You might need a nerd if…

  • Your computer just won’t boot up! Or your laptop screen is cracked. Or your keyboard doesn’t work properly. Or a port is loose. Pretty much any physical problem you can imagine. 
  • Your computer shuts off unexpectedly, or you keep getting error messages
  • You’re in Sacramento and know you need laptop hardware repair, but you’ve been putting it off because you’re too busy to do without your computer.
  • You’ve tried your own laptop hardware repair but you’re still having problems with your laptop.

Sacramento Laptop Hardware Repair Service

“My laptop is nickel and diming me! Should I just throw it out and get a new one?”

Laptop hardware repair versus buying new. What’s best?

We get asked this question a lot. And it’s a logical question! After all, if your toaster gives up the ghost, you get a new one. We live in a disposable age. But personal computers are a bit different. Yes, they wear out and gradually become dated. But because laptops are modular, (a bit like lego, really) it does indeed sometimes make good financial sense to get your laptop hardware repaired instead of springing for a full replacement. 

If you’re interested in exploring the possibility of laptop hardware repair, just call us at 1-800-919-6373 or fill out our contact form. We have a store right here in Sacramento, and we’re a fully mobile service. We’ll happily take a look at your laptop and offer a detailed, no-obligation quote for laptop hardware repairs.

So, what kinds of laptop hardware repairs do we do? Let us take a picturesque walking tour through some of the more common laptop hardware repairs our nerds can perform.

We’ll fix, replace or upgrade your RAM

Check out our RAM repair services. Having a good amount of functional RAM (or random access memory) is vital if you want your laptop to go fast. And who doesn’t want that? If you use word processors to handle big files, play recent games, or get involved in graphic design, you’ll be needing as much RAM as your laptop can handle. If you notice slow performance in your laptop, RAM is often to blame. 

While this can be a tricky laptop hardware repair or upgrade job to do yourself, our techs have the tools and experience to get the job done swiftly. We’ll typically come to your home or business in Sacramento at no cost to perform RAM upgrades.

Laptop hardware repair involving hard drives often involves an extra layer of complexity, because we need to protect your precious data at all costs. The best thing you can do if you’re worried your hard drive is failing is to drop it off at our Sacramento store. Or just give us a call at 1-800-919-6373 and we can come to you. We’ll back up your data, then we’ll replace or repair your hard drive and set you up with a reliable data backup solution.

Replacing your keyboard

A sticky key on your keyboard is the worst. Keyboards wear out all the time — and here’s a news flash for ya — they wear out a lot faster if you accidentally spill coke or coffee over them. But not to fear. We can either perform a full keyboard laptop hardware repair — replacing your whole keyboard in its entirety to give you a fresh start. Or if you have only minor damage, we can just fix or replace individual keys for you. 

Display laptop hardware repair

All it takes is one moment of carelessness to break a laptop monitor. A dropped laptop can easily fall prey to a shattered or cracked display. But you may experience other problems, like a flickering display, dead pixels, fading, or tinting.

When this kind of stuff happens, many of our Sacramento customers come into our store expecting to have to pay for a brand new laptop. This ain’t necessarily so! Laptop hardware repair does extend to screen replacements, and most of the time a replaced monitor is significantly cheaper than buying a new machine. We run a full screen diagnostic as part of our laptop hardware repair service. That way, we can tell you exactly what’s going on and give you a free no-obligation quote on how much it’ll cost to repair. If you’d like to learn more, check out our laptop screen repair page.
