I find it hilarious that she is saying that it was a complicated computer problem but the article implies it was about her not being able to use a browser.

Sheri, a new operating system is not "upwards of $1000". It's not even upwards of $300. It's, at the most, $180 to $200 for the most expensive and most current OS (Windows 8 Ultimate), and installing it takes about 30 minutes. If you want me to give you an estimate of how much he cost you be destroying your hard drive, I'd say $230. Some problems require complete hard drive wiping, and most repairers do not include giving you a free OS in their costs.

"What do i do? Sue him??" No. If you took him wiping a hard drive to court after you told him to fix it, you would lose the case and he could countersue you and win 9 times out of 10.

What do you do when the computer fixit guy takes your computer to fix it,and you never see the computer or the person again? He keeps saying its at some other guys place. One other computer he took home & brought back totally unusable, as he emptied out the hard drive, had no software to use to put the programs back into it,and dumped the hard drive. Now i am sitting with a useless computer... What do i do? Sue him??? This guy has costed me in upwards of $1,000 dollars.. Now i can''t get ahold of him, his phone number has changed. Terrific ...
