Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

How much does computer repair cost?

The cost to fix your computer or laptop will depend on the extent of the repair and the labor rates in your area. For example, a repair service may charge $100 to fix virus or malware issues or $320 to fix a cracked or damaged screen. On average, computer repair technicians charge $60/hour for their services. However, hourly rates can range from $45-$90

To find out exactly how much it will cost to fix your desktop, laptop, Apple or PC computer, request cost estimates from computer repair specialists near you.

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.

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  • Is your computer old and out of date?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.

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.

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.

Joel is professional and honest ,he installed a solid state drive and 16g of memory for very happy with his work and his prices are much better then the big computer repair shops I used in the past.i would recommend him.
Melissa O.
Joel is very knowledgeable when it comes to repairing computers. He is friendly, helpful, and highly professional. The only reason I didn’t give him 5 stars is because the service took a little bit longer than he had first said. If I could give a 4.5 I would!

First of all, the man in the picture is not Larry! Larry came to assist with a laptop not charging. We explained to Larry we thought it was probably charger, but were not sure. Larry sat down at our table & began to research how to repair/disassemble computers on our working computer. He insisted he would have to take the computer to his home and test the charger, etc., and that he would let us know the next day what was wrong. After numerous messages left, emails, and still no response from Larry, we proceeded to the business address listed on his cards (which was his home). After ignoring knocks, doorbells, & phone calls while we stood on his porch, a woman finally answered the door. Larry was sitting in a chair, eating & watching t.v. directly behind the woman. He completely ignored us at the door & the whole situation. We demanded our computer back because there seemed to be no reason to "work on" our laptop for days, when he was only verifying charging capability. Larry finally came out with our laptop completely dismantled. He explained he had to completely take it apart to justify that it really was only the charger that was bad. We took the computer to another technician who verified that Larry had broken all of the connectors in the laptop. Larry accepts no responsibility & is demanding we pay him $50 for his time in the matter. FYI: We had to pay $100 to get the computer back to the original state prior to Larry touching it. DEFINITELY DO NOT RECOMMEND @HOME COMPUTER SERVICES FOR ANYTHING OTHER THAN A COMPLETE HEADACHE! There is no way these other reviews are real. This man had us uncomfortable with his capabilities from the was one thing after another and Larry is the most unprofessional computer repair techinician I have ever met. Previous to Larry I've had excellent experiences with technicians on Thumbtack. Larry is definitely one to stay away from!

This firm is outstanding! My business activity lives in my laptop. The screen broke. LjjmTech was one of 3 contacts and he was the only one that responded and more importantly he responded instantly! He asked spot on questions to increase the speed to moving forward to repair. My laptop was back in my hands two days early! He is conscious of managing both time and cost for his work! I will give all my computer business to his firm going forward. I highly recommend LjjmTech!!!!
