Who can fix my computer?

If your computer needs repairs, hire a technician who has experience with your computer’s model and brand. Ideally, the pro you choose should have certifications, training and/or a degree in a related field. 

Look for top-rated, qualified computer repair services in your area on Thumbtack.

Is it worth replacing the motherboard on a laptop?

If your laptop’s motherboard was damaged by physical impact, liquid, heat or electrical damage, you may need to replace it or buy a new computer. You should consult computer repair experts near you to determine if replacing your laptop’s motherboard is worth the cost. Compare the price quotes you receive with new laptop prices, and decide which option is the most cost-effective.

What should I do before sending a computer in for repairs?

Before you send your computer to a technician to fix it, take the following precautions:

  • Make sure you hire a reputable, top-rated professional to handle the repairs. Look at past photos of work they’ve completed and read their customer reviews on Thumbtack.
  • Back-up your data. To ensure you don’t lose the data on your computer, back-up your files to an external hard drive. 
  • Ensure you have access to important information. If you need to access certain files or information from your computer, make sure you can access that information through a cloud storage system or external drive. 
  • Erase sensitive information. If you have files (documents, photos, etc.) that contain sensitive information about your finances, accounts, passwords, etc., delete them before you bring your computer to a repair shop. 
  • Log out of your accounts. Make sure you’re logged out of your bank, social media and other accounts.

Is it cheaper to replace a hard drive or buy a new computer?

Buying a new hard drive is almost always cheaper than buying a new computer. If you suspect you need to upgrade or replace your hard drive, ask a computer technician to diagnose your device (and request a cost estimate if the culprit is indeed the hard drive).

Is it worth fixing a computer?

It depends. If the damage is severe, you might be better off buying a new computer than spending hundreds (or thousands) of dollars on repairs. Always get price quotes from a few computer repair services near you, and compare those estimates to desktop and laptop prices. If it's cheaper to fix your computer,  consider doing so. But if it's cheaper to buy a new device, that's probably your best option.

Should I repair or replace my computer?

To determine if you should replace or repair your computer, consider the following:

  • Has your warranty expired?
  • Is your computer old and out of date?
  • Is the cost to fix your computer 50% or more of the cost of replacing it?
  • Before it broke, was your computer working slowly and inefficiently?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, it’s probably time to replace your computer. When in doubt, consult a technician for their expert opinion.

How many years does a laptop last?

Depending on its quality, age, condition and maintenance, a laptop may last only a few years or up to seven years. Of course, your laptop may last longer or shorter depending on how well you take care of it. If you think your laptop needs repairs, don’t procrastinate — hire a technician to look at it before the damage becomes irreparable.

I just reached out to the Thumbtack community this morning for assistance clearing up a virus and an ill running Macbook. I got an immediate response from Abdullah Chowdhury who lives in Scottsdale and drove down to Chandler AZ within a couple hours and on the spot fixed my computer. His price was outstanding, and less then if I would have downloaded some expensive anti-virus software to fix my computer. Within a couple hours of working on my computer he cleared out and scabbed it free of any bad files or viruses. On top of that he downloaded a free anti-virus software that is able to run in the background and keep my computer free of future damage and malware/viruses. He was obviously very responsive, prompt, courteous and very friendly. In fact I was so happy with his services I will have him perform the same work on my other computers. I would rate him excellent, 5 stars all the way. If your computer needs repair, call this guy as he is trustworthy, honest, and works in the cyber security industry for large corporations so the guy knows his stuff. He is well versed in Mac and PC. Glad I picked him for the work that needed to be done.

My fathers laptop was having some serious issues and I was looking everywhere for a local repair shop but all the reviews weren't so great.. I saw that Flat Rate Computer Guy had some amazing reviews and decided to give it a shot! When I showed up Ben was very professional and explained and showed me what the issue was right away! I was expecting to hear that the repair would be about a week but it was ready the next day! Overall very great service, inexpensive and great quality job :)
