MacBook Hardware Repair
You might need a nerd if…
- Your MacBook is running slower than usual
- You’re having power issues
- You MacBook shuts off randomly
- Parts of your MacBook (keyboard, screen, battery etc.) no longer work
MacBook power issuesIt can be really aggravating when:
- Your MacBook won't hold a charge
- Your MacBook doesn't charge at all when you plug it in, or
- Your MacBook just won't turn on at all
Cracked screen or display issuesThink about how easy it is to break a screen on a laptop. We carry them around from place to place and from surface to surface, it’s no wonder that broken screens are so common with laptops. Of course, only second to cell phones though. Luckily, the LCD screen on a MacBook is usually far less expensive than buying a new computer. Yes, that’s right. A broken screen does not mean you have to replace the laptop. Maybe there’s no obvious damage but your screen is still not working, we can tackle that too. Could it be a faulty inverter or graphics card? We’ll let you know what the problem is.
Fan repair, replacement, or maintenanceLaptops get hot and fans help dissipate that heat. Extreme heat can cause serious damage to both your computer and to your body. Some of the signs of overheating or fan issues are:
- The fan is constantly running and making loud noises
- The computer is struggling to perform basic
- Mysterious error messages
- The laptop abruptly shuts down on its own
Missing keys or a broken keyboardDid you spill soda or some other sugary substance on your keyboard? perhaps you've fallen victim to crumbs. Don’t worry, we won’t tell anyone. We’ll disconnect the old keyboard and put in a shiny new one that types just fine. Perhaps your child ripped off a key. Yeah, Nerds On Call can handle that too.
RAM, RAM, and more RAMRunning slowly, an error message that says your computer has “run out of application memory”, or the inability to multitask on your MacBook like you used to? These are common issues that happen when you're in need of more RAM. Sure, you can close out a few applications or limit your self to 1-2 tabs on your internet browser instead of the usual 10+, but who wants to do that? Life is more fun when you multitask, and your MacBook ought to be able to do as many different things at the same time as you can. If your MacBook doesn’t have enough RAM to handle the tasks you are throwing at it, give us a call. We’ll add more and get rid of those annoying error messages and slow loading times.
