Computer Repair Richmond, KY
Mitek Computers is ranked one of the TOP 3 Computer Repair Services at Thumbtack in the Berea and Richmond Ky area. Getting rankings this high is almost impossible unless you have some of the best service in the area. In fact we are ranked highly in ALL technical categories at Thumbtack and Angies list as well. These are real rankings and reviews from real people.
Windows 7 PC's Available
The difference between custom builders like Mitek Computers and big box stores is very evident. Mitek Computers can still offer our customers systems loaded with Windows 7, whereas big box stores like Best Buy or Office Depot can only offer systems pre-loaded with Windows 8.

Unfortunately, many current users just do not like Windows 8 and therefore are forced into purchasing a computer with an operating system they really do not want.

At Mitek Computers we can custom build your computer loaded with Windows 7 no problem at all. As of September 2013, we also have access to a few models Lenovo laptops and desktops pre-loaded with Windows 7. Better hurry however... they are going FAST!
WE PAY CASH
WE PAY CASH for your broken later model laptops and desktops. Broken screen, bad hard drives, missing keys, adapters, or even cracked plastic we will PAY YOU CASH for your broken laptop. We pay more than any pawn shop in the area.

In certain instances we will buy your desktop as well BUT it must be a VERY recent model.

Broken IPhone or IPad? We repair them and also buy them if you want to sell your broken unit. WE DO NOT buy water damaged items.

Please note you must provide a state photo ID or drivers license before we buy any items at all. You MUST be over 18 years old.Laptops should be no more than 2-3 years old, and be loaded with Vista at minimum.

If you are not sure what you have call us first at 859-985-0050 or bring it by our shop.In most instances IF it is within our specs we will make a CASH offer.

Mitek Computers only promotes software on our website that we have tested thoroughly. If we have it here, we believe in it, and it does what it should do.

None of the online Fix My PC type programs will ever replace the need for a TRUE technician BUT if you need to test your system right now, this is the one to use.

After speaking with Steve, and winning a GREAT free banner, he is our only source for printed vinyl banners these days. Give these guys a try. You will be amazed at the quality and their prices on printed full color banners.


Mitek Computers Sales, Service, Repairs

Mitek Computers LLC, located at 928 West Jefferson St, in our hometown of beautiful Berea, Ky has been in business since January 2001. We are now in our 13th year of business and we are extremely proud of the fact that we are still around, while several other computer shops have come and gone in that same time. We know we have the best technicians in the area, and we know that we do things for our customers that no other business would or could do. That is what separates Mitek Computers from our competition, and that is what keeps us going strong year after year.

We work on your normal everyday home computers, home and business notebooks, high end business workstations and servers, and repair more systems in a week than most people will ever see in their lifetimes. We repair tablets, many brands of smart-phones, and offer our customers some of the best custom designed computers ever. We are truly proud of the fact that we offer Lenovo brand desktops, laptops, workstations and servers as our main OEM brand. We have been partnered with Lenovo for over three years now, and we have YET to have one single piece of hardware failure on any system we have sold.

In fact we are partnered with several companies such as Microsoft, Lenovo (originally IBM), Asus, Western Digital, Avast, Surfright, MalwareBytes and too many more to mention. We are a member in good standing with ACRBO (Association of Computer Repair Business Owners) and have an A+ Better Business Bureau rating.

At Mitek Computers, we not only repair systems, we design and build high end business workstations and servers, we install wired and wireless networks, we set up your servers and workstations, we backup and restore your files, and we even install your proprietary software onsite or remotely. We are FILE RECOVERY specialists and can save you hundreds if not thousands of dollars on file recovery. Whether you are a home or business user, you can rest assured that Mitek Computers can full fill the needs of your home or business.

We make service calls, we pick up and drop off computers, and we even repair tablets, IPads, and many brands of smartphones such as Iphones and Galaxy's. Without a doubt Mitek Computers is one of the most versatile computer shops in the area, bar none. We can design a solution for your company no matter what business you are in. In fact. we do pretty much everything computer related.

