Will a Computer Repair Technician Rip you off?
This is one of the reasons why we at Computer Repair Services Pro are creating this website is to prevent a computer repair technician from ripping you off. We want to inform you about simple computer repairs that you can do to keep your money in your own pocket. How to talk to a Technician if they were to work on your computer. And how to spot someone that is trying to rip you off, by telling you a bunch of mumbo jumbo.
About 78 percent of households in the United States own a computer. And about less ten percent of those households actually know what a computer is and how it works. The lack of knowledge about a computer can lead you into trusting your local computer repair technician, which makes you an easy target, and could cost you a lot more money in the end. Computer Repair shops are popping up all over the country wanting to fix your computer. Granted some of these companies are very legit and are out to just help you and make a living while doing it. But there are some companies that are out there to just rip you off. Computer Repair Technicians can and will rip you off if you don’t know what they are saying, that is just a given. But let us explain how you can stop it from happening to you.
The first thing to do is know the basics of a computer. What does the hard drive do? What is RAM or memory etc…? The next thing is try to sound like you know something about what you are talking about. You don’t have to be an expert in the computer field, but you do need to know how to describe an issue that you are having. Try telling the computer person what you were doing before you had your problem. You could even try a couple of easy steps to fix your computer. Like restart your computer. Restart your cable modem. Make sure all the necessary cords are plugged up to your computer. After reading some of our repairs or articles, you should be able to diagnose your own problem. But the goal of this is by going this extra mile, you will prove to your computer technician you know something about your computer. And lastly, ask questions. If the computer technician says “you have a bad motherboard,” ask “what leads you to believe this”? If he says “your video card needs replacing” and says “you need to purchase a high end card”, ask him, “do I really need this or is this an upgrade”?
Bottom line there are a lot of computer technicians that are out to rip you off. But if you what to look for and how to spot them then you will be more aware and less likely to just hand your money over to a random guy.
