Paul restored the sound the day I took my computer in and I was able to resume work that evening. This was the third time I've used his services.

DESCRIPTION OF WORK
I lost all sound on my computer, including the audio files which I need for my work.

MY REQUEST : TO HELP ME EXAMINE WHY I CAN NOT ADD ANOTHER USER ON MY WINDOWS 7 COMPUTER. TO TEACH ME HOW TO SHARE FILES ON A PEER-TO-PEER NETWORK BETWEEN ONLY 2 USERS. THE VENDOR'S EMPLOYEE SPENT 1.5 HOURS ON THE ADDITIONAL USER PROBLEM AND LEFT ME WITH THE ABILITY TO ADD A NEW USER.  HOWEVER, WHEN I ADDED THE NEW USER, I COULD NOT TRANSFER THE USER FILES TO THE NEW USER PROFILE, WHICH RENDERED TH...

I'm sorry that you weren't pleased with the service. The nature of the problem was not clearly stated at the time of booking the service call. My tech is very experienced, however there will always be situations with PCs that require additional troubleshooting help and assistance. No one tech can know everything. Therefore, I consulted with my tech while he was there, over the phone and via texts,...

Paul Nurminen, the owner, was very helpful. He explained the various steps that would have to taken to accomplish this. He also explained some of the pros and cons of the Windows 8 operating system, which my old computer did not have. The person from Paul's office was very personable, friendly, and most important, was willing to explain what he was doing and why. I appreciated Paul 's helpfulness ...

DESCRIPTION OF WORK
I called White Flag Computing for help in setting up a new all-in- one computer and printer that I had just purchased.

SERVICE PROVIDER RESPONSE

Thank you for the kind words! Upgrading to a new computer - especially when the operating system is a newer version than the one on your previous computer - can require a period of adjustment. Windows 8 is quite a bit different than earlier versions. I'm glad we could help you get more comfortable with it. Please don't hesitate to contact us if you need anything further.

Paul contacted me earlier in the day to share that he was sending his best technician instead of himself.  (He was still working on a job started earlier that week.)   His technician arrived on-time and was friendly and professional.  He was able to install my monitor in about 15 minutes.  After working on my Apple product / HP printer connection for a good 60 minutes (including two consults call ...

DESCRIPTION OF WORK
I had purchased a large computer desktop monitor that I needed installed.  Also, over the past two months, the connection between my HP printer and my two Apple products (Iphone & Ipad) has not been working, preventing me from printing directly.  So, I ask the technician to investigate and resolve.

SERVICE PROVIDER RESPONSE

Thanks for the kind words. Given that all of your Apple devices stopped working with your HP printer at the same time, and my technician updated the HP drivers and software, and it still wasn't working, my conclusion is that it's most likely a hardware issue with your printer. Thanks again for your business.

A couple of weekends ago I started having trouble booting up and shutting down my computer.  I suspected the hard drive.  First thing Monday morning I called Paul and took him my computer which I purchased in 2008.  He copied my data off the hard drive so that I wouldn't lose it and then ran diagnostics.  Hard drive had multiple bad sectors and a motherboard hard drive controller problem.  In othe...

DESCRIPTION OF WORK
Paul has been my computer guy since 2008.  He has saved me from two hard drive crashes and has set-up two new computers.  He is very knowledgeable, trustworthy, professional, and a pleasure to work with.  He's very responsive in an emergency and goes the extra mile.  When I first started using him I was local to his location.  I now live a ways away but still drive to have him do my work because I trust him to do a good job.  I would highly recommend Paul to anyone needing a knowledgeable computer person.

Thank you so much for the nice report! I'm glad I could help you upgrade to a new computer. And I appreciated your patience as I worked through the hurdles involved in the data recovery from your old damaged drive, your email setup and data importing, and especially the Windows 8 / Windows 7 transition (ie. finding the right Windows 7 drivers for your Windows 8-designed hardware). These issues cau...
