Welcome to Rent-A-Geek

We are based in Mullumbimby & offer on site computer repair, tuition and advice in your home or office in the Byron Shire (& a bit further) & carry a good supply of spare parts; in the vast majority of cases we can get you up & running again on the spot (but hopefully not in circles).
We work on PC's & Laptops running Microsoft Windows (Windows XP through to the latest version) & Debian based Linux machines (e.g. Ubuntu, Mint, Mepis) but can usually help you out if you're running a 'more exotic' Linux version & are stuck - & NO i do not work on Mac's :P (feel free to ask why if you have an hour spare - but what would i know)

  • What do we do?

    Picture of the Rent-A-Geek van We offer 2 types of service.
    Firstly a mobile PC repair & diagnostic service (ie we come to your home or office), the job is booked for a time & day that suits you, fix the problem & charge a call out fee plus any time spent on the repair past the first 1/2 hour assuming it can be fixed on site, if it cannot we take it away & return it fixed & reconnect everything as was.
    The second is a drop off service, you drop your PC/Laptop off to my workshop .... read more
  • Plain English

    Picture showing a graphics card being cleaned While I have been known to run on a bit, i always try to give explanations in plain English (at least to those who want to know). I find it very annoying when people try to hide the meaning of their words by using unnecessarily complex technical jargon, so i try my best to avoid this by using analogies i think the customer will understand (comparison to cars/bikes is always a fav) although i do have a few customers who only want to know what to write on the cheque.
  • Opening Hours
