Computer Tune-Up             $79.99

A computer tune-up is a generic service that all PC repair shops offer for a minimal fee and a quick pay check. They do not actually investigate why the computer is slow and are just performing a routine maintenance that most users neglect to do themselves. I will search for the cause and fix it, and then do the maintenance.

My comprehensive tune-up includes:

Wired and Wireless Network Troubleshooting             $69.99

Most all Internet problems involve your modem, router, or PC network card. I will determine the reason for improper network functioning, troubleshoot, and repair your network connection and ensure your networked peripherals are properly reconnected.

I am usually able to restore saved files from a "crashed" hard drive.

About Larry Ciavarella            
Larry in the shop

Hello, my name is Larry Ciavarella (pronunciation: Siv-er-ella). I was born and raised on Akron's North Hill and I have lived in Kent, Ohio for the past 37 years. Kent is where I presently live with my family. I have two children, Angelo and Ann Marie and have been married to my lovely wife Diane for 32 years.

I graduated Cum Laude with a BBA in Computer Information Systems from Kent State University and have been fixing and repairing computers for the past 24 years.

I retired October 2009 and I spend the majority of my time now doing the two things that I love doing most, working in my computer shop and playing golf.
