    It's something I've always done, I've been certified before, Honestly, it's been years though. I think those certs expire, Anyway, People have been bringing me their laptops and computers lately, It all started when I fixed my friends pc, Now people are hunting me down on Facebook Wanting me to fix their pcs,

    I need to know what's fair to charge people. because when it was just a few, I charged them nothing, so now that I have over ten to work on, This shit can't be free anymore.

    Basic Format and Reinstall of windows, 25 Dollars.

    Hardware updates, As in Changing out a CPU or adding memory or changing out PCI cards 30 dollars.

    Basic troubleshooting, something that can be fixed with a setting or a driver change. 15 dollars

    These are all of the basic activities I usually run into. I know these prices aren't top dollar, But I'm not trying to scalp people, I honestly don't need the money, So I'm only charging cause it's the principle of it, A person shouldn't have to work on fifteen computers for free, ya know? So do those prices seem fair? What do you think?

    Way fair. Think Geek is like... 50 dollars just to say hi... and 99 bucks an hour , and then after about an hour and 150 later.... “You need a new PC”

    Seems reasonable. For labor billing I used to break my day up into 15 minute blocks i.e more than 7 minutes = 15. Also charged up to an hour for one way travel. Parts get a markup if you have to source them. Don't forget the spyware to realize the additional blackmail charges later :)