We are normally open from 11:00am through 7:00pm Monday through Friday and will work weekends if a customer needs a special time to have a system repaired as long as we have 48 hours notice. We do emergency calls for ANY business day or night, and have the ability to remotely solve many software issues without ever leaving our shop or home. Some days unfortunately we have service calls, and there will not be a technician onsite at our shop. We can be reached any time via our mobile phone at 859-893-4954 ... if we do not answer simply leave a message and we will get back with you within a short while. You can text us via the same phone number (859-893-4954) or email us directly at using the email address at the top of this page. Email or text is usually the fastest way to get in touch with us in an emergency situation.

We have now added a Support Ticket system to our website in the lower right hand corner of our pages. Simply click on the tab, fill in your information, and submit the ticket. One of our technicians will get in touch with you shortly. You can explain as much or as little as you want, and can even upload screenshots of any problem so we can take a look. Just remember more times than not it is much better to bring your computer into our shop. You never need an appointment and in many cases we can start working on it the very same day. There is also a small database/knowledge base inside the ticketing system that helps with many problems we commonly see and maybe can be of some help to you.

Mitek Computers will pay you cash for your broken late model laptop and some desktops. As far as laptops are concerned we really do not care if the screen is broken, the battery or power adapter is missing, the keyboard is missing keys, or even if the system has cracked plastic. What we DO expect is a system that will power on at minimum. We normally will not make an offer on ANY laptop that is over 2-3 years old, and usually look for the system to be running Vista or Windows 7 at minimum. Windows XP machines are just about too old for our purpose.

We will buy desktops BUT only if they meet certain criteria and have at MINIMUM Windows 7 as the original OS with a GOOD READABLE COA. We will buy them IF you have the complete system, or we will purchase just the tower. We do pay more than any local pawn shop, or what you can get on Ebay or Amazon in most circumstances.

In all reality it is best to simply bring the system you wish to sell by our shop and let is take a look. This is the way we purchase 60% of our refurbished or parts systems. So browse our site, become familiar with our services and products, and give us a call or send us an email when you need us. If you are looking for a quote on service, or a custom designed gaming or multimedia system, just give us a call or visit our contact form or support tab. We want your business. We want you to tell your friends about Mitek Computers. We certainly want to be around for the next 13 years and can only hope that it will be as good or better than our first 13 years.

Mitek's Favorite Computer Repair Articles

  • Windows 8. Love It Or Hate It, It's Here To Stay!

    Update: Windows 8.1 Preview Now Available for download FREE to Windows 8 users.

    Windows 8 has not been the game changer Microsoft and computer builders were hoping for. A few people love it, while the majority of desktop and laptop owners hate it. In our opinion it works great on touch screens and tablets, BUT (and that's a BIG BUT) we long for the days of the Windows 7 look and feel. Downgrades to Windows 7 are at an all time high. Computer sales worldwide are down, and whether it is because of Windows 8 or just the economy in general no one is saying.

    By the way Mitek Computers still offers Windows 7 on ANY of our custom built systems, and we have a LOT of Lenovo branded systems that we can procure with Windows 7 as well. Better hurry however, they won't last long!

  • Speakeasy Speed Test

    Want to know EXACTLY what speed your ISP is REALLY giving you as far as bandwidth? Afraid they may be ripping you off (Most of them do). Do not use THEIR speed test when they tell you to. Tell them you want to use this one to get the real low down on your TRUE internet speed and not some bloated speed they shove down your throat by sending you to THEIR speed test. You need Java for this test... Works great and is VERY accurate.


  • Best Free Online Virus Scanner

    Believe it or not, there really are some decent online virus scanners out there. Granted, most of us should already have a GOOD antivirus and anti-spyware program installed, but more and more we see numerous computers coming through our door that have nothing installed, or if something is installed it has usually expired. Try this online scanner if you think you have a virus or malware.
