Need Some Computer Repair?

Hey there friends. So I've decided. As of today, I am my own boss! (At least from the hours of 3:45 PM to 7:15 AM lol) I am now a computer repair guy for hire. It dawned on me this weekend. I sat on my ass fixing comps for free and was like, what the hell, I should be getting paid for this, so why not start a lil business on the side. 1 employee, 1 boss, 1 IT guy, 1 Customer service guy, 1 anything guy, and that guy is ME! I just need to iron out the details. Will I be bring the comps home to work on, where I naturally would feel more comfortable, or would I be making house calls? I guess that would depend on the severity of the issue. I don't know, we'll see. I'll put a lot more thought into this but decided I should post, just in case someone needed "a computer guy" to fix a comp. lol Considering that I can't travel overseas or across country (that bill would be monstrous), I will have to refrain from taking any jobs that are not within 25 miles from the Long Beach, CA area. Feel free to Email me. Metallman555@gmail.com Later!

Hey there Ree. Thanks for the advice. I know it's gonna be tough, but I'll stick it out. Hopefully, it'll all turn out well and I'll have crew of people working for me driving in their own "Geek Squad" vans with my logo on em. =o)

Thank you for stopping by often. I check out 2 of your blogs and have subscribed to them as well.

What you're interested in is computer science. My hs's cs program taught c++, html, asp and integrated web design. Basically in CS you work with learning how to program and applying that to specific areas like web programming, database programming, etc.

The tech repair guys (unless you want to strike out on your own and target home and small business users) are low paid employees due to the commoditization of PCs.

It depends on what kind of certifications you have and the company you work for. Some larger companies can pay well but demand education and experience.

I run a home-based computer repair business, and I am looking for other computer repair specialists like me. I want to get tips on running my business.

I do not run a computer repair business and do not know exactly what kind of tips you are looking for but I found this website that might help you, as it is a forum for people who own computer repair businesses.

You can also do a google or yahoo search for "computer repair business forum" and it looks like it turned up plenty of good results.

Now you should be looking at a black and white screen,you will need to use you arrow keys to navagate down about four spot's "untill it says start at last sucessful boot attempt.

The real opportunity is setting up wireless networks, installing anti-virus and anti-spamware software, developing secure VPNs for mobile employees, and integrating handheld devices (Blackberry and Windows Mobile phones) into the company.
