Computer technology advances rapidly enough that it is often better to simply replace your computer than repair it. If it makes more sense to recycle your computer than repair it, we will let you know before performing any repairs.

Do you offer a no fix/no fee guarantee?

Nerd Busters charges for both diagnosing and fixing the problem on an hourly basis. Just think of us like a doctor for your tech needs. Because problems can vary greatly, we have a minimum $50 diagnostic fee. We do however, guarantee our services. Please see our Warranty and Performance Guarantee page for more info.
