I will diagnose your computer, and provide a quote for repair for free.
However, I sometimes find the only way to diagnose a computer results in its being fixed. (For example, confirming that dirt in the computer is causing the problem requires me to open up an clean the computer.) In these cases, there is a $20 cost for diagnosis and repair.
