How To Fix 95% of Your PC’s Problems

I’m going to explain to you the process that one can go through to fix their own computers.  This is specifically geared towards PC users, as Macs are exempt from most of these problems– the searching for problem fixes section you may still want to read though.    By using this process I’ve never had to pay to get a computer fixed in the past 15 years of being a computer user.  It is, however, lengthy, and kind of daunting.  If you don’t want to bother reading, or are leary of trying it out on your own, I am available to you at a nominal cost.  Contact me either by phone at 225-366-9324 or email at kelly@khowebdesign.com to discuss what you need done.  I offer phone consultation, remote access support (where you stay at home and grant me access to your computer from my own computer), or on-site support within my service area.  Travel expenses may apply.

Let me start off by saying that I am not formally educated in IT work.  I do not have a certificate (though I’m contemplating getting one) nor have I a degree or any of those official type documents that confirm that I mean it when I say that I know what I’m talking about.

If your computer is fixable, if it can be saved, I can save it.  But you didn’t go to school Kelly, how can you say that?  Because I’ve saved countless computers before, and will continue to.  My Dad is an engineer, and as such he’s taught me through the years about the art of taking everything apart and building it back together again.

Plus, I have this inherent bullheadedness that when I sit down at a computer screen and it tells me I can’t do it, I damn well am going to MAKE it do what I want it to do!

Now what’s funny is that my Dad, the aforementioned engineer, can do most anything else, but when his computer goes NO!, he calls me to fix it.  One such time, he asked me to make him a How To Make This Computer Work When You’re A Damn Engineer and STILL CAN’T DO IT Guide.  This is that.

Tips Regarding Craigslist

If you’re interested in advertising for your new business and want to use Craigslist to do so I wanted to give you a tip: Don’t provide your email. Hide it. If you have a website (and if you don’t, Hi, I might could help you out with that, lol), provide that, or your business phone, but choose the “hide” function for your email address. Spammers, scammers, and hacks alike loooove to filter through Craigslist and spam you with “so you like web design, get a free credit card!” offers… etc etc etc. Perhaps put it in the body, but even then they’ll spam you. This was a lesson hard-learned by me. I am now the proud receiver of about 10 spam emails a day on my business email.
