If you asked for a recommendation and are pleased with the work from the suggested provider be sure to share your experience in the Recommendations Section!

I would like to recommend Doctorlaptops Computer Service. My desktop computer sat idle for 3 months while I was away. The next time I tried to use it there was a blank screen and some beeping noise. I took it to a local shop and was informed I would need an expensive repair. I brought it to Nathan for a second opinion. He told me to go get a coffee and return in 45mins. When I returned he had it running again and only charged me €20. Highly recommend.
