousand Oaks, Camarillo and surrounding areas!

If your iMac is running slow, you NEED to change your regular hard drive to a solid state disk (SSD). It will start running 10 times faster than when you first bought it new! Trust me on that one!!!!
This Asus laptop has already come in three times with the same charging problem and needed charging port repair(dc jack repair) once again.
If you were fixing computers for as long as i have, you would know that Asus brand was the most commonly known to have faulty jacks. One reason for that is that those dc jacks are soldered on the motherboard directly . Unlike hp laptops or dell laptops that use charging ports that plug into the motherboard using a little wire.
For that reason Asus jacks are a little more prone to being damaged easier. because if a person trips over the charging cord or pulls the cord accidentally even a little bit. The charging port breaks on them easier, since it is solidly soldered and the middle pin just takes all the pressure and usually breaks off immediately.
Hence this particular 831GT Asus has a large charger and if user pulls on it too hard the charging port (dc jack) gets damaged easier and charging port needs to be replaced.
Good thing is, at fastest mac repair and pc repair newbury park, ca. We keep most of the dc jacks in stock and can replace them pretty quickly. Usually turn around is 2-3 hours. if you have charging port repair problem you can call us at 805-585-5535 or stop by at 3339 Kimber dr. Ste D, Newbury Park, CA.

Last we did two more macbook pro 2011 video chip repairs once again.
These macbook, like clockwork, have developed a graphics chip problem that has been knows for years. it can make computer boot up slowly, it can make macbook crash, it can make macbook show colored lines on the screen or it can prevent macbook pro 2011 from powering on.
Graphics or video chip on a 2011 macbook pro 15 inch (model number a1286) is located on a logic board. Hence the repair is actually macbook logic boar repair and requires advanced soldering.
Since we have done many of these, we can do it fairly quickly, depending on how many jobs we have in front. But rest assured, it is a solid repair and your macbook will run forever after. Meaning, you won’t have any more video chip problems.
That certainly doesn’t mean you won’t have any other problems with it. because they do get failing hard drive issues as well. But that is easily solved with SSD upgrade, which we also offer on site in our stores.
SSD upgrade usually takes few hours or it will be ready next day, depending on when you drop it off.
this macbook pro in photo, was fixed in just 2 days and now the graphics on it is running flawlessly!
we provide 6 months warranty with macbook pro 2011 video chip repair, but we never had anyone come back. so warranty is really just a formality!

Dell XPS 13 battery Replacement. and just like apple batteries some pc batteries also fail in similar fashion. but expanding or blowing up. this dell xps 13 battery has swallen on one side and was pushing the trackpad and made some keys not to press down. it had to be replaced immediately! i dont know if they do ever blow up from swalling up or not. i havent seen or heard it happen, but in theory its possible. because it happens due to gas build up inside since battery is made out of lithium. it happens due to many reasons one of them being the battery was faulty from beginning!
either way we had to order the dell xps 13 battery and 3 days later it was installed in 5 minutes!
