Solved Do I need a new computer

Post by sbranfman on Wed Jan 28, 2009 3:28 pm

Hi!

So, I went to a computer shop yesterday to buy a new fan for my computer because mine stopped working. When I was there, the man assisting me said it is very complicated to put in, and that he would be put it in for me and charge me $75 for the whole thing. I contemplated it a bit. But, then said I am about to get a new computer anyway, so maybe I'll just keep my $75 and put it towards a new computer.

I have a Dell Inspiron 600m, I got it in 2005. It runs very slow and I know I have viruses and back doors and such. I told him this and he looked at my computer and said I did not need a new computer, that he would fix this one to make it run like new. And that he would charge me somewhere between $100 and $150 to fix my computer and put in the fan. He said new computers these days don't run well, and I'd be best off keeping this one and having him work on it.

What do you recommend that I do? Is he telling me the truth or is he just trying to make money?

Thank you!
Sarah

Why do comp shops talk so much crap these days, honestly, it's pathetic.

Backdoors CANNOT be fixed without formatting, and losing all of your data (assuming you haven't back anything up)
NEW computer DON'T run well? what is he smoking? LMBO or ROFL My new computer runs so much better than my old one.

I'd save your money for a new machine.
