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.

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.

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 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.

My experience with Blue Sky Computer Services was awesome. I had a cracked screen, along with my cd drive door needing repair as well. Bill was able to get both repairs completed within no time at a reasonable cost. From start to finish, Bill was on point. He contacted me every step of the way to keep me informed of where he was in completing my order, as well as, information about pricing. I will be using Blue Sky Computer Services in the future, thanks Bill!!!

I hired Micheal Perry etech to repair my Laptop I went to his house to drop off he approached me outside to retrieve my laptop . He looked at it . Contacted me later that day and told me it needed a hard drive and said it will cost $20 on amazon for a 500 gb hard drive or I can go to Best Buy and purchase one . I began to look around but he contacted me back and said he ordered one and that it will be back in 4 days . Once he said it arrived he said he swapped out the hard drive . Told me to pick up days later . I came by his house he then asked me do I want my old hard drive I said yes he ran inside then back and said oh my room mate must have moved I'll get it back to you. He also told me that my fan sounds like something is loose in it and handed me the laptop I asked him could he reapair it he said yes . Its been 2 weeks I have not seen my hard drive . I went home later with the laptop and sent him a picture of the error message telling me it will shut off the laptop because the fan is not working properly at 10pm that same night . He text me back and told me he could look at it that Sunday and instructed me make sure I sit the pc on a flat surface when using it and if I don't here the fan turn it off . The fan do not work . I didn't here from him Sunday so I text on that Monday and asked what happened he told me he was home, but he did not tell me when to come by. What ! Anyway I set up an appointment with him to drop it off the following Monday I contacted him to set up an appointment . Tuesday we nailed down an appointment for Monday at 9 am .He confirmed it. I arrived 9am ,sat there for a min then text him to let him know I was there . No response so I went to the door some guy says he's not here and asked , would you like to leave your laptop? I told him no and text Micheal Perry to contact me it's been three days and this guy have not replied good thing I didn't leave it . The problem is this guy has all access to people lives when handling hard drives , computers and such and if thumbtack is not screening this people that they have listed on there website it's a problem now this guy is no where to be found , I can't use the laptop I just paid him to repair right now and he has my hard drive that he offered to give back and didn't . The computer freezes up I would not recommend this guy based on my experience.
