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  • Is your computer old and out of date?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.

He helped me with a blue screen of death error after I attempted to restore my computer to before it was broken. He quickly contacted me after putting out the job on this website and was very quick in suggesting fixes. When I talked to two other computer repair services, they gave me a quote of between $125-210 to repair my computer. Kenneth spent at least 4 hours on my computer and only charged $35 (I felt guilty and made him take $50). He tried everything he could of before resorting to try and fix my computer without deleting my files. Somehow, he managed to save a large portion of my files. Kenneth is a very good at his job, willing to go above and beyond, and very flexible on when he can help. I would gladly have him fix an future issues with my computer! He even is willing to help fix any problems I have for the 90 days. Great service at a great price!

Express Computer repairs exemplified, Professionalism, and Value. While at the same time being responsive and patient with dealing with and resolving my issues. Like many of us out here, although I have some up to date Apple Products, I don’t know all the ins and outs to them, But Will definitely does. Not only was my problem (s) solved, but I was also Educated on many of the capabilities that my Linked Apple Products could perform. I highly recommend Express Computer Repairs & Solutions to anyone needing this line of repairs, How To’s or anything else surrounding Apple Products.

This had to be the best interaction I've had with a Thumbtack service provider!! Fred reached out very quickly with what he believed my laptop issue to be and a loose estimate of timing and pricing. He gave me options of where to have the computer repaired (my home or his store) and even made the drive to pick the laptop up when I'd decided to go the store route. During the repair, a part that he'd ordered turned out to be the wrong fit and he quickly gave me an update when the issue arose. When my laptop was returned is looked brand spanking new. Fred not only took care while it was in his possession but he also cleaned it from top to bottom. If for nothing else, I'd recommend Fred based on his professionalism and value alone but he was also a pleasure to work with. I've now found my go-to for all my computer repair needs.
Thumbtack Customer
AWESOME!! Right from the start Sean earned his 5 star rating. He gave me a free diagnosis and all possible options for repair on an aging desk top computer. He informed me up front of all pricing to repair a dead power supply and even suggested I upgrade my memory which was full so that I would be able to keep up with to days new and faster programs and applications. Including a warranty. So I could get a few more years out of this thing. He did a comprehensive tune up that made my computer run better than it had in years. He was very quick to respond when I had a question and explained things in a way I could understand. Sean has gone above and beyond with his customer service including offering a link for a discounted Utilities clean up program saving me money. I highly recommend Sean T Custom PC to anybody who need computer service or repair. Or even a build! Sean also offers remote service If you ever get stuck with a problem and cant figure it out yourself. I'm sure I will be taking advantage of that service in the future. For me, Sean was a great find and I have added him to my service contacts list. I have already sent my son to him and he had his laptop fixed in no time and its running great also!! Thanks again Sean!!

Jason was awesome. I took my work Laptop when it crashed. He not only fixed the service issues (and there were many issues) he upgraded my system to Windows 10. It has really made my laptop run faster and more efficiently. He also helped explain things to this nervous Nelly. I would highly recommend Bad Gorillas Computer Repair. He did the work promised in less time than normal to get back to work.

I needed help with my desktop, searched computer repair, and was fortunate enough to find Harry Stein of Stein Solutions. Of course, his lifelong career in IT was impressive, but it was an underlying theme I picked up on when I read his client referral comments. Harry took the time to teach how a computer functions, and what makes it tick! After my first conversation with Harry, I was shocked to learn how very little I knew about the technology. I didn't hesitate to team up with him. Regardless of the time we spent talking by phone, the time he spent running his “soup to nuts” diagnostics, or the time it took him to implement his recommendations and fixes, LET ME CUT TO THE CHASE, THE COST FOR HIS SERVICE IS A FLAT $200. DID I MENTION? This fee also includes Harry’s offer to walk me through the process of replacing my HHD drive with a SSD drive to greatly improve the performance of my desktop. I just need to buy the hard drive plus accessories with a cost of around $80! Stop wasting your time, and save yourself money and frustration. I wholeheartedly believe in the talent and integrity of Harry Stein.
