A laptop computer is a portable personal computer (PC). All of the computer components are housed within a folding shell

Power Jack Repair Portland
Oh no! Your power jack on your laptop broke! What do you do now?
Our Portland techs have heard a lot of stores, but the other day they came across one that surprised even then. A woman came in with her laptop. Both the USB ports and the headphone jack were completely blown out and needed repair, but the rest of the computer worked just fine. They asked her what happened.

The other day a man came into our Portland office and said that he had a problem with his laptop. We asked him what was wrong and he said we’d better see it. He showed the keyboard to us. It was a disaster. Keys were missing all over the place and some of them were broken. It looked like something heavy had fallen on it. Our tech asked him what had happened. This is the story he told us.
Is your MacBook screen broken? I’m sorry. Genuinely. Accidentally breaking the screen on your piece of expensive equipment is frustrating and annoying. It can happen in a number of different ways – don’t be ashamed of admitting how it happened. We’ve really seen it all. Sometimes your kid will drop it, or you will, or it will be left somewhere it shouldn’t. At the end of the day, the way in which it was broken doesn’t really matter. You have a broken screen on your Macbook and there’s not a whole lot you can do about it.
Laptop technology changes too darn much. Why can’t these scientists just pick a speed for computers to run at and we can all just be happy from there? Well, because otherwise we’d be stuck in the stone age, reading ancient books that held us back from progressing as a society. From that dramatic intro, allow me to transition into how this applies to laptop selection and installation. While laptops are wonderful things, they often become behind the times. New programs work on better hardware, and after a while you can’t just upgrade your laptop and get on with your life.
Almost everyone these days has a laptop of some sort. Even if it’s just an old one that needs hardware repair in a storage locker in Portland somewhere, most of us have probably owned one at some point in our lives. Any of us who have owned one are very familiar with how finicky they can be at times. Whether it’s a broken hinge or a cracked screen or a broken power outlet or missing keys, laptops need hardware repair from time to time.
