Hi. Please can anyone recommend a good pc repairs service? I have a dell laptop -long past warranty - and my most IT literate friend tells me it has a software problem. It won't boot, just sits with what is apparently known in IT circles as the Black Screen of Doom. Great. Any recommendations would be v gratefully received. Thanks

There is a place near me on Tanner Street that fix laptops. I have never used them so don't know how good they are. They have been around for a few years though.

I used them, they weren't that great unfortunately, they over charged and tried to fob me off with the wrong cable that had visible wires poking out

I've used the one on OKR. Its on the left hand side heading towards Tesco, near the curtain shop. They have PC's in the windows.

Thank you lovely SE1-ers both for suggestions and Julia for your experience. Pops I have taken your recommendation and said laptop is in their hands now. Will let you know how it goes. Cheers

How apt! After a difficult weekend with my Dell, I have managed to get online using System Restore...but have to do it every time.

I shall await lullylush's news with baited breath!

I too was disappointed with the repair shop on Tanner St - They were late, and charged me 150 + VAT for obtaining and installing a reconditioned part that, I later learned, would have been replaced free with a new one by Apple due to a known fault. I would have expected them to know that, or to have found out and let me know. I also didn't appreciate the ridicule of the man working there when I asked whether I could pay with my company chequebook... Naturally he's entitled to set his terms of payment but if I had that manner with my customers they wouldn't come back either.
