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 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  • Is your computer old and out of date?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.

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.

I am a US Federal Attorney so IT repair is a very sensitive matter. When my home computer gave the blue screen of death my heart sank! More than anything because its tax season. Since it was the weekend, I pretty much figured no help was available. I normally use Thumbtack for home repairs but by Tuesday I had exhausted all options and did a search. Based on what I needed it filtered Veterans PC Repair. I sent a text and they came out in 2 hrs. Not only were they miracle workers, they transferred all the data to a external drive that I was able to load with no issues to a new computer. The old computer was reset to its original state so the kids officially have a computer to do games and homework on. Veterans saved the day and saved me for Tax Season!!! Thanks Again Veterans PC Repair!

We did not actually work together because I couldn’t get a part to repair my computer that was reasonably priced. But he was very attentive and came up with a lot of ideas, even though it wasn’t worth it to me to repair it at that point.

Fred was a consummate professional during his visit for my repair. He texted me to let me know when he was in route and once he arrived and began my repair, he was excellent and focused in fixing the computer issues I had. He wore a mask the entire time and I greatly appreciated how he shared with me exactly what was going on and then proceeded to repair it! He even shared some additional tips with me that I could immediately implement when using my computer going forward that really exceeded my expectations. He was so pleasant to work with and I am definitely calling him for all future repairs and highly recommend his services to others! Signed a really happy customer!

Wow! Craig did a fantastic job! I needed the magsafe connector on my macbook air to be repaired and Craig responded quickly! I was in a bit of a bind, as a college student, I had mid-terms and plenty of work to stay on top of. Having my computer break was the last thing I needed. Craig REALLY saved me from having a total breakdown. His price was extremely affordable, and I had my computer repaired within one day. Simply amazing! Thanks so much and I will definitely be coming back for any other technological needs!

I highly recommend Craig Washington for computer repairs ! The hinge on my laptop broke and it wouldn't stay open. I was ready to purchase a new laptop, but Craig sourced out the part I needed. He picked up my laptop at my house, replaced the hinge, and had it back to me in no time at all ! Very professional, highly skilled in both hardware and software repairs. I am really impressed !!!

Craig Washington diagnosed my problem in very good time and was very responsive to my questions- quotes, time of return, etc.- via texts. He went out of his way to pick up my computer so that work could be started before I was able to drop computer off myself. He also planned around my schedule to return my computer as soon as it was repaired. I am very pleased with the new fan he put in my laptop. The only issue I had was beyond Mr. Washington's control. This was a delay in a couple of days in receiving the part- which was due to the shipper's tracking system and out of Mr. Washington's control. I will definitely use his services again if needed. I will also recommend his services to others.

This is a truly excellent computer repair company. I found Craig Washington to be very professional, extremely knowledgeable in his field and timely with his repairs. I found him on Thumbtack looking for help with a virus on my mothers HP laptop and after speaking with him briefly I said you know I have a MacBook Pro that I love but the screen went out several months ago and I was told it would be very expensive to repair, he said I’ll do a diagnostic and see what I can do, well my mother has her laptop back working great and I have my MacBook Pro back in stellar condition and after a third consultation I also have my iMac desktop upgraded to 8GB and running like a real tiger again, and all this at amazingly reasonable prices! Needless to say I am very pleased. I will be back for all my computer repairs and upgrades. Thank you, for a great job and quality service in record time!
