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.

Craig was knowledgeable about my computer(Mac). He diagnosised the issue fast and explained to me how I can fix it myself. I had a very good experience using Craig to service my computer needs

My computer was not turning on and Carl was able to quickly diagnose the problem and resolve it. It took him a matter of minutes, and the job was done. Beyond that, he was exceptionally friendly and respectful. I love that he was mobile and adhered to Covid-19 safety guidelines. He is my new go-to computer tech!

Fred was extremely helpful!! He answered all of my questions a timely manner and was more than willing to go above and beyond to make sure I understood everything. He was even kind enough to drop off my new computer later in the evening. Fred was very honest and didn’t try to oversell or push anything onto me. I will definitely be using him for my computer needs in the future. Thanks so much!

Craig was very professional. He picked up my computer and, after removing a lot of viruses and malware, returned it to me on Sunday. Unfortunately this did not fix my problem (I will probably have to contact the manufacturer) and he was kind enough not to charge me. I will definitely re

Robert could have taken advantage of my situation and have me pour money into a worthless cause, but instead helped me to save money AND make sure that my daughter was happy with a better computer. I won’t forget how awesome you were to me! Thank you so much Robert!!!!!!!

Mr. Stein is nothing less than a genius. I had stupidly refreshed my laptop twice and all my files disappeared. I, again stupidly, decided try to fix it myself. I finally contacted Harry and sent him my laptop. He restored my files and spent hours with me showing me what I did wrong as well as teaching me so much more about computer capabilities and things to avoid. His long career in computer security and his warm manner reassured me that I had chosen the right person. Harry recovered my data, replaced my hard drive with a new SSD drive, installed Windows 10 and cleaned up everything I had messed up. He communicated his progress every step of the way. His pricing could not have come even close to covering all the time he spent with me. I am so grateful to have found an honest, trustworthy, brilliant, kind and caring person to help me.
