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.

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 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.

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 wouldn't recommend anyone except Outlet PC. From the minute I stepped inside I felt completely at ease leaving two computers there to be repaired. I even received a loaner. Chris is extremely honest and the process was affordable and done right. If you want your repairs done right..hire Outlet PC!!

Computer Show turned out to be one of the best leads that I could've found and thanks to Katia at Computer Show I had a great experience with great communications, and SUPER fast service. Initially she projected a 2-3 day finish time on my repair, but instead called me the very NEXT day that my job was ready to pick up!! It blew my mind! She puts in the extra hours to get your job done and I'm extremely satisfied with Computer Show. Thanks for her Thumbtack Listing! She's deserving of your business.

A few days ago I had major crash of a home-based 3 computer, router and 2 printers system. I chose Ryan because of positive reviews and his come-to-you service. He responded -quickly- and determined that my laptop had failed and through a diagnostic process found serious problems with the desktop unit. I replaced the laptop and Ryan built a new desktop to spec's for me. After installing the unit he insured all components of the new system worked together properly. Ryan then spent several hours working on the new desktop remotely to re-install previous software and insure WIN 8.1 operated properly. His -total- invoice for all of this work was -at least 50%- under most 'mobile' computer services and certainly far less for a better desk top than I would have paid at a 'big box' store or most small computer stores. WHATVER your computer repair/replace needs are call Ryan at One Stop Tek Shop first!

I have owned several businesses in Las Vegas and I am well educated with a Master's Degree and have a lot of computer experience. I have used other IT techs for business and home and none of the other companies compare to Las Vegas PC Repair. Mike is tops with professionalism, work quality, and value. You would be wasting your money if you had your pc repaired by anybody else! Mike, you are "The Man" and I will use you again and again!!!! Darryl H.
