Early History & Mission (2004-2008)

Mount Vernon Computers was founded in 2004 with a simple goal: to serve families and small businesses with fast, reliable IT support. Whether a broken screen, a wine-drenched MacBook, or just a general tune-up, each and every bit and byte is treated with care and respect.

At first, we were a hobby-business focused on custom, high-end desktops. However, it became clear early on that there was a greater need for fast and reliable consultation and repair services…

Unforeseen Opportunity (2009-2019)

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. Working directly with customers and often saving their thought-lost photos, is much more enjoyable and rewarding than the old job rummaging through code.

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.

Mount Vernon Computers Staff

Daryl Elliott, Owner

Daryl has been running Mount Vernon Computers, mostly by himself, for more than 15 years. From PC to Mac, XP to 10, if your system needs repair, chances are Daryl has already fixed your exact model at least once or twice before. 

A Little More

When he can be pulled away from speaking with clients, you can find Daryl enjoying time with his wife and daughter, walking through a local park, taking pictures, or renovating their new home and office in Roanoke.

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.

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.

A New Venture?

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 Alexandria and the surrounding area for years to come.

What are people saying?

  • I very much appreciate Mount Vernon Computer's prompt and efficient work on my computer. Given my previous experience with other computer services, I was very surprised that you were able to get on the work so quickly and at such short notice. Please accept my sincere thanks for raising my laptop from the dead.

  • 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.

  • 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!

  • 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.”
