Can data be saved from a broken computer?  Either the battery finally dies, you spilled coffee all over the keyboard, or you get the dreaded blue screen of death, and everything you worked on is suddenly gone. Or even worse, especially with any of hardware damage or a blue/black screen, it could mean you just lost EVERYTHING on your computer - saved or not. What will you do?!? First, breathe. Even though your physical computer may be dead, the information inside is still salvageable.

I had a hard drive go down on a piece of video equipment. Michael and Computer Corner had me up and running in just a few days (parts had to be ordered). Thank you Computer Corner!

My son owns a computer businness in NC so when we needed someone local, we got a recommendation for Computer Corner from a friend. I am more than pleased. I will recommend them in a heartbeat. They communicated the status of my computer to me by text and the work was done very fast and the turnaround would probably have been faster if it hadn't been Thanksgiving week.

Best experience I've had with laptop repairs in Florida. Answered my many questions quickly, informed me of all of my options, and made sure I took home a well tuned machine. All repairs are costly no matter where you go, but at least you get what you pay for with the helpful staff here. As I type this, I'm planning another trip to see them.
