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.

Bob is a very skilled computer repair guy, that takes a lot of pride in what he is doing. In my case, I had my computer in for repair since the only thing working was the power button. Bob told me he could fix it for 80 USD and if not, it would be free of charge. After spending some time on the computer it turned out to be the RAM that caused the problem, which saved me for at least 100 USD, since other companies like Microsoft Store adviced me to buy a new motherboard or a new computer which would have cost me much more. I recommend Bob to all others with computer issues, cause of the quality of work and price he is offering and he gets 5 stars from me.

I brought my computer to Bob on a Sunday afternoon!!! After briefly looking at it he said he could not repair it and proceeded to give me pointers on how to use what I have more efficiently. NO Charge. Awesome

Very pleasant, on time, fair price, knowledgeable and a pleasure to work and be around. Fixed my issues and also helped with an upgrade. I would not use anyone else if I had another issue. I am very computer savy and do most of my repairs, but I am just to busy to trouble shoot this time of year, need my computer fixed, and Bob did this in record time.

Fernando was excellent; punctual and professional. He worked diligently to help resolve our networking issues as well as repaired two USB issues with one of our other computers. He really went above and beyond my expectations, and I would wholeheartedly recommend him and plan to use his services in the future! Great experience. Thank you!

Bob has basically saved me from not being able to take notes in class for the next week. I’m a college student who works part time and can barley pay my student loans. When my laptop broke I really thought that was the end for me. I couldn’t afford a new laptop and at any other location the repairs for my laptop would have been at least a months worth of tuition. If it wasn’t for bobs kindness and willingness to work with virtually nothing I wouldn’t be able to do my homework or even take tests in my class since it’s all virtual. I’m truly grateful to this man and I will be recommending him to anyone and everyone who’s having computer troubles. On top of being a great computer repair man, he’s also a genuinely nice family man. 10/10

Bob repaired my wife's computer, from a situation where it literally took 2 hours to log on, to a state where it took seconds. He installed an SSD (without losing any data), and corrected the software problems that were causing the trouble. His price was VERY reasonable, and he's extremely competant. I would certainly use him again, and would not hesitate to recommend him for any hardware nor software problem. It's a pleasure to deal with people like him.
