Has your Windows laptop slowed down to a crawl? Have you suddenly lost all your data? Perhaps you accidentally dropped your laptop and the screen is now ruined?
Dave’s Computers is here to help. As a business that is native to Somerset County, our service in the county is something we take immense pride in. We are particularly excited about the rapid growth the township of Montgomery is experiencing.
As the fastest growing town in our county, we want to do our bit to make sure the small businesses and households of the town continue to prosper without being bogged down by IT issues.

Onsite, As-You-Wait Computer Repair in Montgomery, NJ
We realize that computers are central to the systems our clients depend on for work. Whether yours is a dental clinic, a restaurant, a flower shop, a convenience store, or a butcher shop, you need your computer to operate your inventory management, POS system, order management, and other important day-to-day tasks. If your computer breaks down, your business wouldn’t run the same.
It is for this reason that Dave’s Computers has expedited the process to repair a computer. For all known computer issues, we offer same-day and, at times, as-you-wait computer repair services for our clients in Montgomery, NJ.
Our computer repair services in Montgomery aren’t just prompt. We have made sure they are as convenient as possible, too. Instead of you making the drive to our computer repair store in Hillsborough, we will come to your office or home in Montgomery and attend to the repair onsite, while you wait (or while you proceed with your chores or tasks, if you wish).

Common PC Hardware Issues We Fix Daily
Your computer may fail for any one of many reasons. The hardware may fail due to power supply issues. Even more permanent damage can come as a result of errors on the computer’s disk. The consequence of this is that some issues may take longer to diagnose and fix.
But we always get to the problem affecting your PC. We find that many of the hardware issues we attend to result from physical damage to the computer:
- A dropped laptop that no longer powers up
- A laptop that malfunctions after a liquid spill
- Intermittent network connectivity when you know the router is working fine
- “Hard drive not found” error message after you accidentally dropped your PC
- Faulty laptop charging ports
- PC powers off on its own
- Broken laptop screens
The advice we give with most physical damage cases is to bring the laptop in for repairs instead of persisting with use, which can only cause further damage. Take a liquid spill, for example. Unless you are a qualified technician, you can’t satisfactorily handle the problem without risking more permanent moisture damage.
As soon as you spill wine, fruit juice, or any fluid on your laptop keyboard, switch it off immediately and turn the machine upside down (battery side up). This will help drain some of the liquid out. Then call us for help.
If it’s more convenient, you can bring the PC into our computer repair store in Hillsborough. Resist the temptation to switch it on to see if there has been any damage, as that will cause further problems.
Software Side PC Issues We Commonly Fix
Aside from physical damage, PC failures due to internal hardware crashes are rare. Most computer issues are a result of OS software and application errors. Besides those, drivers for peripherals are also culpable in many PC failures.
Thankfully, most software issues aren’t as hard to troubleshoot or to repair. Here are the common issues we solve every day in Montgomery and other towns in South Jersey:
- The laptop does not function as before after an OS upgrade by the owner
- “Operating system not found” error message
- PC overheats and randomly switches off
- Windows Blue Screen of Death
Whether you are running Windows or a Mac, we have technicians who can isolate most computer failure causes and get your machine working perfectly again. Regardless of whether your computer had given you warnings that something was wrong or the failure was sudden, we have a solution for what is ailing your computer.
A Network of Certified, Highly Qualified Computer Repair Technicians
We have highly experienced computer repair technicians stationed in Montgomery who will make a beeline for your home or office as soon as we receive your SOS for emergency computer repair. We have found that in many cases the repair goes faster and more painlessly if we just come to where you are.
Our computer repair technicians have the experience and expertise to attend to the majority of IT issues our clients call in with every day. They will attend to these onsite, without a need to bring the device to the computer repair lab in Hillsborough.

Computer Virus and Malware Removal in Montgomery, NJ
If you have been hit by a virus or are dealing with a malware attack, we truly understand what you are going through. We know how rough it can be. Sadly, not everyone uses their computer for good. But never think you are alone or that the situation cannot be salvaged. We are here to minimize the damage and help you get your PC or IT systems running normally again.
Unfortunately, by the time you notice you have been hit by malware, the damage may already have been done. They probably would have already stolen your email and online banking account login details. The hope is that you notice it soon enough, before much damage is done. To mitigate against viruses and malware:
- Always keep your antivirus software up to date
- Do not open suspicious-looking emails
- Avoid unsafe websites (Google now gives warnings when you attempt to visit unsafe sites)
- Be careful with the thumb and other external drives you connect to your PC
Signs That Hint at a Possible Malware Infection
There are many signs that hint at a possible malware attack. Remember though, cybercriminals are getting even more sophisticated as technology advances, so just be vigilant and look out for any irregular activity on your PC. Here are some common signs that show possible malware infection:
- A browser home screen that suddenly changes on its own
- A browser that sends you to websites you never requested
- Requests for personal information you don’t normally get when you try to access your online banking account
- Pop-up messages that ask for payments on purchases you never made
Seek Help the Moment You Notice Possible Malware Infection
We can never say this enough: take immediate action the moment you notice you may be dealing with a malware infection. Before you seek our help, we advise to log off all your online accounts.
If you operate an online banking account, visit your bank and check your account immediately. Should you notice any suspicious activity or purchases you did not authorize, ask the bank to put a freeze on your account.
When you bring your PC in, we will do thorough scans to remove the offending virus or malware. But we don’t stop there. We proceed to install new and up-to-date software to ward off any future virus, malware, or spyware infection.

At Dave’s Computers, all our repairs carry a ##day guarantee. We are not afraid to stand behind our work. If a repair we carry out doesn’t last as long as expected (which rarely happens), we ask you to bring the computer back so we can make sure the repair is redone (this time permanently and at no extra charge).
If you bring your computer in and we find that the damage will be too costly to repair, we will let you know. If you take our recommendation and pull the repair before we have done any work, you will not pay anything. The diagnostics are always on us.
Here is a recent review by one of our thrilled clients:
“I emailed Dave’s late one night and got a response! From there a back and forth with pictures and description of our laptop’s issues started and a few days later we dropped the laptop off for repair at an excellent price! My son was thrilled that what we thought might require a new computer only needed a simple fix. THANKS Dave!!”
Now, for many of the repairs clients call in, we usually send out a technician to attend to your computer onsite. But for some repairs, like a hard drive repair that requires a lab environment, you may have to bring the computer into our repair store in Hillsborough, NJ. It’s a short 14-minute drive from Montgomery. Here is how to get to Dave’s Computers’ computer repair store:
