What if something goes wrong ?

Internet Computer Store National Superstore "Call For Help!" Computer Services
For warranty repairs, take it apart, pack it up, and pay to ship it back to the factory for repair.  For warranty repairs, take it apart, haul it back to the superstore. You'll have to leave it with them, which means a return trip when it's ready. For warranty repairs (two years parts and labor on hardware components), just pick up the phone and "Call For Help!" It's that easy!  We come to the computer (at no charge for covered repairs), so you don't have to take it apart. Often, we can  fix it on the spot, saving you time and effort, and eliminating the need to live without your computer for long periods of time!

Not easy to upgrade

A large percentage of these computers have devices (e.g., video card, sound card, etc.) built into the motherboard.  If the device can't be removed, it can't be upgraded. And don't forget, if you break the seal on the computer case, your warranty is void.

What is a "Super-Tweak" Tune Up ?

If you have a fast processor (350 MHz or faster) and at least 64MB of physical memory, and are running Windows 95b or higher, we can make your machine achieve performance you never thought possible. We start by freeing up space on your hard drive, then check your drive for errors, followed by optimizing your files. Then the real fun begins. We are aware of little known settings, in Windows, that can quite noticeably improve speed, provide smoother performance, free up hard drive space, and virtually eliminate those pesky illegal operations, Windows protection errors, and screen freezes. Software programs built to "enhance" the performance of Windows often consume more resources than they free up, including memory and hard drive space. Many "Crash Protectors" seem to cause more crashes than they cure.  We tap into the built-in abilities of Windows to achieve top performance and prevent problems before they happen, all for $30,  less than the cost of most utility programs, and at a special rate. It's a $50, value.
