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  • Is your computer old and out of date?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.

Reviews for Melbourne computer technicians
Daphne B.
J's Computer Repair is great! I woke up to a broken laptop screen, and got no help from the insurance company whose policy I bought to cover such problems. Jeshua of J's Computer Repair responded within an hour of my request for help on ThumbTack. None of the other companies I contacted have responded yet. Anyway, I dropped off my computer the next day (Friday), and within an hour he notified me that the new screen was ordered and should arrive within a day or two. He optimized my C drive as well and freed up some space for additional programs or operating system updates. He notified me as soon as the computer was ready for pick-up on Monday -- a total of 3 days. I am extremely satisfied, and recommend Jeshua and J's Computer Repair to anyone needing professional support for their computer!

J's Computer repair just completed a tedious screen replacement that several other shops either refused to do or couldn't do. The price was very reasonable and Jeshua was in constant contact with. Great job, I'll be back with more work, I'm sure.

Nick was exceptional! He drove an hour to come to my house for the repair, was thorough and skilled, diagnosed the problem and even called later to check on how things were working! He only charged us $75 for all that he had done. Above and beyond and I will call on him for all future repairs! Highly recommend Nick and Computer Screen Investigators!!!!

I highly recommend J's Computer Services. He was so quick getting back to me after the initial request, quickly scheduled my repair, and had my totally broken 64-bit PC up and running within a couple of hours! Super reasonable price for this level of expertise! Would definitely work with again, but hope I never have to!
