Located at 15 Derry St., Showtime Computer offers you computer service choices to fit your need and budget. For years, Showtime Computers has not only offered their customers a state-of-the-art showroom filled with the newest technology for customers to purchase, Showtime has also been providing in-store computer repair services, on-site repair services of your computer at your location, as well as providing their customers with remote technical support. Showtime Computer’s Websites, www.4yourpc. com and www.showtimepc.com, offer the Web- browsing customer many options from which to choose with regards to repair, purchasing, upgrading, or learning. Showtime Computers prides themselves on their ability to provide fast,
efficient, and even one-day service repair for many computer- related concerns. Virus removal, spyware removal, system security, wired or wireless networks, computer setup, operating system
updates, as well as the
replacement of laptop hinges only list a few of the many services provided by Showtime Computers. Hardware upgrades, software upgrades, memory upgrades, installation of flash memory, readers, floppy drives, hard drives, or the replacement of keyboards, mice, and peripherals compliment their repair services. “With our in-store computer repair services, our in-house technical staff will perform a free evaluation, troubleshoot and resolve your computer problems, and make the required repairs. We offer multiple options. Express computer repair service: promises that the system will go on the workbench to be repaired the day it comes in. Generally speaking, express service repairs brought in before noon can be finished same-day, given there are no complications,” commented Fred Ramos, President, Showtime Computers.

Showtime Computers receive a free, five-minute evaluation before any work is performed. During this evaluation, the processor speed, memory, and hard drive size are evaluated. Peripherals such as modems, CD-ROM drives, sound cards, and floppy drives are assessed. In addition, the system is checked for any obvious driver or operating system issues. The evaluation is noted on your service contract. Showtime Computers also offers their customers lease programs, as well as purchase programs. In addition, when ordering merchandise online, Showtime Computer offers their customers the options of having the merchandise shipped to the store for pick-up, shipped directly to the home, or reserved at the store for pick-up.
In speaking with the computer professionals
at Showtime Computers, computer viruses seem to be on the rise. Remember—“when in doubt, X-out” is the safest motto when operating your computer.
department in the area. Unlike other retailers, we don’t send a computer back to the manufacturer, we fix it—fast.”
In addition to their highly trained and professional technical staff that repairs computers, Showtime has an additional staff of dedicated and professional staff that helps customers with their choices of new or refurbished computers, laptops, monitors, printers, software, and accessories. The display aisles of Showtime Computers are stocked with every possible item one could need for their computer needs. From cabling to connectors, cooling fans, CPU accessories, flash memory readers, floppy drives, iPod stuff, mice, memory, and media, Showtime’s exhaustive and comprehensive selections will suit the novice to the professional computer needs. Showtime Computers also will build a computer to any specifications requested by their customers. “Sometimes the plain-vanilla, pre-made, one-size-fits-all computers just don’t provide the level of performance you may desire. Whether you are a serious gamer, want to edit your own video, or just need a more powerful system, Showtime can select the best components for your needs. From monitors and graphic cards to RAM, hard drives, and accessories, Showtime does it all. We even have extended warranty and support packages to keep serving you, even after you take home your new computer.” “Computers are becoming more important in our daily lives. We specialize in providing consultative, preventative, and ongoing support services to help make sure your computer is running smoothly. Our computer consultants take pride in delivering personal, easy-to-understand support that you can trust.”
Computer viruses can enter into your computer
by many different methods. With the advent of Facebook, music downloads, and free games, would-be hackers are just waiting in the weeds as they write software programs to invade your computer hard drive. The most common way in which a virus enters into your computer is by the computer operator opening a program, window, or download for their viewing pleasure. Without your permission, or your knowledge, computer hackers write programs just waiting for computer operators to open a program or window, so that information, which they wish to be read, can be sent from your personal or business e-mail address to your entire e-mail contact list. These massive mailings can not only shut down your computer from operating, but it can also distribute information without your approval. “Showtime has the most knowledgeable and well-trained, in-house technical support
