How much will this cost me?!?
Strangely, that's not usually the first question prospective customers ask. The most popular questions are more targeted at the actual service and quality of service before asking about costs. I personally hate to see a motherboard trashed simply over bad capacitors, so I figured this was worthwhile... I am not in this to get rich, however, I'm certainly not going to do it free. My time is as valuable as yours, and I do have a life... So if you're looking for a freebie, you're looking in the wrong place. I hate to sound off like that, but you'd be surprised at some of the free-loaders I encounter.

Express Service is now available!
There are instances where the turnaround time for standard service is too long for some users. When a repair order is sent to me, they are taken in the order they arrive. If there's a backlog of repairs, the turnaround time can exceed 15 days. I now offer Express Repair Service!! Express Repair Service is an additional $25.00 per unit on top of the standard repair cost.
When Express Service is requested, instead of your board being taken in the order of arrival, they are repaired within 1 day of arrival. Burn-in is also reduced from 3 days to 1 day. With Express Service, your board will be in my possession no more than 3~4 working days for 1~3 boards (weekends/holidays excluded). Express Service is completely optional. You can indicate Express Service when you complete and submit your repair request form. To request motherboard repair, Click Here.

Payment forms accepted:
I accept payment in a number of forms. The easiest way is to simply enclose a check or money order along with your board when you send it in. If you choose not to do it that way, I can also accept credit card payments through Paypal if that would be better for you. Paypal is an online payment service. It's commonly used for Ebay transactions, and is very secure and reliable. Please note, your payment must have cleared BEFORE I will ship your board back, that's why I prefer a personal/company check or money order enclosed with the board. This way your check will have posted and cleared while I'm servicing your board. This will speed up the return of your hardware.
All the costs above are in US Dollars. Shipping may be higher, depending on where you are, but I am more than happy to service your board if you're outside the USA!
