For over 30 years, Computer SuperCenter has been the go-to place in town for quality Computer Service and Solutions. We’ve seen so much change in technology from our start to today, and it has been truly amazing to be a part of our customers technology journeys. From watching your children go from their first Laptop to an Apple Macbook for college, or seeing a Small Business grow from three to thirty employees, we appreciate every one of you.
Nothing is going away but a lot more is coming!
In the early 2000’s Lighthouse Technology Partners was created and took hold on the 2nd floor of the Computer SuperCenter building. Formerly this Mason Street location was a Bank with a full parking lot. The building now has two thriving IT Businesses, helping not only people, but also businesses with their computer, networking, and IT Systems support needs. We always look at ourselves as a big family and all our customers are a part of it. Many familiar faces have been here for more than 20 years with at least another 20 more to go.
In 2018 we decided the best way to continue to improve our quality of service, the responsiveness of our support, and find new ways to offer value in our community, would be to formally merge Computer SuperCenter with Lighthouse Technology Partners.
Overlap has always existed between the two businesses, the employees, customers and services, and now we are officially bringing it all together. While we are having a physical renovation of our building and office space, we are having an internal renovation as well. The two teams of experienced professionals will now be a cohesive force of I.T. experts.
Key Highlights about our transformation
New Learning and Training Facility: We will be offering a variety of events and providing opportunities for everyone to take a lesson and learn from our experienced technical staff.
Computer Support: The Apple & Windows Computer Support you have come for will be even better with enhanced technician workstations, repair tracking and more!
Professional Onsite Technical Services: Services for the home, family and small to medium size business.
Subscription Support Services: High-value support for all the technology requirements you have – from a highly qualified team of trusted technical advisers.
Fabulous New Device Bar: A refined product selection more in line with the changing needs of the modern shopper.
A new name “Lighthouse Main Street Solutions” will be what you see when visiting 103 Mason Street soon. Everything you have come to Computer SuperCenter for in the past will still be here and will only be better! Computer Service, Support, Guidance, for people and Small Business, all the way to sizable professional service firms.
Our commitment to providing exemplary service is getting stronger and we can’t wait to unveil our new office space. This is a special time in our history and we are happy you will be a part of it.
We are still open for business as usual during the renovation and everyone is welcome. Mon-Fri 9-6 & Sat 10-5.

It’s time to embrace the back to school season! Aside from powering through your school supply list, brainstorming lunch ideas, and mapping out the quickest route to school, take some proactive measures in safe-guarding your child’s computer.
Often times overlooked (especially if you’re not shopping for a brand new computer this year), is the health of your computer. Keep these tips in mind and save time (maybe even money!) BEFORE an issue arises.
Top 5 Back to School Computer Tips from Jonny Gould:
• Check for viruses, malware, and spyware. Take the appropriate steps to rid your computer of these malicious threats AND make sure to have a proper anti-virus software installed and up-to-date. Enable security functions, including anti-phishing and pop-up blocking.
• If your child is going away to school, make sure you ask what the connectivity is like on campus. Will they need an Ethernet cable? Or a USB cable to connect a printer directly to the machine should the Wi-Fi act up? (Now might be a good time to mention that their own printer will require their own paper and ink! Not to add more to your plate…)
• Make sure all hardware is up-to-date. Get the battery, system RAM and memory checked. If possible, get a full hard drive test done.
• Run all updates and check for software functionality. A sub-tip to think about, does your student have all the software they need for their specific course load? A graphic design student will require different software (Photoshop) than a student who is geared more toward web design for example (Dreamweaver).
• Plan for the worse (losing data, hard drive crashing). Make sure your child is equipped with a way to BACK UP DATA! We recommend an external hard drive to keep the files safe. Last thing you want is to hear their 50-page report vanished; we know those tragedies all too well here.
Hopefully you will be able to use these computer tips to get ready for the upcoming school year. If you have any questions or want more information, stop in or give us a call, 203-661-1700.
