Unlike a desktop PC, a laptop is made to be small and portable, so it can often wind up being broken or not working and it can feel like the whole laptop is broken, and not worth a repair, but is that really the case?
Let’s dive into some common issues and whether they warranty doing to a computer repair store.
Problem: Damaged Screen
Screen damage is a delicate laptop issue, and if your laptop is older, and the screen repair cost is over 50% of the laptop’s current price, you may want to consider a replacement. But if you’re attached to your laptop or just can’t afford a new one, a screen repair is always possible. But make sure you see someone experienced who can use real replacement parts.
Problem: Shut Down’s
This can happen for a few reasons: either because there’s an overheating power supply and a malfunctioning fan, or a battery or display issue. All of these issues have their own fix, but the thing they have in common is that it’s a pretty straightforward repair job, so there’s unlikely to be a need to replace the whole laptop.
Problem: Slow Tech
There are a lot of causes for slow tech, and one is that you need to reduce the number of programs running all at once, or you may need to clean your laptop if it’s getting cluttered. On the other hand, you could have a malware issue, and if this is the case you need to hurry to perform a backup and then rush to the experts to see what can be done.
If not the above issues, the following are also common: not enough disk space, low RAM, unsupported technology, the wrong software update or you’re in need for an operating system upgrade. All of these things are absolutely repairable issues.
Problem: Technology Not Charging
If your laptop won’t charge, the first thing to do is to check your charging cord and if it’s working properly. If this isn’t the case, it could also be a broken charging port. This might take a professional to fix the issue but is a straightforward fix. If it’s neither of these issues, the real problem may be that the battery is no longer working. This will need to be repaired and may take a little time to source the parts.
Problem: The Blue Screen of Death
If you have a Windows laptop, you may see the blue screen of death. If you have an Apple product, you may see the rainbow wheel or black screen of death. These are all issues that show that a system error has occurred. There are many reasons for this, but the issue can often be repaired.
Problem: Everything’s Overheating
If your laptop is getting very hot, it’s wise to turn it off and unplug the power. Sometimes putting the laptop on an uneven surface (like your lap, a pillow, or the bed) can prevent the fans from working and lead to this issue. On the other hand, your laptop’s fan may not be working, so consider getting a repair done.
