I’m not sure how many home network installation services near me offer laptop repair, but I am always glad to diagnose this type of computer for service and repair.
Most often there are screen problems, followed by failing hard drives, or other system malfunctions. Sometimes it is a simple fix, and sometimes a costly repair which may be excessive enough for one to consider an upgrade.
I find that if you have a laptop computer that is more than 5 years old, it may be worth your while to buy a clone model to use for parts. Ebay and Craigslist are full of ads for people trying to sell used laptops and a little patience and stradegy, and you could obtain a great parts cache. Even if the laptop isn’t functioning, that usually means only one part is defective and the screen and fans and memory could be in perfect order.
