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 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  • Is your computer old and out of date?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.

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.

Repaired my PC and setup my wireless printer (HP print scan photo printer) quickly then walked me through how to operate. He is very knowledgable & extremely professional. Will use again. Actually I referred him to my 92 yr old father computer. Walter repaired and walked him through how to operate the Computer wisely with less frustration. Hill Computer Repair I strongly recommend. His prices are right also!

Mr hill replaced my led screen and keyboard on my laptop. He was very courteous and professional and did a great job in my repair. He beat the competitors prices by about $30 as well. Very time efficient. I had my computer back and running in about 4 days from the time he ordered my parts. Would highly reccomend for any electronic service needed

I am so pleased with the service I got from Brian of BECT Computing. My laptop was constantly dropping its wifi connection or not connecting at all. I took it to a local repair shop who charged me a $49.00 diagnostic fee and then an additional $100.00 for virus removal. When I got it home it still didn't work. I posted my problem on Thumbtack and Brian called me immediately. He was there within two hours on a Sunday morning and completely resolved the problem in about 45 minutes and for a which was about the amount of time I spent arguing with the previous repair shop only to get a partial refund. Brian only charged me $60.00 total. It so nice to have my laptop back. Thanks Brian. I will absolutely call him in the future with all of my IT needs!

Kyle was fantastic!! He helped repair my son’s laptop and went above and beyond to resolve the problem even working on Christmas Eve day. He worked tirelessly on solutions for us and got the laptop back running so my son could play Fortnite over school break which was important to him. Kyle was very knowledgable and clear on instructions he gave me when walking through the problem. We thought the issue was a failure to install OS but turned out the harddrive was partially bad. We are in a different state than Kyle but he walked me through step by step on replacing the harddrive part with a new SSD and then we were able to load the OS and were good to go! I never thought I’d be able to replace a part on my own computer but he walked me through it. Kyle was professional, honest, and also very fair on price- I cant recommend him enough. Kyle will be our go-to on all IT issues for sure in the future!
