The 3 Most Common Issues in Laptop Computer Repair
While many things can go wrong with a laptop/notebook computer, the following three issues are the most common ones we see:
1. Virus and other software problems
The number one problem that laptop and notebook computers face is by far the software problem. This can be a virus, a PUP (potentially unwanted program), malware or simply Windows failing due to a bad Windows update or simple data corruption caused by a power surge, bad software driver installs or any other number of causes. The systems can include your computer running slower than normal, freezing or locking up, the BSOD (Blue Screen of Death) or simply program not working the way they normally should. Fortunately, no matter what the cause of your software problem Computer Heaven can get your computer back up and running like the day you first bought it. Give us a call or stop by today!
2. Power and charging issues
Laptops have power plugs and also batteries. Batteries are considered a consumable item. You will find the longer you own your laptop, the shorter the laptop battery life will be until it eventually stops charging at all. If your problem is poor battery life or no battery charging, you likely need to get a new battery. If your laptop or notebook won’t power on at all you may have a bad power adapter or the power jack on your laptop or notebook may be damaged. Damaged power jacks are very common. Since the power plug sticks out of the laptop, they tend to get bumped and yanked periodically. Eventually, the jack itself can become damaged. Fortunately, Computer Heaven is great at repairing and replacing laptop power jacks. If the problem is your power adapter, Computer Heaven has the largest selection of laptop and notebook power adapters in the Baton Rouge area.
3. Hard drive failures
Your hard disk is where all of your data, programs and even operating system (aka Windows) are stored. All hard drives will fail. They have moving parts and ball bearing which eventually fail.
