The Need for Computer Repair in Colorado Springs

With the ever-increasing population of Colorado Springs, computer repair is becoming more in demand than ever.  With over 100 computer repair shops in Colorado Springs, there is plenty of work for all the shops.  Although nobody is becoming a millionaire with computer repair in Colorado Springs, it’s enough to make a good living.  Ever since the lockdowns of COVID, the computer business has become essential for everyday living.  We use computers for work, school, social media, email, video games and watching tv.  Follow me as I explore how each of these computer needs has evolved in the past decade and how computer repair has been affected.

Computer Repair in Colorado Springs and Computers for Work

Almost every person in Colorado Springs uses their computer, in some way, for work.  For example, cashiers use POS systems that are 100% computer based.  In fact, most cash registers these days are computer-based.  If you are a teacher, then you use your computer for lesson plans and online teaching.  Even doctors and nurses use computers to record ailments and treat patients.  Additionally, accounting professionals and lawyers are using more digital records than paper records these days.  Insurance agencies and car salesmen are using online databases to record and keep track of sales.  Almost every single professional uses a computer these days.  The problem with relying on computers for work, is that there is a large exchange of information.  This large exchange can cause hard drive failure and RAM issues, which need to be immediately resolved.  Such issues have created a great demand for computer repair in Colorado Springs.

Computer Repair in Colorado Springs and Computers for School

The demand for computers in schools has become so great that schools provide computers to students today.  In fact, the computers provided are extremely unreliable and require constant maintenance or replacement.  Unfortunately, “student computers” are extremely cheap and break easily.  The cases are flimsy, the screens are low in quality and even the built-in hard drives are inadequate.  Although these computers can often save a family from needing to buy a child a computer, the computers provided by the schools need constant repairs.   Typically, these repairs are in the form of laptop screen repairs, laptop keyboard repairs, and recovery lost data.  Most repairs are the result of neglect or mishandling by students.  However, this student carelessness has created a great need for computer repair in Colorado Springs.  If you are a student, then be sure to take extra care of your laptop computer to avoid being charged for the damage by the school.

Computer Repair in Colorado Springs and Computers for Video Games

The person who invented video games is my hero.  I’m not sure who it was, but I LOVE you.  Video games are a wonderful relaxer and great to pass the time.  Today, kids play electronic games for approximately 6 hours, while adults play an average of 4 hours per day.  With that said, gaming computers require maintenance every 6 months for such heavy gaming.  In fact, DML Computer Repair recommends that you replace the thermal compound on your PC every 6 months if you are a daily gamer.  If you have not replaced the thermal paste on your computer in a while, then be sure to do it immediately.  In case you don’t feel comfortable doing this yourself, then contact a shop for computer repair in Colorado Springs.

Computer Repair in Colorado Springs and Computers for Social Media

Social media is the bane of my existence.  In other words, I lack the appreciation for tick tocks and YouTube shorts that everyone else seems to have.  I still believe that calling my mom on a landline is the best social media in the world.  If you read my Mother’s Day special a few years ago, then you know that I’m very close to my mom.  Although I own a Facebook account and a YouTube account (for business purposes) I don’t leave room for them in my life.  It’s probably rare to hear a man in his 20’s completely stay away from social media; but, I feel that it is cold and impersonal.  People do and say things on social media that they would never say to someone’s face.  With that said, the rest of the world uses social media as a part of their everyday life.  The kids share tick tocks with their friends.  The Youth like to post their entire life on YouTube to share with the world.  Even dad sends the occasional meme through Facebook messenger and shares it with the entire family.  Although social media doesn’t have special computer requirements, it does require a phone, tablet, or computer to use.  The excessive use of social media has created a need for computer repair in Colorado Springs.  When people spend 4-8 hours on their devices every day, then those devices will “wear and tear” much faster, requiring repair or replacement quickly.

Computer Repair in Colorado Springs and Computers for Email & Important Communications

Have you ever shown up at a potential employer and they wanted you to apply for a job online?  Or maybe a teacher sent you an assignment via email?  These are examples of important communications that occur electronically.  As a matter of fact, most people have become so reliant on emails, that they use them as frequently as texts.  Additionally, some individuals read, write and reply to emails every hour.  Although it is nice to receive these communications and have the convenience of applying for a job from the comfort of your own home, this does not come with its disadvantages.  For example, a very slow computer that crashes in the middle of a job application.  This simple action can lock you out of the employment application and you may no longer be able to get the job.  If you think that’s terrible, what if you were offered a job via email and did not see it?  These days, emails have become almost as important as texts, which is why computers, phones, and tablets have become an essential part of our daily lives.  All of these factors have contributed to the ever-increasing demand of the PC repair world.

Computer Repair in Colorado Springs and Computers for Streaming & Entertainment

The other day my neighbor was talking about their cable bill when my sister asked, “Dominic, what’s cable”?  I was astounded.  My 14-year-old sister had no idea what a cable box looked like or what it did.  Our mom raised us to stream and keep electronic copies of tv shows and movies.  We never had cable in our lives.  I’m coming to find out that this is becoming the norm for the rest of the world.  Suddenly, everyone is “streaming” their favorite movie or tv show.  Streaming is another reason that computer repair in Colorado Springs has become essential.  Computers need to be healthy to be able to stream properly and this only occurs with regular computer maintenance.  Regular computer maintenance is one of the many services that keeps local PC repairs shops busy and business booming.
