Repair for Home and Business
Has something gone wrong with your desktop or laptop? Maybe it's just suddenly stopped working, or perhaps it is running slower than it did before. Whatever the problem, I am the guy you need to fix it. With my help, your computer will work faster and be more efficient. With my advice and support, hopefully we can avoid any more problems in the future.

Repair & Maintenance
I can help you troubleshoot any problem with your desktop or network. I service Dell, HP, Compaq, Sony, Toshiba, IBM, Lenovo, Acer, Gateway, emachines, and more. I can troubleshoot startup issues, hardware, and software problems. I can test and replace failed components - Most common: power supply, hard drive, motherboard. Most people learn to live with their computer problems. Don't live that way. Let me help.

Spyware & Virus Removal
I have the tools to remove spyware or viruses and the knowledge to keep you safe in the future. Spyware is the most common reason that your PC will act strange or start operating slowly. You may be receiving annoying pop-ups or maybe your hard drive is constantly working. These are a couple of signs that your PC could be infected with spyware. Let me help.

Operating System Reinstall
Computers slow down because of the abundant software, plugins, and adware installed on them over time. Viruses can cause damage to system files requiring a reinstall. I will back up all of your photos, documents, music, etc., erase your hard drive, and reinstall the operating system. Do not run "System Restore" on your own, it can delete your personal files and many times it will even fail and make things worse. I have well proven methods to reinstall with all the latest updates/service packs while saving your personal files. Many people say their PC runs faster than when it was new. I service Windows XP, Windows Vista, and Windows 7.

Windows 7 Upgrade Advice
Call me for Windows 7 upgrade advice. I can help you before and after the decision to upgrade. I have already tested Windows 7 and like it. Windows 7 outperforms Windows Vista and will be a desired upgrade for many. Most current desktops are only 32-bit. 64-bit Windows option will be more common on new desktops with Windows 7. If you purchase a new desktop and want good performance, look for one with Windows 7, 64-Bit, a dual or quad core processor, and 4Gigs of RAM or more. If upgrading your current Vista or WinXP desktop, it may need other upgrades first, or maybe it is just too old. Call me for advice.

Migrating Files
Have you just purchased a new PC and need your files transfered off of your old one? I can transfer your documents, photos, music, and e-mail from your old one to your new computer. Even if your old PC does not run, I can sometimes recover the files. This service also includes a new Set-Up Tune-Up. I will remove the trial software, perform windows updates, and install a Free Anti-Virus.

Upgrades are a great way to extend the life of your machine for another few years without investing in a new computer. In most cases installing more memory, a faster CPU, a new hard drive, and/or a new video card can significantly speed up your system.

I can set up wired or wireless networks so they are secure and easy to use. Sharing internet, printers, and files will be easier than ever.

Backup Scheduling
I can install a backup system to guard against data loss in the event of a primary hard drive failure. Everyone needs to backup files, but most don't do it. I can make sure the right stuff is getting backed up to the right place, and that you know how to restore it if needed.
Software & Hardware Setup. If you need an upgrade for your software, a new program installed, or have any hardware you need set up, I can take care of it.

Laptop Repair
Has your screen gone out? Has your laptop been dropped and will no longer start up? Does the battery no longer charge? I can test and repair or replace failed components - Most common: Hard drive, keyboard, LCD screen, LCD inverter board, failed wireless, motherboard.

  • I would recommend this business

Jerry at SAPC Upgrades is fantastic. He helped fix my computer when a virus demolished it. Jerry takes time to personally explain computer issues and goes above and beyond the call of service. He worked extra fast on my computer over the weekend, doing a more thorough job and completing the task faster than any other company I've dealt with. He knows his industry (i.e. see his Facebook page) and I look forward to recommending him to friends, family, and small business owners. Thanks!

Customer Testimonials

Excellent Service! Jerry has saved 3 different computers that were badly infected with viruses. He was able to save my programs and data all three times. He provided great service in a very reasonable time.

What would I have done without his knowledge? I'm very impressed with Jerry's computer abilities. He has helped me out of a jam more than once. With computers so important in our lives, I nearly panic when something goes wrong. He is fair in his pricing and works hard to get your computer back to you asap. Great knowledge of computers and being able to eliminate problems.

Great One man service shop. Jerry is just a genius with virus infections. I tried everything and he got it .

Price Range: $50 - $100

Highly recommended! This guy is great! He took my gaming PC and in two days I got it back in better operating condition than it ever was and at a more than affordable price!! I looked almost everywhere for a reliable computer repair facility. I tried a private computer repair... nightmare. I also tried a PC repair department in a very large electronic store, which I won't name, but the techs were more confused than Ray Charles with a "Wheres Waldo" book and they wanted to charge me a ridiculous amount of money. They even made my PC worse. I expected much more from computer geeks. The Computer Repair Store is highly recommended. I will never go anywhere else for my PC issues.

Jerry is wonderful. We have four computers and always took them to large repair stores and it takes so long for them to repair and the prices are huge. Took a computer to Jerry and he examined it while we were there. It turned out that the hard drive was failing and he had to replace it. He saved as much as he could from the old hard drive and put it on the new one at no extra charge. He cleaned all the dust out. He has a flat rate and charges extra for anything he has to purchase. This computer runs faster than the day it was new. We are very pleased. This is definitely the place to go for PC repair.

Great work done! I would recommend to my friends. Very good service here and calls you right away when its ready which was very fast for us.
