2 months later. My computer is still working, which is more than I expected considering that it's 4-5 years old. I use the anti-virus and malware software and love it.

This is the best computer repair! I had a virus of some kind that couldn't even be fixed with any of the anti-virus programs that I had on my pc. It looked pretty serious due to stating it was issued by the FBI! I yelped for HELP and tried out this very professional and efficient in home repair option. My pc was fixed within 30 mins, thank you for the awesome service! I would use this service again if needed.

I've been using Lighting Computer Repair for five years now and I wholeheartedly recommend them. I am your typical born-before-the-age-of-computers woman - pretty good at software, terrible at hardware. Charles Barnett has patiently worked with me to keep my computers working well. Over the years he has come to three different apartments to fix my computers, and came so highly recommended that he now goes to my ex-husband's house to take care of his computers. His prices are reasonable, he works quickly, he really understands software and hardware issues, he is helpful and patient and I hope he never moves away! Can't say enough good things! Am typing this on the laptop he just repaired.

Had an issue with my sons laptop wasn't sure what was wrong with it but Charles came out and picked up my laptop. Within a few hrs I received call saying that he found the issue and was able to solve it. The over all transaction from start to finish was about 5 hrs which was great, I took the same laptop around the corner a few weeks prior to callig lightning computer repair and they did a free diagnostic and they couldn't tell me what was wrong, Lightning Computer was able to tell me what the problem was and fix it. Hopefully I wont need there services again :)

Lightning Computer & Laptop Repair fixed my virus in less than 24 hours. I originally thought they just did software repair and virus removal, but when I asked I found out they do all hardware repair too. Screen replacements, DC jack repair and Hard drive replacements etc. Charles is very friendly and goes out of his way to explain what he is going to be doing to fix my computer.

Lightning Computer Repair was able to keep our very old (2004!) Dell PC working very efficiently - our computer seems like new again! The repair charges were very reasonable and quick - less than 24 hours. It is so convenient since they pick up and deliver. We would strongly recommend this company for any computer problems.

My computer had been blue-screening on me moderately frequently for several months. I tried to locate the problem myself by testing the hard drive and the memory, running ccleaner and malwarebytes. This last weekend, it blue-screened me again, then wouldn't boot. I could get to the BIOS, but windows wouldn't come up.

After reading a lot of the reviews on Charles of Lightning Computer Repair, I gave him a call Saturday at 4:00. We arranged for me to drop off my computer at noon on Sunday (even though this isn't a day he usually works). I had my computer back Monday at noon, all fixed. He found 2 problems: I had a couple of corrupted system files and there was a virus called "archive bomb". (This virus was probably the reason why AVG consistently crashed the computer.)

When he returned my computer, he also gave me (free) a laptop cooler (it's a platform with a built-in fan meant to cool the computer).

Conclusion: Charles' service was fast, accurate, and effective. I got the computer back with all of my old data still intact. He went above and beyond what was required for "good" quality work. I'd recommend him to anyone with similar computer problems.

Highly recommended.

My Windows XP desktop had been gradually getting unusable -- slow, with strange windows popping up. Then it wouldn't even boot Windows, complaining about a page fault. I was going to give it up for lost, but my husband said it was worth trying to salvage, and he found Lightning Computer Repair (with Google I think).

I was skeptical but called, and a few hours later Charles Barnett had my computer, and 24 hours after that, I had it back -- clean, sparkling and working like a charm!! With all the latest anti-spy/mal/virus-ware loaded. What a relief.

Unconventional (no office), but inexpensive, fast, competent, complete. Don't call Geek Squad, call Lightning.

Wonderful. My daughter's laptop got infected with a Trojan virus and was completely wrecked. Within 24hrs Lightning Computer Repair had picked it up from my home, repaired it and returned it with new anti-virus software installed. It's now working as good as new. Can't ask for any more than that! Really nice, approachable guy, who explained what he had done to repair the computer and how to keep it virus free in the future. Well priced too - especially with pick-up and delivery. Good prices too. Don't go anywhere else!

Charles helped me transfer from PC to Mac without any issues! I kept all of my data and just in time - my PC crashed shortly afterward. He's professional, personable and thorough. I recommend him highly.
I recommend this business
