delivered the working computers and they appeared to be working. He called regularly to check up on the working of the new build. He installed new memory for my wife's computer and the operating speed has increased, which was her main complaint. He installed some new free virus scan, spam ware
, and malware killers. I hope he's correct about them solving all protection needs.

Just some side info... If you install XP Pro with SP3 or Windows 7, they make installation of your older Windows stuff impossible (they have snooper ware that verifies authenticity). They sense a change of the machine signature and will not allow the old license to work. This includes Adobe Acrobat (not the free reader, the full version). We had to buy the new 2010 Windows Office (our stuff was the older version... time to upgrade). They (your original stuff) will keep complaining about the wrong OS. With Acrobat you have to call to get a new validation code based on the new machine signature, you have to explain you rebuilt the OS. So don't blame
; its Bill Gates fault!

The bill was in line with what
and Geek Squad charges, but with
you get to talk to the real person who is working on your stuff.

This is a general review of the services provided me by
Madison Computer Repair Services Provider Name Locked
of
Madison Computer Repair Services Provider Name Locked
Tech Services as I was one of
Madison Computer Repair Services Provider Name Locked
's original clients when
Madison Computer Repair Services Provider Name Locked
started his business three years ago. Mr.
Madison Computer Repair Services Provider Name Locked
is the ultimate professional who works full-time as an IT professional whilst owning his own business on the side (as many do to either make ends meet or share their passion with the rest of us who need it). I have relied on Mr.
Madison Computer Repair Services Provider Name Locked
's ability to navigate through my own computer issues and he has never failed me. I've often phoned him in a panic and he's delt with my issues calmly and professionally. I've also waited in line while he delt with other clients who's issues were more pressing, and I have been happy to do so. I've recommended Mr.

to many of my friends and they have certainly availed themselves of his computer talents. I trust Mr.

in his business dealings implicently - price, work ethic, knowledge and performance. I hope Mr.

Sooo....first,
Madison Computer Repair Services Provider Name Locked
is a very nice guy. However,
Madison Computer Repair Services Provider Name Locked
now works in Nashville during the week and is only home to the Huntsville area on the weekends.
My first impression of him was that he was awesome. My computer system had crashed because I pulled the plug during a thunder storm before the computer fully shut down which resulted in the computer hanging up.
Madison Computer Repair Services Provider Name Locked
took my call while in
Madison Computer Repair Services Provider Name Locked
and suggested how to fix the system. For this I am very grateful.

What happened next was I had him come and check my computer to make sure everything was working properly. He came to my house and spent an hour tweaking it (basically running various checks on the system), for which I paid him $50. He suggested that my laptop would work much better if I had Windows 7 and increased my RAM up to 4 GB. He said he could install it for me for (including the RAM) for about $160. We met the following weekend for the handoff and he loaded Window 7. When I received the call it was ready, the bill was $227.50. I was surprised that is was $70 more than quoted, but paid it anyways. When I asked about the RAM, he mentioned he did not upgrade the RAM and this would be another $60. I was a little discouraged at that point since I felt like I was being taken advantage of, but the guy is relatively nice, so I said to go ahead and order the RAM. He did so and the following weekend was supposed to install it. Due to some personal things in his life, he wasn't able to install it, so I picked it up since I had to go out of town and could use the IT guy at my new location to install it for me. When we went to install the RAM, the system wouldn't let us do it since my particular type of laptop can only take 2GB of RAM

. If
Madison Computer Repair Services Provider Name Locked
had gone to the crucial.com website (where he bought my RAM) and entered my computer system on it, it would have told him the
Madison Computer Repair Services Provider Name Locked
amount of RAM that could be installed on that unit. He did not do that. He is supposed to refund my $60 this next weekend.

I think if
Madison Computer Repair Services Provider Name Locked
wasn't burning the candle at both ends by having a job in
Madison Computer Repair Services Provider Name Locked
during the week and trying to run this business on the weekends, it would've been a better experience. Perhaps taking a few extra minutes to SLOW DOWN and write out an estimate of everything he would need for the job including the prices would ensure people know up front how much the repair would/should cost so they can budget accordingly. I think if he had taken that approach, it might've been a better experience. So now I am stuck with a laptop that runs slower because Windows 7 uses more memory and a laptop that can't be upgraded to more RAM. Basically, the last step which cost me almost $300 was not necessary. If you need something
Madison Computer Repair Services Provider Name Locked
done like coming back from a system crash, he would be okay to use. Otherwise, for the bigger jobs, I recommend he provide a written estimate with the items he plans to do.

UPDATE: After posting this review, I received a number of text messages from
Madison Computer Repair Services Provider Name Locked
commenting on the bad review. I understand he is upset, but harassing someone about a review is not a good way to go. My review was honest and not meant to be mean, but to let those that use Angie's list get what they pay for...an honest review of someone's experience.

The personnel did an excellent job, going beyond what I expected when they recommended and installed a free anti-virus program that they recommended and the re-installation of the Windows operating system.
They performed the work at the advertised price ($55 plus $30 if bench time exceeded 1 hour).
