Sacramento Mac Hardware Repair Service

MacBooks are a breeze to use when everything is working. But they can be pretty tricky customers when something goes wrong with their hardware. Why? Well, there are a few overlapping reasons. Parts can be hard to find. Many Apple computers are unusually difficult to pull apart. And MacBook hardware repairs generally can just be more technically demanding than other kinds of computer repair.

The top three MacBook hardware repair jobs. 

We fix a lot of stuff, let’s just be really clear about that! On an average day, our MacBook repair jobs will run the gamut – from a slightly sticky Q key to a MacBook that simply refuses to turn on, to a machine that emits a strange purple smoke that smells of elderberries and freshly microwaved liver (that last one was a doozy.)

But what are the typical MacBook hardware repair jobs that keep our fleet of mobile repair vehicles careening around Sacramento like dodgem cars? Now that’s a dang good question. Here are our top three. 

1. Power issues

Ah, power supply issues: The Romulan Warbird of the MacBook hardware repair world. Power issues can creep up on you (almost as though they’re cloaked — hence the sneaky Romulan reference). One of the bigger challenges we encounter is batteries that slowly lose their ability to charge. Another difficult-to-detect MacBook hardware repair issue is when the power supply slowly begins to physically fail. Luckily, we have our own Assault Formation Theta, AKA our free diagnostic service. 

We’ll closely inspect your computer to identify the real underlying problem and give you a clear, detailed breakdown of repair or replacement costs. Learn more there>>> about how we diagnose laptop power issues.  

2. Cracked screen or display issues

Laptop screens are fragile, and the MacBook’s super light and slimline displays are no exception. A lot of people assume that when a monitor dies, the laptop is toast. This isn’t true! The LCD screen of a MacBook is far less expensive to replace than the whole machine, and you don’t even need to bring it into our Sacramento store. Yep, it’s a MacBook hardware repair job we can easily complete at your home or place of business. 

If your screen is cracked, flickering has dead pixels, or is gradually getting dim, talk to us about our laptop screen repair service. Replacing your old MacBook display with a brand new crystal clear screen is a nerd’s bread ’n butter.

3. Missing keys or a broken keyboard

Keyboards take a battering. The endless onslaught of cookie crumbs, soda spillage, and OETS (over-enthusiastic typing syndrome) can lay waste to the fragile keys of a keyboard. And nothing in the computing world can be more infuriating than a sticky key, or worse, a key with a microswitch slowly losing its clickity pop (to use the technical term). 

The good news is, we’ve done it all and can offer you a few good MacBook hardware repair options for keyboards. We can clean your keyboard, restoring some of its youthful vigor. We can replace individual keys if your problem is isolated in just a few areas. Or we can just rip your old keyboard out in its entirety and set you up with the nuclear solution: A shiny trouble-free new keyboard.
