      Ok so I very rarely take the time to leave a review. A business has to really stand out, good or bad, for me to take the time. That being said, I cannot recommend Pleasanton Computer Repair more highly. The GPU fan seized up in my MSI GS65 Stealth Thin 8RF laptop and I brought it in to have it replaced. I needed the repair done quickly since the laptop was my only computer and I had an important video call scheduled a few days later. The work was done quickly. The aftermarket fan that was sourced and rush shipped to accommodate my deadline functionally cooled the GPU, however it made a sound that was loud enough to be heard on the other end of my video call. I brought it back and they replaced the replacement, even installing a new CPU fan, all free of charge, as the fans were purchased as a set. Unfortunately within an hour of use the new CPU fan began making a loud clicking/grinding noise, and the GPU fan for some reason was loudly cycling even when the temperatures were low/moderate! After some back and forth discussing the issue they once again agreed to replace the fans. Third times a charm! The laptop is now cooling efficiently and is running nearly silently at normal temperatures. This laptop was a fairly high end machine when I bought it just a few years ago and I was starting to lose hope that it would ever function this well again. Gabe, Karla and every other employee I encountered through this ordeal were extremely helpful, friendly, and accommodating, even though they had to go back and redo this job multiple times. If you need computer repairs you can trust this company to treat you fairly. I am local, but service like this is worth a drive. Pleasanton Computer Repair is the only computer repair shop I would recommend, and in the future I won't take my business anywhere else.

  •   Very professional work and ethics. My PC just refused to turn on. I took it in on a Monday afternoon and KC signed me in and sent me a full diagnosis in a couple of days. Besides the power supply fubar they also verified that the boot drive is only 8% health. Two days after I got my PC back with new SSD and power supply. They have a good ticketing system that provides the elaboration of the diagnosis and updates on the repair. Very frictionless and very methodical. Super loved this place specially since I am an engineer myself. And best part I get to support a local town business. Highly recommend this place.

      This business has been a wonderful find for me.  Both my husband & I have used them several times.  In 2021 was the 1st time I used them when I tripped over my laptop cord & sent it flying.  They were able to get it working & everything was saved!  This is why we have both been back.  The turnaround is quick also & I feel the rates are good.

  •   I had problems with my desktop computer. After I rebooted the computer I could not open Excel and Word application anymore.
    Based on a recommendation from a good friend of our I called up a guy in Dublin. (See separate review). After almost two weeks the guy didn't fix the problem.
    I Googled and found Pleasanton Computer Repair. I called them on Thursday. I made an appointment for Monday. I brought the computer to them on Monday morning. In the afternoon I received a call from a technician and the problem was solved. I picked up the computer again on Tuesday (24 hours after drop off).
    Very happy with their service. Very responsive. Will definitely use them again and would recommend them.

      I highly recommend!!  My multiple questions were answered, the estimate was done in a timely fashion and was less than I expected, the repairs were completed before expected.  If you need help, give them a call.

  •   When I came in, I was told that there was either an issue with the battery or the motherboard. I paid 150 dollars for an "advanced diagnosis". 150 dollars and 2 days later they had come to the conclusion that the problem was either the battery or the motherboard. They then suggested I buy another battery to diagnose the problem myself. Staff were polite, but they took my money without making any headway into the problem. If there's an issue that can't be solved by restarting the computer, I don't recommend them.

      Great service. My 7-year-old laptop finally kicked the bucket for good after many near-death experiences. I decided to get a new laptop but save the old hard drive. I asked Pleasanton Computer Repair if they could first check the hard drive to make sure there were no physical/electrical issues and the data was uncorrupted, and if the hard drive was fine, just move it into an external case for me. If the data was corrupted, I requested that they attempt to recover it. Brought the laptop in, got an email 2 days later that it was ready to pick up. Data was fine, hard drive was in an external case, brought it home & plugged it into my new computer and it worked just fine. Very reasonable price, did not try to add unnecessary charges, friendly, fast, and effective. Highly recommended.

    SUMMARY: fast, affordable, effective, honest. Great repair shop.
