Computer Diagnostic and Repair

Operating System Installs/Software Updates/Software Upgrades
Want to move to the latest operating system but don’t want to deal with the hassle? Let Techie technicians take care of that so you can sit back and relax.
Computers are serviced on a first-come, first serve basis. The repair process could involve running scans, checking the system, and verifying the root of the problem. Another component in the process is the volume of computers the Techies take in – some weeks are much more active. The Wolfpack Techies goal is to keep in communication with the customer about the length of time for each repair.
What we don’t do
The Techies do not make any purchases. It is expected that the customer will order and purchase any item needed to complete the repair process, including software. The Techies will attempt to provide recommendations on product purchases. Every effort is made to provide a solid recommendation. (The Techies will not provide a recommendation for purchases on Ebay, as the legitimacy of products sold has not been satisfactorily proven.)
