    Bob, with All American Solutions is nothing short of exceptional. He was professional, punctual, and knowledgable with my issue and how to repair and restore my computer function. I would highly recommend All American Solutions to anyone looking for these qualities in a professional service like this.

    The problem was a BIOS message that said "press F1 to continue," but when I pressed F1, nothing happened. Sean arrived promptly at 12 noon on 11/21/2020, and began work immediately. By 2:00 Sean had removed RAM memory and reinstalled it, examined and changed certain jumper settings, removed and reinserted a 2032 CMOS battery, and other things which I can't remember. He was considering removing the SSD drive, which hosts the Windows 10 operating system, saying the drive might not be properly seated. But I told him the computer had been working fine until just quite recently, which indicated that the SSD surely was installed properly, and that I would prefer that he not remove it. So he did not remove the SSD, but I don't think he appreciated my interfering. Sean indicated early on that he did not like customers watching him work. He was polite about this. Thinking he meant that my talking or making suggestions annoyed him, I stopped talking and just watched. But after an hour or so of my just watching, Sean made it clear, politely, that he would prefer to work alone. At that point I left the office and did not bother him for the next two hours. After about 2.5 hours, Sean said he had found the bootup problem. All that was wrong was that a keyboard lock key on my Microsoft keyboard had been accidentally set. (I never knew there was such a key before this.) Once this key was unset, the computer booted up, responded to the F1 key press normally, and then booted up to the BIOS. Sean updated my BIOS too, at my request. Sean seemed embarrassed that this work had taken so long, as if he believed he should have checked simple things first (like the keyboard); he said he would only charge me for two hours even though he had worked for three. Let me add that I suspected a keyboard was an issue myself. That is why I called the tech shop Sean works out of in Sacramento (I've misplaced their phone number) Saturday morning 11/21, and left a voice mail asking the tech person to bring an extra keyboard with him. Sean either never got this voice mail, or else he got it and ignored it. The keyboard issue was the last thing he looked at; arguably it should have been first. As I was about to sign the papers Sean gave me at around 3:00 pm, I said "First let me check that everything is working." It was then that I determined that the LED power light on my computer's power-on switch was no longer functioning. I explained this to Sean, pointing out that it was working before he arrived. But he dismissed this complaint rather abruptly and rudely, saying it was a trivial and minor issue, or something to that effect. He clearly didn't want to stick around another minute. I added that I didn't want to sign any papers until this problem, which Sean himself had caused when he tampered with jumper settings, had been restored to working order. "Fine," Sean said, gathering up the unsigned paperwork and heading for the door. I said, "It's OK. If you are tired now, you can come back tomorrow." "I'm not ever coming back," Sean replied, walking out the door. He was obviously angry when he left, and didn't want to discuss the matter any further. Except for watching Sean for the first hour, keeping quiet most of the time, I don't know what I did to make this MyComputerWorks computer technician so angry. Despite overlooking a simple solution to my problem at the outset, he still fixed the main problem, and I'm glad to pay My Computer Works for his two hours work. I had a $10 bill in my pants pocket and was all ready to give it to Sean as a tip, but he left in anger before I could give it to him. It truly is important that this power-on LED light up and stay on while the computer is running. My computer is very quiet, and after a time of non-use, the monitors go dark even though the computer is on and Windows 10 is running. So the only way to be sure this computer is on or off is to look at the LED power light on the power switch. If the LED is on, the computer is running; LED off means it has been shut down. With no lights of any kind, this is becomes a non-trivial matter. I believe it would not be difficult for a knowledgeable tech person to fix this. It's just a matter of getting the jumpers Sean changed set back to where they were before he arrived. However, Sean has said he won't ever come back here -- giving no reason. I am asking MyComputerWorks to send another tech to clean up after Sean, fixing the jumper problem that he caused, since Sean is no longer willing to come over here. I am also recommending Sean have more training in troubleshooting and an anger management class.

