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.

Where can I take computer classes?

You can take computer classes or lessons from an instructor near you. Use Thumbtack to find top-rated computer teachers in your area, and get price quotes from several experts who seem like a great fit. When evaluating potential instructors, find out if they offer virtual or in-person lessons. You should double-check that they have credentials and can teach you the skills you want to learn.

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.

What are the most basic computer skills?

Some of the most basic computer skills that are worth learning include: 

  • Utilizing standard programs (Microsoft Office, Excel, Word, Powerpoint, etc.)
  • Troubleshooting minor issues
  • Installing software and apps
  • Setting up internet/Wi-fi
  • Running security updates as needed
  • Creating presentations and slideshows
  • Creating spreadsheets and data reports

Find a good computer instructor near you who can help you learn essential skills.

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.

Peachtree Computers was the 2nd entity I selected on Thumbtack. The first was a 1-person shop who became irate because I requested an estimated time for the diagnosis. However, Peachtree Computers provided me with an estimated diagnosis time when I dropped off the computer. They also gave me an estimate that assumed exactly what I thought was wrong was the problem but they gently reminded me they couldn't be certain until after the diagnosis. The entire time they were extremely professional, very courteous, and friendly. Peachtree Computers later called with the diagnosis by the stated time. They told me how long it would take to order parts and provided the total cost. I just picked up my computer today and everything works perfectly! The ENTIRE process with Peachtree Computers was outstanding. I highly recommend them!

Hire Ray! We had a major computer crises with my husbands work computer (vintage). We ordered parts online but unfortunately computer was dead on arrival. Ray assisted us with finding one online and was able to get him up and running without loosing any valuable data! Ray came to the house three times and was always on time and was extremely helpful. Extremely professional.
