This customer’s Toshiba laptop was infected with a variation on the FBI / MoneyPak virus / malware.  On boot-up the computer’s screen would be immediately taken over by a threat wanting $200 to be paid to release it.  When it was in this state the computer was completely function-less.  You could not do anything but view the warning.

We were able to remove the infection and save the customer data and computer.  If you have this or any virus / malware or even if you suspect you might please give us a call.

We offer pick-up and drop-off service in Hendersonville, Arden, Flether, Asheville, and the surrounding areas.

Customer’s Toshiba laptop was overheating constantly causing the fan to be extremely loud and at full speed constantly.  The old fan was clogged with dirt and dust and would not spin at full speed.  The fan was replaced and resulted in a 50 degree Fahrenheit temperature drop.  This allows the laptop to function for years to come with no lock-ups, overheating, and excessive fan noise.

Excessive heat in a laptop can result in a dead motherboard, damaged cpu, bad hard drive, and loss of data.  If your computer’s fan is running loud please give us a call to have it cleaned or replaced.

We service Hendersonville, Fletcher, Arden, Tryon, Mountain Home, Etowah, Brevard, Asheville, and the surrounding areas.
