Will I Need To Activate Any Software?

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.

As long as we get your system by 10am and your hard drive test passes, it will be ready by 5pm that day.

Just by changing your hard drive to an SSD, it will increase the performance. SSD’s don’t have any moving parts, so accessing data is much faster than a standard mechanical hard disk drive (HDD). We also include our system tune-up package, which will optimize your computer for speed.

We use only brand names and brand parts like SanDisk, PNY, Samsung, Kingston and others, depending on availability.

  •   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.

  •   My only regret is not going to them sooner. I contacted them first when I was having laptop fan problems but then my dad's friend said he would work on it... I took him two weeks and he still never got it to work and also made it much worse than it already was.

    Pleasanton Computer Repair took only about a week and they were very communicative on updates which I greatly appreciated. The prices were very reasonable and they got my computer up and running in an adequate amount of time also.

      My old HP laptop finally died and it flashed the famed BLUE SCREEN of DEATH before its final breath, it also had issues with the hinges. I called and made an appointment to take it in, upon arrival I was told the cost to repair if possible would be high, but it seemed as though my hard drive was fried beyond recovery (7%) along with the cosmetic issues it was a hot mess. I left feeling pretty bad as 7 years worth of files etc were effected. A few hours later KC called and said they would try to recover but no promises, well they were able to save everything for a reasonable price and it only took 2 or 3 days. I bought a new laptop dropped it by the shop, they transfered all my files, set everything up for me, done. I couldn't be happier. A couple weeks later I had a glitch with my Microsoft 365, called and again KC handled it, he straightened it over the phone and now I'm up and running full speed ahead!! Professionals! Thank you guys!! 5 STARS!!!

  •   Pleasanton Computer saved me the price of a new computer which I greatly appreciated.  They installed a new processor which made my computer better than it ever has and their service was fast and friendly.  They are a go to computer shop.

      My dog had a bad accident experience with Petco. After the accident I have struggled taking my dog to any grooming. Waited a couple months and happy I found these place. They were able to manage my dog anxiety and calm her down. When I picked up my dog was calm. I can tell she felt safe there. I'm definitely keeping them as my grooming from now on.
