Our technician Jessica is working in the Houston computer repair and Dayton computer repair markets. She recently passed on this Open Office tip to a business client.

“One of the company’s employees preferred to use Open Office for word processing rather than Microsoft Office, which the rest of the office was using. By default, Open Office saves documents in its native format, .sxw. It’s always an option to save a document in any format, including .doc. However, the employee wanted the program to save his documents in .doc form by default. We set up his computer to complete the task; here’s a rundown on what we did.”

  1. Click on Tools and then Options.
  2. Open Load/Save on the left side of the window.
  3. Click on General under the Load/Save section.
  4. In the area labeled as “Default file format” near the bottom of the dialog window, select the type of document you want, for example, Text Document for Writer files, in the Document Type drop-down list.
  5. To the right dropdown list labeled as “Always Save As”, change or select the format as “Microsoft Word 97/2000/XP.”

    Even the most common Boston computer repair problem requires a bit of magic administered by one of our technicians.

    Last month, a customer brought in an IBM Thinkpad due to an ‘unmountable_boot_volume’ blue screen of death. He explained that he was shutting down his IBM Thinkpad and accidentally dropped it, albeit just about a foot, while the shutdown was in process.

    We removed his hard drive and re-seated it to make sure it hadn’t loosened in the fall. Then we booted the laptop using a Windows XP Professional CD, done by hitting F12 during the boot-up process and choosing ‘CD’ as the primary boot device. The CD spins and asks the user to hit any key to confirm booting to the CD. After the Windows XP file setup, the system inquires whether the user wants to set up Windows XP, repair a Windows XP installation using the recovery console, or quit. We chose ‘R’ for repair.

    At the recovery console, we typed ‘chkdsk /r’ to check the consistency and files of the hard drive and to repair any bad sectors. After this, in order to fix the ‘unmountable_boot_volume’ it is necessary to type FIXBOOT. When asked if the user is sure that he/she wants to overwrite the previous boot sector, we typed ‘Y’ and ‘ENTER’.

    Problem solved!

    Tip #1: Refrain from letting your toddler eat cereal next to your laptop.

    Tip #1: Refrain from letting your toddler eat cereal next to your laptop.

    To extend the life of your laptop computer or desktop computer, follow these computer maintenance tips from A+ Mobile PC Doctors, the most trusted computer repair company in Boston.

    • To cut down on temperature changes and dust affecting your computer, create a “summer home” for your laptop or desktop that is away from open windows and air vents. Especially now that it is getting warmer, a combination of hot outdoor air, frigid air conditioning, and airborne dust and particles can really mess with your hardware.
    • Uninstall programs that you’re not using instead of just deleting them. This will free up space and will prevent errors from improperly trashing the programs.
    • Reboot. Can you remember the last time you shut down and restarted? Rebooting will reset the RAM and make your computer run faster.
    • Clear your web history to free up memory.

    For Boston computer repair services, A+ Mobile PC Doctors is conveniently located at 316 Newbury Street, #21. We are one of the few Boston computer repair companies that offer onsite computer repair in Boston — we come to you.
