Updates

Last week I replaced a cracked display in this Lenovo laptop for a student at our local college.
It's back again, the reported failure:
as he was doing homework it got slower and slower until it stopped working. Restarting the laptop went nowhere fast.

Based on update history I thought at first ...

Today I worked on a HP 6500 All in One inkjet printer reporting paper jams.
The printer is a few years old but rarely used.
I opened up the printer and found the paper path was spotless, rollers showed no significant wear.
I did notice the ink cartridge carriage was stuck in the park/clean heads ...

Yes,
I build custom Windows desktop and tower computers to your specifications.

Custom built computers usually cost more than off the shelf mass marketed machines.

His widow requested I recover the photos, home videos, audio files, documents and e-mail.

I was able to recover over 31,400 files including home 8mm movies and VHS tapes converted to digital formats.

On my bench is a partly disassembled HP C5550 printer with carriage jam error messages.

The cost of parts and labor to repair this printer are higher then the cost of purchasing a new printer.

I suggested the customer buy a new printer rather than repair the old one.

Apple's Airport Extreme is a great router
but does suffer from cooling fan failures.

I can clean and lubricate or replace the fan with a new one for far less than the cost of a new router.

Using the Internet without a firewall enabled is like running down the street naked and wondering what everyone is looking at.

Most, if not all cable modems do not have built in firewalls.
Some local ISP's disable the firewall in the WiFi routers they hand out to subscribers, thinking this will ...

Welcome to Kirbytown Computers

As an Independent Information Technology Consultant I enjoy helping people solve their Windows-based personal computer and WiFi networking hardware and software problems.

I am known for being very patient and working well with all age groups, including Seniors.

I resolve computer-related issues at a very reasonable rate, especially compared to major stores, and I will not sell you something you do not need.

My career spans over 40 years in the IT industry with Western Union and IBM. During that time I held numerous positions, including repairing everything from the cash registers in the cafeteria to the water-cooled mainframes in data centers. My last assignment with IBM was as a Data Analyst and Business Program Manager for the Global IBM Lenovo Project Office researching and responding to service delivery concerns.

Please contact me for your home and small office Windows computer and WiFi repairs, and upgrade and consulting needs.

I provide on-site service in the Mid Hudson Valley area as well as remote desktop technical support. You can also bring your computer to my location in Middletown just down the road from I-84 Exit 3 and receive a reduced hourly labor charge.
