Computer need fixin'? We've compiled a list of places where you can get your computer fixed in Davis and in the surrounding areas. It is recommended that you get a clear agreement as to which services will be performed. For example, if "restoration" or "virus removal" is promised, will your computer be restored to its previous state, so that you can use it immediately? Or will only the data be retained, requiring you to restore your own settings? In addition to computer repair, Davis is home to many other business to business services.
