I am having problems with my computer and I need to get it fixed. I get kicked off the net and windows pop up and the big one is my niece shoved a disc in upside down and at an angle in my cd rom and now it will not work. Any one know a cheap and good place to take your computer. Anyone use best buy?

idk where you live but there is geek squad, best buy, fry's electronics, incredible universe (idk if that one exists anymore) I have the same issue sorta, my son jammed a disk in my desk top along w something else? we have no idea, hubby tried to get it out and busted the processor chip. So it'a been broken for about a yr.  we are gonna get it fixed when I get my tax refund next week. i have no clue where we will go to have that done.

When my computer crashed at the first of the month I called Geek Squad and they were outrageously priced! It was $199 if you wanted to take it in yourself and $299 if they came to pick it up. I called around to local businesses and got it fixed and a backup CD for $95. I would suggest calling around if you have any computer places locally.

Do not go to geek squad at all they suck, will end up with more problems, fopr your stuck cd,  If you look at your cd drive you should see a little whole, if you use a paper clip and stick it in that little whole it should open your cd-rom drive for you as for the pop ups what exactly is it sayiong or doing.  I may be able to walk you through it.  also where are you located if in ohio area depending on where u are at I may be able to refer you to someone.

I'd say call around to your PC shops.

I just fix our computer.

May I ask though, when he say you are getting kicked off the net and you keep getting pop-ups, what are the pop ups and when \you get kicked off the net, do you get a message?

Also, do you have an updated anti-virus on your computer?
