Complaint: I faced some problems with one of my MacBook Pro\'s not booting up. I looked up the computer repair section on the Craigslist. I saw this AD by American Tech that offered a flat rate of $69.00 for repairing any problem on a mac Laptop at their site in Berkeley. I called American Tech they told me to bring in my MacBook Pro.They diagnosed and told me that my computer had Video problems and that they will have to re-solder the video chip on the motherboard and told me that it would cost me $99.00. They further told me that if I don\'t want to have it fixed the charges would be $69.00 just for the check up they had performed. I had no choice other than to agree for having it fixed and pay extra $30 for a total sum of $99.00. On my approval the repairs were carried out. However, after the Video chip was re-soldered on my Mac., they called me and said that my laptop has some boot up issues now, it still wouldn\'t boot up. The next day I received a call from them that the booting issue has been fixed and that I can pick up my laptop. I trusted them for their word that it has been fixed. I paid them $99.00 and picked up my MacBook Pro. Ever since I have had my laptop repaired. It has been giving me trouble. It boots up sometimes and at times I have difficulty in booting it up. Since I have another Macbook Pro that I mostly use, my repaired Mac has been sitting idle because of the boot up issues. I have not used it for a single day ever since the repairs.My request to the BBB is to intervene and ask American Tech to fix my Mac for which I have paid more than the deceptively advertised price of $69.00 and yet, I have a dead machine at my hands.I am surviving on a fixed income which I get in form of \'Social Security Disability\' each month from the Social Security Department.Please help me have my mac fixed by American Tech they are located ******* ****** ****** Berkeley California XXXXX.
