Laptop / Notebook Repairs
Many faults can stop your laptop or notebook computer running well.
We can assist with any of these issues. Here are a few common issues:
Cracked laptop screen
If you’ve had an accident with your laptop / notebook computer then you might have a cracked or smashed screen.
This is not the end of the world and quite often this damage can be repaired at a cost effective price.
This is especially the case if the machine is still working fine and just the panel is broken (in the case of a laptop / notebook) or just the glass is broken (and the picture still looks OK, in the case of a Ipad or tablet).
We can also assist you with assessing your machine and providing a report to your Insurance Company if the damage is more substantial. Often we will find that a screen replacement will be around the same price, or less than your insurance excess anyway.
In order to provide you with a quote on the repair of your smashed screen we need to know some key information:
Make and Model of your device (For Example Toshiba Satellite L500 Notebook – model PSLS01-016002)
Description of what is wrong – for example is is just the LCD screen damaged (no damage to the plastic surrounds, or the hinges of the screen?)
If you wish us to provide a report to your Insurance Company, we will need to know the name of the Insurer, the Claim number and the branch or division that you’ve been dealing with.
You can drop in or courier us your damaged machine in for us to take a look at – we can generally give you a good idea what the likely costs to repair will be within 1 working day of receiving your equipment.
Overheating Laptop / Notebook:
If your computer or notebook is overheating, it can cause problems such as the computer locking up, blue screening or crashing, and if left long enough can also cause permanent damage.
Because computers have fan units which suck in and then blow out air, they are magnets for attracting dust and grime. This can be even more true when used in a dirty environment like a factory or workshop, or even if used in bed where lint and fluff can get sucked into the fan unit.
The good news is that usually it is pretty easy to dismantle your computer and clean out the heatsink and fan units. You do need to be careful doing this not to use brushes or cloths which might cause static damage to the electronics inside your computer. Also be careful using a vacuum cleaner or compressed air not to get too close and blow or suck any components or jumpers off the motherboard. If you are in any doubt, we strongly recommend bringing your computer in to have us service it for you. We can clean your machine out and replace the fan if necessary.
