Company History & Values

Mount Vernon Computers was founded in 2004 with a simple goal: to serve families and small businesses with reliable, relatable IT support. Whether virus removal, data recovery, or just a general tune-up, we view each and every system as unique as the person using it.

Word-of-mouth combined with ever-increasing web traffic allowed founder Daryl Elliott to quit his job as computer forensic specialist in order to run Mount Vernon Computers full time.

Over the years, we continued adding additional customers while solidifying relationships with existing clients, with a number of technicians performing onsite visits removing viruses, speeding up systems, and bringing smiles to faces everywhere, and our dining room doubled as the perfect spot for an in-home office/client drop-off area. After getting married in 2017, and assisting a local business get back on their feet after a devastating fire, our office has been mostly mobile.

In 2020, because there just wasn’t enough going on, we decided to move our little family (and business headquarters) to Roanoke, VA in order to be closer to family (and mountains). Daryl will continue being involved with each and every job both in the Roanoke area and up north in Alexandria, either remotely, or through technology specialist, Calvert.

We see this change making us more reliable and efficient; please continue reaching out for repairs and quotes either through our contact page or at 703.635.4265.

Mount Vernon Computers Staff

Daryl Elliott, Owner

Daryl has been operating Mount Vernon Computers for more than 15 years. From PC to Mac, XP to 10, if your system needs repair, odds are Daryl has fixed your model at least once or twice.

A Little More

Daryl enjoying time with his wife and daughter playing tennis or hiking. You’ll often find Daryl and Erin in their office/photo studio tinkering away on computers, building a website, or capturing timeless images. 


Calvert Wallace II, Technology Specialist

Calvert has been fixing computers and supporting users for years, and with his customer service skills, Mount Vernon Computers was a perfect fit as he works towards his degree in Computer Engineering.

A Little More  

When he isn’t fixing computers, which in and of itself produces sheer joy, Calvert likes to read, spend time with his family, and volunteer at his church where he runs the AV equipment. 


I’ve always enjoyed photography and design, and while Mount Vernon Computers was growing, I pursued these passions mostly on the side. However, after marrying very well in 2017, my wife Erin and I launched ELT Expressions – a design studio dedicated to creating timeless images and designing clean, crisp websites. Mount Vernon Computers is still my full time gig, but we’ve enjoyed growing a photography and design portfolio over the past several years via portrait and wedding photography, as well as creating functional, user-friendly websites for many of our small business clients.

We are so thankful for the support over the years, and we look forward to continuing to provide top of the line IT service to Northern AND Southwest Virginia.

What are people saying?

  • I had a failed hard disk that would not mount and seemed completely unresponsive. Some of my friends who work in IT doubted it would be recoverable, based on my description. Daryl at Mount Vernon Computers was able to recover all of the data with no problems and transfer it to a new external drive, which he purchased for me at cost. Daryl was courteous, responsive, and also knows how to deal with mac-formatted drives. All at a fair price. I just couldn’t ask for any better service.

  • After the headaches my laptop has given me over the past two weeks I never thought anyone could get it up and running with a “24 hour turnaround” time. Man you really know how to kick a virus in the rear and my wife and I really appreciate that. My laptop is running even faster than before the virus! Thank you very much for your prompt service, courtesy and very reasonable cost. You can count on us for a recommendation to anyone in need of computer repair.”

  • My family has now used Mt Vernon Computer’s service for two of our computers, for both restoring data and repair. We really appreciate their very prompt and friendly attention to what seemed like disasters to us! Their work exceeded our expectations and was performed at a fair price. While we will use your advice on how to avoid problems in the future, if we encounter difficulties we’ll be back!
