Service is both a noun and a verb.

Have you ever serviced your computer?

There's nothing wrong with the sentence grammatically. The word "service" is a transitive verb. You can service your computer if you know how to examine and repair computers. However, if you cannot do so, then the coorect sentence will be:

Have you ever had your computer serviced?

  • As a side note, I avoid "servicing" in regard to people as the object, because of the double entendre with the "stud service" meaning. May 13, 2015 at 8:24
