Almost everyone in Sacramento has some sort of a laptop. Whether it’s an Ultrabook, notebook, docked tablet, or something else, the last ten years have been so dominated by the mobile computing industry that plenty of people have one, even if it’s not working and needs hardware repair, just sitting in a storage unit. And if you’ve ever owned a laptop, you know how prone to failure they can be. Screens can crack, keys can get pried off by children’s fingers, power ports can fail – any of these problems can pop up at any time. And the problem with laptops is that they’re not like bigger computers such as desktops – you can’t just swap out the failing part. Laptops have all their components soldered into the motherboard and it’ll take a professional technician to actually repair the hardware. So what are you to do? Scour Sacramento to try and find the computer shop with the required know-how? Even if you do, you’ll probably have to make a few trips there and back and they’ll charge you a “consulting” fee…

Laptop RAM Upgrade & Repair Sacramento
There are a lot of misconceptions of what RAM does. Most people think “computer memory” is the hard drive. RAM is more like the short term memory in your computer. Here’s how it works. You ask for a piece of information, say a photos of your kids at the lake...
Let’s talk a little bit about hard drives in your laptop. Well, obviously you asked for it if you read the heading. Still though, a little education never hurt anyone.
Hard drives in your laptop are quite a bit more finicky than those in your desktop. They’re smaller, spin slower, and have less protection surrounding them. As a result, they’re a lot easier to break. Plus, they’re in a portable container that moves around all the time. That can add a lot of unnecessary stress on your hard drive with all its moving parts. You might accidentally jiggle your laptop or drop it while it’s on and inadvertently damage your hard drive. Chances are it won’t manifest itself immediately, but over time this sort of wear and tear on your laptop hard drive will take its toll
Having a broken motherboard is one of the worst problems that a laptop owner can have, unfortunately. First, it’s pretty hard to diagnose. When your computer just stops turning on, it could be any number of things – the CPU, the RAM, or the motherboard. All those things need to be tested first before the motherboard can be determined as the root cause. If the motherboard is actually broken, then you have a serious problem with your computer. Most motherboards can’t be repaired, they need to be replaced. And motherboards for laptops aren’t really something you can just pick up in Sacramento. So how do you know when you might have motherboard failure?
