There seems to be scams in just about every industry including the computer repair world. However, this article isnt a piece on shady computer repair technicians, this article is about scams that target computer technicians.. Here are two common scams against computer technicians that you should watch out fo.

The repair company that explained this wheeze to us said it found out about the con when a frantic victim phoned up asking whether it had collected his computer. But as in everything, an evolution in computer repair is taking place and no longer can I sit home and work on a Dell Dimension 8400 PC (and expect to make a living like I did years ago). In this day and age, to be successful as a computer repair technician I’m almost obligated to be proficient in at least four main areas of hardware repair.

But there are more complex problems that require the expertise of a computer repair technician. Fixing a computer on your own might seem practical; but, in the long run, paying for an expert technician makes more sense. Another factor that can complicate the process of computer repair is the fact that issues affect either the software or hardware.

The paper studies computer repair technician as a career choice. The paper shows that the demand for computer repair technicians is great due to the increasing numbers of computers in use today. It studies the courses of study for people wanting to become technicians and. The next thing to ask from a potential computer repair technician before using his services is to ask about his previous experience.

The main characteristic which will directly indicate the expertise of a professional computer technician is that he will be able to pinpoint the exact cause of problem simply by taking a look over the situation. If a computer technician cannot fix your computer in front of you, you may want to reconsider using their service. Keep in mind, some computer repair services like a re-installation may take some time, and while they wait for the computer to do its thing, they fix their other customer’s computers.

This week I encountered a computer repair job that went bad. I’ve had experience dealing with jobs gone bad in the past and I have learnt how to avoid them in most cases. However, I think this one was unavoidable. Heres my story.

I get a phone call from the client wanting me to go out onsite because computer is running very slow. I mean, a technician should be sticking to his job. Hopefully, a technician (a good technician) is going to be busy enough that he’s going to be in, fix the problem, and out. He’s not going to go spelunking on your hard drive for things that he shouldn’t really be looking for.

On the other hand, we do hear it about from time to time. Here are 50 terms all computer repair technicians should know once they have completed a Computer Technician Networking Specialist program. Computer Networking & Repair Definitions. Computer networking is the term for a set of computers connected together that share resources.

The most common computer network is the internet.

  • I’m 55 and built my first PC a couple months ago. When it posted was a great feeling so I had to build a second one. It posted also.:)

  • Uncle Carey’s Windows Optimizer???? Could you please tell me more? Also, if I need advice in building a computer (for my 86 year old mother) how would I contact you or do you do builds for others and/or just for the show? How do you find a case (smaller mid-tower) that has great filters on them so they are easy to clean? Be quiet! Dark Base 700 but it is too large, and front filter would be too hard for my mother to access but it is a nice case. One more question, how does one set up an SSD drive for the operating system only and either use a mechanical hard drive for saving stuff or another SSD drive for storage? Great videos!

  • This is a great video, and hits so close to home for me. I used to work as a perma-temp contractor for a contracting company that sent me to work to a Southeastern energy conglomerate. I was starting out, and doing IT Helpdesk. The entire company was so contractor-happy, after they merged with another energy company in 2006, things got even worse. No benefits, no chance of promotions. I was there for 7 years total, in all. I ended up leaving because from what I saw, they used our dept. as a way for wanna-be managers to get their feet wet, and they all had these ideas about how to ‘change the game,’ but ended up just turning the screws on us just so they can get their bonuses. When I finally found a better job and called to give my notice, the POC at the contracting company got all angry, and I wasn’t even being rude or anything. But then another guy called me to ask me what they can do to make me stay on. And at that point, I was tired of that place, so I gave them a ridiculous hourly rate I knew that they’d never accept. So then they told me that the money is not there, and I left.

    My new job was also for a city government, but was contracted through two separate companies. Luckily, I was contracted through the company with a more thoughtful owner. But yes, at first, I was promised a pay increase after 6 months, but then excuses were given. I was then asked if I had any customers who gave me kudos. They wanted to see if I was actually worth a raise. I thought to myself, It’s been six months and I’m still here, so obviously I’m doing something right. Nevertheless, after a major event hosted by that city I worked for, I asked for a raise and got it, even more than I thought I was going to get.

