Some software will require you to re-activate when changing disks. We have found Microsoft Office requires you to re-activate your license. Please make sure you have your license available, or let us know you are able to re-activate or re-install if needed.

  •   Karla is the best. Very professional and provided the best advice for me and my Mac, even though that meant sending me to the Apple store.

    Will certainly use them for any issues in the future. It's difficult to find trustworthy businesses these days. Thanks Pleasanton Computer Repair!!

      Fixed the MacBook Air in the time promised and at low cost. So glad we bypassed the official Apple channels where there was a two-week wait to just bring it in. Will definitely use them again! Nice and friendly local shop.

  •   Took a chance on this business to assess a non-responsive keyboard problem. I was considering chucking my laptop but wanted to see if it was worth saving. I don't know if these guys have "magic IT dust", but they were quick to let me know they couldn't replicate the problem. Two techs took a shot at it and both reported there were no issues. I like their online ticketing system as that was our primary mode of communication. But what impressed me is that they didn't try to bilk me out of more money than necessary and just charged the diagnostic fee. They even assured me nothing was wrong and if I found otherwise, they invited me to come back and have another go at it. Very professional, timely, and no complaints. Thanks Ryan and Gabe for your due diligence!

      I had a dead laptop, and Pleasanton Computer Repair's proximity and his reviews helped me choose them for help. The quotes up front were simple, and they were pleasant and professional to deal with. For Covid safety, they require appointments to ensure one customer at a time. The one drawback was that they could not identify the problem with the tools available there and would need to send it to a lab in San Jose at additional cost. The tech was able to assure me the hard drive was not damaged, however, so I was able to transfer files myself by moving the drive to a case and connecting it as an external drive.