  • Love 2 Fix
    5.0
    I cracked my cell phone screen due to carelessness. Love 2 Fix quoted me a price lower than anyone else from whom I could get a quote. It wasn't cheap, but that's the way it goes and the tech took the time to explain why this kind of repair is so expensive. They had to order the part which came in the next day and then they fixed my screen within just a few hours so that it it is good as new. Since they also repair computers, I took in my laptop due to an issue with the battery. They charged me $100 less for a diagnostic than the place where I had previously been going for computer issues and the diagnostic fee will be applied to the very reasonable cost of repair which is in process.

    Josh was great! He arrived on time and immediately went to work and got my computer working right away! Apparently my computer automatically updated and when it restarted itself it can never start to Windows. It keeps restarting over and over again. josh save my computer and most important many years of files and family pictures that are very precious to me. He was kind and very professional. I definitely recommend his service to anyone.

  • Sherlock Handyman Repair
    5.0
    He did a wonderful job. It took a lot of his specialized tools to remove the old hard drive, due to the age of my old computer. Although the job took longer than planned, and he had other pressing commitments, he stayed to finish the job thoroughly and cleaned up after himself before leaving. He encouraged me to call if any more problems arose, and offered to make any further repairs without charge. I was referred to him by several close friends who had made use of his services for indoor work such as cabinetry repair and outdoor work as well. I recommend his work highly and would hire him again!

    The work was good BUT I could not get any explanations as to what had been accomplished. I am old and don't readily understand tech systems. Changes were made and the tech. left. I emailed some questions which were never answered. The work was very good but I needed some explanations which I did not get. Required block re. rehiring was left open which YOU do NOT allow. I will check one of the blocks just to satisify your. Answer remains UNK.

    I have explained what happened in an earlier review. A man named Sean came out to my house on 11/21/2020 to fix a bootup problem on my computer. Although he fixed the problem, he broke something else while doing so. What I have not explained so far is that I am unable to get any kind of response from this company's Customer Service department. When I complained by calling Customer Support (480-374-1172) five times over a period of about 10 days, and then by writing to them (customercare@mycomputerworks.com), I got no response of any kind. Perhaps there is a delay due to layoffs or other CV19-related problems. But then, someone could write to me and say that, couldn't they? The longer I go without some kind of response to my complaint, the easier it is to believe that this company doesn't really care about responsibility to customers. The repairman fixed one thing, but he broke something else. The fact that MyComputerWorks already has received more than $250 of my money -- they require payment in advance -- is part of the reason, it seems, that they no longer care if I am satisfied. I hope I am wrong about this. But if nothing is done by Angie's List or MyComputerWorks, I must consider other options.

    Armando was knowledgeable, and spent a lot of time tuning up our computer, fixing problems and explaining everything to us. He was helpful, courteous and patient. Excellent service.

    I live in California, the computer (laptop) I needed someone to look at was in Nevada, about an hour outside of Las Vegas, it was for my brother in law. I called and talked to Mike, told him what the problem was that needed to be corrected and to do a basic overall computer cleaning, I agreed to his price, Gave him the address of the computer and a phone number., agreed on a time and date. all was set. On the date and time someone named Richard had called my brother in law to see if it was still ok to drive and do the work,( I guess Richard was coming from Las Vegas area an hour away), brother in law said yes. that was at 7:30 AM for a 10:00 AM show time. Brother in law text Richard back after 10:30 AM to see what was going on, he did not get a reply. In the meantime, I was a sleep in California and someone had called me, since I didn't answer no one showed up at my brother in laws ???? I called Mike back got an answering machine, someone was suppose to call me back, still waiting after 5 days. Received an email survey on how things went, I scored them low and got a reply saying someone would contact me, still waiting on that also. I called and talked to the tech who was suppose to go to fix the computer and we made arrangement for him to go the following day. He did show up but only fixed the dual screen and a printer issue, and was gone. No computer basic cleaning or system diagnosis. An hour later my brother in law called and said he had a virus on his computer with a loud sound and someone wanting money to fix the issue. I told him to turn off his computer for awhile, and turn it back on, virus seem to have left for the moment
