Desperately seeking assistance

Now this is hilarious: What should I do if my computer needs repair and I don’t trust the only nearby computer shop?

The last time I went there I wanted them to fix my external HD. When I went back to pick it up, the tech handed it to me in pieces and said they couldn’t fix it. Now I don’t trust them. There’s one further away (about 60 mile round trip). I called them and asked if they could clean out my CPU insides and fans while I waited. They said they don’t do any work at that shop since it’s only a satellite office — they sent everything to a shop in Wisconsin and it would take 10 to 14 business days and they only accept credit card payments (which I don’t have).

You have basically two options here:

  • Move;
  • Learn to do this stuff yourself.

Surely you can clean the internals without anyone holding your hand.
