Because computers don't fix themselves

About the e-Guru

Dave the e-Guru
My name is David Sylvester.

I’ve been an independent computer consultant for 13 years, serving clients in Los Angeles and Ventura counties in California.

I’ve made this website to have a place for people to learn a little more about me. Also, I would like to provide a resource for my existing clients as well as people outside of my geographic support range to find answers to technological questions, and benefit from my recommendations. I hope this will become a useful knowledgebase and resource center to everyone who visits.

As for me, I do general hardware and software troubleshooting on PCs, Macs, servers, and networks.  My niche is small businesses under 50 users, primarily in the financial industry, although I have clients in many other industries, as well.

Services I offer include:

  • Virus and Spyware removal
  • Windows Server maintenance and troubleshooting
  • Network setup and troubleshooting
  • Consulting on new computer, printer, scanner, and other peripheral purchasing
  • Setting up new computer systems
  • Data transfer
  • Data recovery
  • Office and technology expansion planning

You can reach me at or (805) 340-5769.

I hope you enjoy the site!
