Why Choose Central Computers?

  • Experience: With a legacy dating back to 1986, we boast extensive expertise in building and repairing computers.
  • Affordability: Benefit from our competitive rates, made possible by the high volume of repairs we handle across our five Bay Area locations.
  • Convenience: Our strategic presence in San Mateo, Santa Clara, Sunnyvale, Newark, and San Francisco ensures accessibility for all your tech needs.

Repair Policy

  • To initiate a repair, a $29 non-refundable deposit is required. This deposit is deducted from the final repair cost. Please note, flat rates do not apply to LCD, battery, motherboard replacements, or special order parts. If your device necessitates a new motherboard or LCD screen, we'll provide a quote for your approval before proceeding with the repair.

3-Month Warranty

Our repair warranty addresses two scenarios:

  1. If the original issue reoccurs due to replaced components, both parts and labor are covered at no extra charge.
  2. If the original issue resurfaces but is unrelated to the replaced components, labor is covered, while parts will require payment.
    For all other issues, both parts and labor costs apply.

Additional Note: For liquid spill damages, we offer a 1-week warranty, even if the damage is repairable.
