Commonly Asked Computer Repair Questions We Get Asked
Why does my computer keep saying preparing automatic repair? – Commonly that can happen due to few issues. An update didn’t install properly, hard drive is failing or computer was not shut down properly. Since there are various causes best to bring in your computer for diagnostics before attempting a restore or auto-repair.
How much does a computer repair cost?
How much does it cost to repair a computer screen? – Well it varies on each model. Typically starts at $150 (part & labor). Best to stop into our store for a free estimate.
How much does computer repair cost? – Depends on the issue but we start all our repairs off with a diagnostic service to verify all issues those you are aware of and hidden issues like hardware failure or viruses & malware. For accurate pricing stop in for estimate.
How to repair computer hard drive? – Hard drives are not really repaired instead are replaced. Unless you are seeking data recovery, hard drives are repaired temporarily to extract files.
Software Troubleshooting & Repairs – Starts at $125 (flat fee service) . Really depends on the exact issue we are troubleshooting. If it’s a list of issues or a glitch in Quickbooks or blue-screen crash price will vary. However we charge a flat fee so there is no hourly cost to you if it takes a long time to fix.
Hard Drive Replacements – $180-$250 (flat fees) All our replacements include part & installation of mac or windows operating system and a data transfer from your original hard drive. The price does vary depending on what capacity hard drive you select and the kind of drive you need.
Liquid Laptop Damage Repair – $150-$199 (flat fees) In some cases liquid damage repair is possible, however we need to fully inspect the laptop first to verify that option exists. If a laptop is sitting for days, weeks, or a year with corrosion damage repair is not possible so often a data backup is recommended that that point.
Motherboard Replacements – $190-300+ (flat fees) Motherboards are the most expensive part that “can” be replaced on a laptop. YES, we can offer to do that. Do we recommend it “NO”, because 99% of the time the motherboard may be faulty but then you have 5 years of usage on the hard drive, screen, battery etc. Unless all the other internal parts are 3 years old then it makes sense but when a laptop is ending its mid-life stage a year after spending $ on that repair you may not be as happy with it longterm as maybe doing a data transfer to a newer laptop.
Laptop Fan Repairs/Replacements – $125-175 (flat fees). Most cases a clogged fan is all you have and the repair is taken care of during the initial $75 diagnostic phase. However if the fan does need to be replaced, we usually can get the part in a few days and have it working like new. Just visit us for an in-store estimate as some gaming laptops have “2” fans and the price would go up.
SSD Upgrade – $175-300 Depending on the capacity of 500GB about $90 and 1TB $130 for SSD plus labor.
Laptop Screen Replacements – $180-$250 On average a 14inch and 15inch laptop screen replacement part and labor is usually around $180-$200. If its a 17inch or a rare model closer to $250. Due to Covid and shortages in China, LCDs for some models may go even higher.
Memory/RAM Upgrade – $150-200. This fee includes PART & LABOR, best to stop in with your HP, Dell, Asus, Acer, Mac, Lenovo, Toshiba, etc for us to verify what is compatible. If it’s DDR3, DDR4, verify the speed and how many ram slots exist. We noticed some newer laptops have 1 ram stick soldered on and only 1 slot that can be used so it’s best to have a technician or Dave verify that if there is one slot available what the max capacity that slot can utilize that way you don’t put in ram that would be recognized.
Power Jack Repair – $140-$199 This fee includes part & labor. This again varies on brand and model and availability of part. We also want to test the laptop first to verify the jack is bad and it’s not the motherboard. Often we have found even after replacing dc jack the laptop may not power on as the board got shorted by a defective jack so best for us to verify is it really worth fixing or looking into a new laptop.
Laptop Keyboard Replacement – $125-$179 Fee includes (part & labor) based on brand and model and availability of the laptop keyboard. We need to make sure it’s not a software issue causing the keyboard not to work, we noticed with some updates to windows 10 keyboard stopped working so we always want to check the laptop first.
Virus Removal – $149 Flat Fee – Usually takes 1 to 2 days. We always perform windows updates when done and also verify you have activated security.
Data Recovery – $199-$599 Depending on the exact issue and the quantity of drives needing to be recovered that is the typical price range. We do not charge by GB of data restored it’s based upon the process we need to use in order to extract the data.