    All was fine until some years later. Suddenly, the supervisor that replaced the last one, who was also named Lonnie (who was okay), somehow ended up taking over the service contract from my old boss. Things just went downhill from there. I asked for a raise, and did not hear anything back. Stress piled up, and I found a new job and gave my notice. When I did, I asked the supervisor-now also the new boss-if I would be paid the balance of my accrued vacation time, which was 80 hours by that time. The supervisor stalled, and evaded. I was told they ‘have to check.’ I’m like, you’re the boss. You should be able to tell me. It was clear what her answer was. But I was left waiting. I gave them another day, and after I did not get an answer, I came in in the morning, cleaned out my desk, threw away ALL information and documentation I made, reimaged both my workstations, and left. It was sad for me to end things like this because that job was one of the best I’ve had. But when you like your job and you want to do it well, but a supervisor with emotional issues is deliberately making things more difficult and stressful, then there is only one thing to do. A year earlier, that same manager told me not to service a particular kind of hardware that was no longer under warranty. When I did this, a high-up boss complained. Then my supervisor, who told me to do this, threw me under a bus because of the ‘way I said it to the customer.’ And thing is, that I didn’t even agree with the decision about not servicing the hardware, and felt bad saying to people that I worked with for some years now, and who I had a good relationship with, ‘no.’ I knew it would cause issues.

    One of the main reason why US corporations stay profitable is by short-changing workers. If they didn’t, their coffers would be maybe half as full. It is exploitation of the highest order. It is why US law favors employers. It is why regulations and any agencies responsible for worker safety and welfare are being gutted and underfunded. It is all done deliberately. Yet, these companies get big tax breaks, pay no taxes, and also get billions in all sorts of hand-outs from the federal govt. The way they act in rgeards to worker treatment needs to be illegal. It is a sickness.

    When it comers to individual users, I had this old guy who insisted on using 720K floppies because that’s what he worked with when he retired in 1990. And no matter how many times I showed him how to use a flash drive, he just couldn’t get it. Most of my calls were for ‘how to’ issues. One day, he calls me to come over to fix his PC. I arrive, and the PC is all messed up. Drivers missing, 16 color desktop, and a pirated version of Office 2007 installed. Now, I had him go out and buy a copy of Office 2003 a few years before, but somehow someone installed a pirated version on his PC. So I fixed his PC and left. When I called him about being paid for my last visit, he told me that I messed up his computer, and that I ‘remoted into it’ illegally, and that he does not owe me anything. I sent him a very strongly-worded email and I was done with him. As far as not getting paid, I got that money back from refurbishing and selling his old PC that I still had that he didn’t need. What I think happened, is that someone else did something to his PC, screwed it up, and blamed it on me.

    And all this took place in the last 10 years.

    So long story short, I ended up emigrating from the US to another country. Here, workers get treated way better. Yearly raises, 100% union representation (that actually does something), universal healthcare so I can go about my life with a piece of mind, and all sorts of nice benefits that actually make me feel a little strange. But morale and motivation is good, and I was told by the head of the dept. that if workers are happy the company does better. That was a hit in the face for me. What employer in the US would say this to you?

  • Love computers? Hate sex?

    How did you know, Nathan? I’ve always loved computers and I’ve always been disgusted at the concept of sex.

  • Are you shore the Verge didn’t build or tamper with this computer Wonder if when he tried to install more ssd’s one of them had win10 on it and when he tried to boot the computer computer got confused with 2 boot drives and corrupted both ssd’s have seen it happen before by accident

  • To start I’m assuming you keep records on each build you do, my advice if you are not would be to take several pictures of the completed build to give you a reference for possible dealings with you costumers in the future, other than that I appreciate your video as I found it most informative, keep up the great work.

  • Not really a “repair guy” thing, but my mom’s laptop stopped working, so she borrowed mine for a few days.

    After she returned it, I noticed she didn’t log out of her email.

    Learned some stuff about my parents that day. Stuff I can never unlearn.

