Common Issues

Your Computer Wont Start

This is usually due to a failed Power Supply Unit.

Your Computer Switches Off

a pc or desktop computer that suddenly shuts off can be due to the CPU overheating it may also be that the Power Supply needs repair.

Your Computer Hangs at Startup

this can be a faulty power supply but more likely indicates that your hard drive has a problem or your motherboard is failing

Your Computer Screen is Blank the Computer or Desktop Screen is Frozen

f the PC or desktop computer is on but the screen is blank the montor may have failed or the computer motherboard has failed to POST (power on self test) or has failed completely.

Windows Wont Boot

If the operating system or other software is either unresponsive or behaving strangely this can be due to failing device drivers, failing hardware or viruses. If you are having troubles booting Windows this is usually a sign of a corrupt ilesystem which will is easily repaired however this can also mean the hard drive is failing.

Laptop NoteBook Repairs

Laptops are far more prone to failure than desktop PC’s and this is mainly due to the constraints on space imposed by the laptop form factor. The electronic circuits of the laptop motherboard are much finer grained and also occupy both sides of a laptop motherboard and in addition the components soldered/attached to both sides of the motherboard are smaller eg RAM, capacitors , mosfets etc.

These factors plus the fact the board is tightly enclosed mean laptops are far more sensitive to heat fluctuations and power fluctuations than desktop computers. Unfortunately laptop manufacturers do not place more emphasis on cooling laptops and providing well filtered power at the lower priced end of the laptop market.

The most common repairs I find with laptops are overheating and power problems. We have over 20 years experience in repairing laptops of all makes and models including HP, Dell, Toshiba, Sony , Asus , Acer.

Overheating

This is a common problem for laptops. Often the laptop is cooled by only one fan which draws from the bottom of the laptop and then blown onto heatsink fins to cool the laptop however if the surface you are working is dusty then the dust can build up clogging the flow of air. It is always a good idea to work on clean surfaces and elevate the f the laptop.
