The 4 Most Common Issues in Laptop Computer Repair
While many things can go wrong with a laptop and notebook computer, the following four 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 symptoms can include your computer running slower than normal, freezing or locking up, the BSOD (Blue Screen of Death) or simply programs 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. Computer Heaven even offers an optional virus warranty guarantee! With this optional warranty, we guarantee you will never get a virus ever again! Give us a call or stop by today!
2. Laptop and Notebook Screen Issues
Laptop and notebook computers have built-in screens. Unfortunately, because the machines are so portable they tend to take more abuse than a desktop computer. As a result of this, it is not uncommon for a screen to become damaged. A cracked or otherwise damaged laptop screen can be repaired and Computer Heaven, Inc. has repaired thousands of them. Even if your screen is not physically damaged it can fail in other ways. Regardless of the reason, Computer Heaven, Inc. has you covered. We can repair your laptop screen quickly and get you back up and running. Give us a call or stop by today!
3. Power and charging issues
Laptops have power plugs and also batteries. Batteries are considered a consumable item so they will eventually have to be replaced. 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 when in use. Eventually, the jack itself can become damaged. Fortunately, Computer Heaven, Inc. is great at repairing and replacing laptop power jacks. If the problem is your power adapter, Computer Heaven, Inc. has the largest selection of laptop and notebook power adapters in the Baton Rouge area.
4. Hard drive failures
Some people think their computer is the “hard drive”. However, the hard drive is a small metal box inside your computer or laptop. Your hard drive is where all of your data, programs and even the operating system (aka Windows) is stored. All hard drives will fail sooner or later. They have moving parts and ball bearings which eventually fail. If your hard drive fails we may be able to recover your data and photos. If you’ve noticed clicking noises from your computer or unusually slow performance, let Computer Heaven, Inc. diagnose the problem for you. We can troubleshoot your hard drive and either repair it or replace it and back up or recover your data and photos. Of course, you should always have backups of your data.
