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.

Sabeeh was able to repair my computer within a few minutes. He was prepared (asking questions in advance of the house call) and very responsive with the questions that I had before he arrived. He worked around my schedule and arrived right on time. I highly recommend him. He will definitely hear from us again with any future issues! :)

Shane is 100% top notch master of his craft. I have had other techs that only know this or know that and they might have been pretty good. Shane is a true computer wizard he not only did what he came for I had some other needs I was struggling with and he went out of his way and spent multiple hours getting everything working correctly just troubleshooting one thing at a time and I had a ton of things going on that were causing major harm to my business. Ever since he came it’s so simple and he explains wry thing so well on my level without making me like I should know this stuff he related and I’ve had him over a couple times and he I extremely professional, efficient, mastermind, a master at his craft and all aspects including macs, pc’s, apps, advertising and I plan on having him come over on a regular basis to keep improving my systems and we were even able to save me a ton of money on all aspects and see where I was spending money effectively and where it was not affective and or hurting my business. I don’t know why they only let you choose three out of 5 boxes he should have 100 all checked off! Y’all should be paying him! No words to explain how grateful and thankful I am for his time and his personalization in every aspect can’t wait to find out what else he can do. If you choose anyone else to solve any issue related to any kind of tech, advertising, repair, professionalism the list doesn’t end. Bottom line he is vital to my company and I pray I get the chance to work with him on a regular basis. Absolute and Total Master Pro Wizard and just a great person on top of that. He really does care as well. One of a kind is an understatement... Million Stars ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️♾🙏
