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.

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.

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.

Gary handled my computer repair quickly and completely. I will certainly seek him out again if I have computer repair needs in the future.

This service was great! They were prompt and honest about the repair of my computer. They could have nickeled and dimed me with repairs but instead just got down to business letting me know that my mother board had fried.

Justin came to my home to repair my computer. He spent several hours doing the work and fully explained what was happening along with answering all my questions. I'm happy to have a functioning computer again and wouldn't hesitate to call Justin for any future needs.

Hello: I had several laptops that needed to be repaired but it wasn't until my son's laptop broke down that I decided to take action and get them fixed. Honestly, I thought mine was unrepairable but Justin proved me wrong; which confirmed that computer repairs are not my forte. :) I found Justin to be professional, knowledgeable, personable, honest and reasonably priced. I definitely recommend Justin (Manitou Tech Support) for your computer needs and will call upon him again when the need arises. Thanks again, Justin and God Bless!

Gary and Natalie were great, friendly people to work with. The day after I posted my online request for repair of my laptop Natalie picked it up from my home. Gary called that same day and gave a professional assessment of the problem and a very reasonable cost for the repair. The repair was completed and laptop delivered the following day. Gary replaced my hard drive with a higher capacity drive, recovered some of my programs (I had my other programs and files backed up), installed a better anti-virus program than I had as well an anti-malware program (both free versions) to help in keeping my laptop running efficiently. He insured my programs were up to date and virus, adware, and malware free. When Gary delivered my laptop he offered to re-connect it to my wi-fi system and wireless printer and any other assistance I needed to get my systems up and operating. I didn't need that assistance but was impressed with Gary's offer to do it as a part of his service. My laptop now works BETTER THAN WHEN I BOUGHT IT!! Without a doubt, this was the BEST customer service experience I've had...ever!!! If you need your computer repaired COMPU10 should be your choice. I will definitely use their services for any computer needs I have in the future.

While I was deployed, Feb 16, 2013, my laptop, a 17 inch Sony Vaio, fell and the screen shattered. I returned home on Oct. 11, 2013. The following week I did my research and looked around for local computer repair and put out an ad on Thumbtack. Within an hour COMPU10 got the job and called me. Gary was very nice and helpful to me. He called me on Sun Oct 20 and told me the part came in early and that I could have my computer back that day. He also in formed me that there was 1 dead pixel on my screen and even took the time to send me pictures and gave me info on the dead pixel and what the standard was for other computer screens. He was very nice and helpful. We paid the price which was very reasonable for all the work, $180. He his on his way today to give me my laptop. Again, he did an excellent job. Very satisfied.

My son's laptop fell to the floor and the screen was obviously damaged. After submitting my request for service bids late on a Saturday night to Thumbtack, I received a response from Gary within the hour. He was very knowledgeable and straight-forward and answered all my questions within minutes. I received another bid the next morning for less, but I felt more confident in the information I received from Gary and was very impressed with the timeliness of his replies. We spoke the next day and made a plan for him to pick up the laptop. Gary was professional and prompt, making the extra effort to retrieve the laptop on a weekend. With the expectation of the repair to be done within 3 days (the part needed to be ordered), we were pleasantly surprised when the part came in a day early and we had the laptop back by Tuesday evening. The laptop is as good as new and the cost to repair it was very reasonable (much less expensive than replacing the laptop). Gary was a pleasure to work with and we will use him and COMPU10 for any future computer repairs. Thanks, Gary!
