After paying $80 for a Geek Squad diagnosis at Best Buy I never want to go there again. They scratched up my computer and ended up not being able to find out what was wrong.

Where is the best (and cheapest) place to get your computer diagnosed or repaired? I live in the Maryland Heights and Bridgeton area.

Best and cheapest? Probably the internet. Otherwise, it might be a good idea to specify a general area because it probably isn't worth it to drive across town for some shop that's hardly better than the best guy in your neighborhood.

What's wrong with your computer?

Edit: You might ask //www.city-data.com/forum/computers/ for tips.

Has anyone ever used the folks at MicroCenter? I've purchased machines from them, along with updated components and they always seem to know their stuff. Might be worth checking out. There are also a ton of small computer shops around the metro. I've used Orange Computers years ago, and the guys basically said "that old machine is about dead, and you can't find a power supply that will fit that case economically...cheaper to replace"

That's the thing about computers nowadays, if the problem isn't simple it is probably not worth fixing vs buying a new computer.

I would recommend Total Computer in Creve Couer. They repaired my laptop. They were knowledgeable and fixed the issue.
