What do laptop repair services include?

If you’re a laptop owner, chances are you use it regularly for work, school, gaming, or other everyday purposes. Like appliance problems, laptop issues are bound to come up at the most inconvenient time. 

 

Laptop repair services solve both hardware and software problems. Hardware repair includes issues with physical components, such as the screen, keyboard, touchpad, hinge, and battery. Meanwhile, software repair covers all the system, utility, and applications that run on the device. 

 

Here’s an overview of laptop repair services you can book on Airtasker: 

Laptop hardware repair

Laptops have delicate parts that go through wear and tear. Something as minor as a missing keyboard key can affect your experience. Meanwhile, constant lagging, overheating, and startup failure can be more disastrous. A laptop repair service can fix the issue by doing a thorough inspection and troubleshooting. 

Your technician may open up the laptop, disassemble it, and swap parts to repair your computer. The technician may also identify parts that need replacement and, depending on your agreement, obtain these parts for you. 

Here are the most common laptop hardware issues:

  • Motherboard – startup problems, video display issues

  • Laptop screen – stuck pixel, vertical lines, dimmed or cracked display

  • Laptop keyboard – unresponsive or missing keys

  • Laptop hinge – a loose or broken hinge

  • Laptop battery – worsening battery life or not charging unless plugged in

Connectivity repair

A key advantage of owning a laptop is that you can take it anywhere and connect to any available wireless network. However, these devices aren’t immune to WiFi concerns — be it constant disconnection, failure to show available networks, or failing to connect at all. A connectivity repair includes diagnosing the problem and checking the drivers, relevant software, and power settings. If the problem turns out to be the WiFi modem or extender, a professional WiFi technician can help you out.

Laptop performance repair & upgrades

Older laptops may be more susceptible to damage, but they don’t have to be a lost cause. Suppose your computer has significantly slowed down, or it undergoes frequent hanging. In this case, a laptop repair specialist may diagnose the problem and give your laptop a new lease on life. Upgrading your hardware (e.g., the RAM or graphics card) can be another way to combat laptop performance woes.

 

While upgrading your laptop, you can consider doing other upgrades in your home, such as new sockets and switches

 

Troubleshooting for laptop accidents

Spilled coffee on your laptop? Dropped your laptop accidentally? For emergencies like these, technicians can walk you through giving your laptop “first-aid” to alleviate the problem. Then, you can book a nearby laptop repair specialist who can come right over and fix your device.
