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.

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  • Is your computer old and out of date?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.

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.

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).

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 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.

Kyle was amazingly patient, thorough, and competent in repairing my computer remotely. I was especially impressed since another local computer whiz had assured me that it couldn't be done remotely! What a relief!

In my many experiences with computer techs, there always seems to be an arrogance to them. Being rude and disrespectful of personal information or trying to take advantage of my lack of awareness on computers. I've been always apprehensive because of this. But my experience with Geoffrey was amazing! He was respectful, honest and professional. Even though my computer was problematic to handle, he did not quit until it got to work. I ended up getting a new computer anyway - due to the issues with my old PC. But Geoffrey continued to help and even guide me on purchasing my new PC. Not only that, but their prices are affordable compared to other computer repair places. If I ever need computer advice or help, I will definitely be coming back to Turbo Performance Computers. I've never had such a pleasant experience.

Harold is an excellent technician, he's prompt, knowledgeable, and very pleasant. He listened to what I had ro say about my problem, sat down at my computer and started working on it, explaining what he was doing. In a short while my computer was working 100%. His charges are quite reasonable and well, well worth them. I wholeheartedly recommend him to anyone who has a need for computer repair.

Best computer guy ever hands down! He went above and beyond from the first phone call , warning me not to buy a certain brand and upgrading me to a better warranty and quality. He kept me updated on the repair and sent pictures. He was done really fast and his work was pristine. He also followed up with me afterwards. If you want someone knowledgeable who you can trust 100% with your computer this is the only person I can recommend.

Irie Computer's Raymond took the 512gb ssd from an non-functioning laptop which contained all my information and added it to a "new" laptop. He was careful in opening the laptop by researching the exact model number. (Opening these new laptops ii difficult, as I found out when opening the old one.) His quote was fair as he came to my home allowing me to work, rather than travel to a repair shop. I recommend Irie Computer and will use their services in the future when required. I gave Raymond the old laptop sans the ssd, so he could used it for parts.
