Like doctors of old, technicians from Burnham & Laing Computer Services make house calls to tend to ailing computers. Once onsite, they troubleshoot the problem as quickly as possible and get straight to work on the solution. That can include a speedy cleanup of the hard drive or the removal of viruses and spyware. Replacing and upgrading parts are among their many skills, too, as are software installation and computer consultations.