  • This has been one of your best live videos Carey I missed it live but really enjoyed listening today and I will defiantly be stealing your answer to “do you miss windows XP ” question ��

  • The email contacts issue at Intel, were you thinking of the old Exchange, or Exchange32 email client Application that came free with Windows 95/98? I also seem to recall something called MSN Email? I do know there was something like that I used to use a whole lot for technical news groups back then too.

    Also an old helpful tips? At least up till Outlook 2010 (I think?), when you’d have crazy issues like multiple duplicate email folders or inboxes and could never get rid of them, the secret was to exit Outlook, and seach the C drive for the file Exchange32.exe and start it. It was basically Outlook, but had a ton more features and tweaks. One of which, it was the ONLY way to remove all those pesky duplicate inboxes!

  • Very diplomatic of you. I’ve had customers that have deleted things they shouldn’t, then take it out on the machine. So, good job.

  • A desktop that was used in the garage and had a HUGE nest of spiders in it, good thing I’m not afraid of spiders. My co workers on the other hand freaked out lol

  • I thoroughly enjoyed this video ‘ it was really wonderful, to hear how you related to problem you faced! Thanks for making this video! I. Thought you did a good job.

  • lol lucky I had 1 from my old 1060 pc’s rgb remote yea it was the battery in my situation o this was just a few hrs before i seen this lol

  • I actually sat here and listened to 2:41:52 of this. Thanks for sharing that. Thankfully I was bumming today to be able to listen to this. Was interesting. Thanks.

  • I RMA’d a leaky Enermax TR4 360 cooler along with the motherboard that it damaged. They told me if they could verify the motherboard damage was due to the cooler leaking, they would warranty the damaged components (board and power supply). After 4 weeks they sent the same board back to me (claiming they found no fault with it) along with a v2 cooler and those same cheap headphones. I’m trying to encourage fellow tech enthusiasts not to purchase or use Enermax products. They do not stand behind their products and choosing to use their products in your build can be a very costly mistake.

  • What is this “XTRA -PC ” I have made some enquires and everyone tells me it is a wast of money and a scam. Why are they allowed to perzist with it, is it rubbish or not?


  • There is a small, and mostly academic (in the sense that it doesn’t make much material difference) distinction to be made about the CMOS and the BIOS settings. For the last decade or so, the battery is used only to keep the Real Time Clock going. The bios settings are stored on non-volatile flash ram these days and not on a CMOS chip. The flash ram can keep its settings without a voltage to keep its settings alive, it’s just that when a voltage is not detected this is a signal to the BIOS to revert to defaults.

    As I said, the distinction is slight because the net effect is the same. The point though is that removing the battery doesn’t force the settings to be lost. The board doesn’t necessarily have to be programmed to comply with what now becomes a request to revert to defaults. There may be another step needed such as a DIP switch flip or jumper move involved.

    I am learning so much from your channel have been watching you now for almost a year. I learn much that I did not know and you Carey are helping inspire me to open my own PC repair business thought not right away yet. I have to learn much about business management/admin yet.

  • A very polite compute tech…I watch another channel by a former professional repair tech for electronics and every time he finds something like this he rants and raves forever about it. I still watch his videos as he is a very good tech but I can’t stand all of crying about every little thing he finds wrong.
    I see Carey is above all that.

  • The one about poo art reminds me of other kinds of bodily fluid art and all of it is gross in my mind. Really why? why would you use yours and/or others bodily fluids to make a picture?

  • I’m a new viewer to your channel and I want to tell you that this is the best YT video I’ve ever watched. I felt everything you expressed in this video. I’ve gone through everything you have expressed and probably more. This was well articulated and executed. I’m not alone. These experiences make you grow up quickly and turn you into a different person. Nothing has changed in the corporate world and the politics its actually worst.

  • I take all back, it was the customer who had to much coca to drink, coke with rum or what have you, 7 and 7 you know. Any way, do the honorable thing, which your about to with a lecture, and fix it, send it back with a copy of SEE “my video post on Your computer” with a bill for extra work.

  • Hello just watched one of your videos on upgrading laptops. I am impressed. I will be watching a lot of your videos. I have been building my own computers and I expect to learn a lot from you.

  • Enjoyed watching the whole video, thanks for sharing your experiences! Too bad I can’t like the video multiple times, really made me laugh on a couple of occasions.:)
