We are proud to be a part of the Carlsbad Village’s awesome atmosphere at Chip & Bytes, but a lot of our best clients come from Oceanside, CA!
All of our services: computer repair, laptop repair, virus removal, data recovery, and iPhone repair can be conveniently access by taking Coast Highway South, hanging a left on State St and looking for us on the right side just a few hundred feet up the road. We are so close to Oceanside you could probably pick the nearest, most frustrating computer and throw it to us! If you are frustrated with your existing repair provider in Oceanside, or you are a United States Marine stationed at Camp Pendleton and are new to the area and unsure where to go, we would be more than happy to help! We offer a no strings attached, no obligation, Free Diagnostic to every in-store customer.
Chip & Bytes has been open for business on State St since 2011. We are currently the #1 ranked computer repair service on yelp - http://www.yelp.com/biz/chip-and-bytes-computer-and-iphone-repair-carlsbad - and it didn’t come easy. We focus on persistent customer service to earn our positive rating, in addition to our popular flat rates and a Free Diagnostic. We do not charge until a job is complete, and we do not charge if a job is incomplete or the computer is not repaired. We are not partnered with any anti-virus company and we will never try to sell you one. We are more than happy to recommend excellent free anti-virus software that we use.
We frequently run deals and discounts for locals, so don’t be afraid to ask. We always include a coupon with our Computer Repair flyers from the weekly Oceanside farmer’s market.
Select any Computer Repair service from the list below to find out more (the orange links). Many of these services are also available on-site for Oceanside, CA residents. Laptops have some specific repairs, and we have tried to divide laptop repairs into as many pre-defined services as possible. A certified technician at Chip & Bytes would be happy to help you if you need more information – the phone number is at the top of this page. If you have previously been to an OEM repair center, received and unreasonable quote, and are unsure how to proceed, the easiest way is for us to “check it out” with our Free Diagnostic and see what pc issues you are up against. You can also click a map to the right for driving directions. If you have a unique computer repair issue that isn’t listed here, we would love to help.

Common Electronics and iPhone Repair Questions
Is there anything I need to bring with my desktop or laptop?
If you have a desktop computer, we only need the tower (or box). Please hold on to your power cord and other peripherals. If you have the original software that shipped with your computer it is always appreciated – but not required. If you have additional software that is specific to an industry (like CAD or machine control), we are happy to help locate it for you, but always appreciate if you can provide the original install discs. It is not a problem if you do not have your original Windows install disc. Your Windows product information should be affixed to your computer on an underside sticker – this is sufficient to re-install If you have a laptop computer, we would appreciate if you would bring the laptop power cord.
What about a Warranty?
Every computer repair service we perform is backed by a 30 day parts and labor warranty. If you have any problems with repair work performed by Chip & Bytes, please contact us as soon as possible. Additional warranty time may be available from part and OEM manufacturers – please ask your Chip & Bytes Technician for more information. We recommend that every customer try his or her recently repaired computer or iPhone immediately! Please also test your business software. Our 30 day warranty begins the moment the machine leaves the store.
What about turnaround time?
Take a look at our computer repairs – you’ll notice we don’t list rush fees or different prices for certain turnaround times – that’s because we strive for the quickest turnaround time possible on every repair! We understand your computer is important to you. If your computer repair is extremely urgent, please call beforehand – we’ll do our best to accommodate your scheduling demands.
How do I get there?
The best way to find us is to click the map on the right for the location that is closest to you. Remember, The Carlsbad, CA store is just south of Oceanside! For people in the 92054 and 92056 zip codes, there is no more accessible, better reviewed computer repair shop.
