Computer repair is a service that is to be done by a skilled technician as it requires a complete knowledge of each and every part and the function of the system. Now days every service center owns a skilled and experienced technician that sees to it that the computer is repaired in an orderly manner. It is no more a cause of attention for the people to search for technicians. A technician always makes a best of effort to do a PC repair but it is not possible if you don’t have a proper tool kit. Just like a surgeon who requires the best surgical equipments to perform the tasks similarly a technician when doing a PC repair requires the best tools for a successful fix.

There is a full fledged computer repair tool kit that has all the required equipments needed for a proper and satisfactory computer repair service. We can divide the list of tools into two basic categories:

Hardware Tools: Your hardware is the foundation of the computer and software runs inside it, so it is important to take care of your hardware first and then move on the software. The hardware repair tools are:

1)Anti-static strap: required for avoiding electrostatic discharge.
2) screw driver.
3) A can of compressed air to clean the keyboard
4 Pen light and tweezers.
5) Thumb drive, power strips and cable ties.

Software Tools: Software is a very sensitive part of your system and is to be tackled very carefully. One of the most important software tools is the anti-virus program. It is not possible to repair the entire system with just one anti-virus program. So, you would require a set of anti-virus software. Various Anti-virus software that are available are:

1) McAfee: available online, free download.
2) Norton anti-virus
3) AVG as antivirus software

In order to get the best PC repair all these tools mentioned above are just the basic requirements which need to be there to carry out a successful computer service.

    Let’s not forget one other basic tool: great customer service skills. You can have all the tech knowledge in the world, but being able to meet your customers at their level, ease their concerns and go the extra mile for them will go a long way towards helping you differentiate from your competition.

    I remember when I was training in PC repair how we were told we always had to use the anti-static strap.I must say, that in fixing over 15,000 computers so far I’ve never used it once in the field. Just saying…

    I also read a lot of books, and videos on computer repair which said it is best to use an anti-static strap, pad/mate, and bags to store parts. I think preventing static shock with an anti-static strap could make your computer parts like RAM, motherboard, and PCI cards last longer by not shocking them with static if you remove and re-install them a lot.

    Some computer parts like CPU, SSD, and video cards can cost many thousands of dollars, so using an anti-static strap is a easy and good way to prevent them from breaking in the future because of static shock shortening the life of the parts.

    I read the article, and you have some good suggestions. I would like to add that Eset is by far the best computer virus removal program out there in my opinion. We do alot of Denver mac repairs, and denver computer repairs, and we find that using an anti static strap has saved us tons of money in repair costs.

    Thanks for the kind comment.

    I agree an anti-static strap is a good tool for preventing static from destroying computer parts which can cost a lot of money.
