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.

Benjamin, solved my ASUS Touchseen Computer problem excellently. I am so happy to get my computer repaired by him with reasonable cost. I was tired in getting my computer repaired in Kathmandu,Nepal and so sent to Phoneix, AZ. My daughter sent my computer to factory but she got answer that it would costs more than about $600. I decided to dump my computer instead of spending so high cost. By internet search, I found several repaired shops in Phoneix. Among them, I decided to send my computer to Flat Rate Computer Guy. He repaired by computer in $100 only. He did outstanding job for me and I am very satisfied from his service.

I needed my computer repaired and returned to me so I could take an evening appointment. Ryan picked it up, repaired it and returned it within a few hours. His price was exactly as he quoted. I'll be calling him again for all my repairs. It's good to know I have a computer repairman on my side.

Sam was very nice and efficient. He offered to pick up my computer from Gilbert, and then once the repair was complete, he would return it back to me. I wouldn't have to move a muscle. The repair was done in about 30-45 minutes, I HIGHLY recommend Sam for any fix on your computers. Thanks so much Sam!

First I want to express my thanks to "thumbtack". You guys are great and I'm so glad I found you. Ryan Olson from "Your PC Guy" was over and above what I was looking for when my PC crashed from a virus. His friendliness and professional knowledge of computers was so appreciated. I recently moved back to AZ from UT and didn't know where to find a good computer repair company. I have found my PC Guy for life. I highly recommend "Your PC Guy" to all who need a good, honest, reliable PC repair person. Thank you Ryan.
