Why You Shouldn’t Try to Fix Your Broken Laptop Yourself

Hire a Pro to Fix Your Broken Laptop

Going the do it your self route is never a smart option when it comes to technology (unless you are a whiz at it). Have a look at the reasons to hire a pro.

There’s nothing that inspires a wave of panic like a broken laptop.

Laptops are projected to be the device of choice in just a year or so. We use these portable computers for everything, from ordinary web surfing to running our business.

It’s perfectly understandable that when yours breaks down, it can make you go into meltdown mode. What can you do?

Ways To Deal With A Broken Laptop

Maybe you’ve had a laptop delete all of your files or get hacked so badly you can’t recover it. If you’ve been burned like this before, you might try to do a bit of prevention.

You might do some homework and shop for a computer that doesn’t break down easily. For example, computers like Apple have a 10% failure rate after three years of ownership.

If you are currently dealing with a laptop that needs some TLC, you might try to fix it yourself. Don’t do it!

Laptop repairs are no easy task. Before you start tinkering and take a situation from bad to worse, read why you need to hire a pro.

Save Time

The moment your laptop freezes up or goes dark, the questions start. Why is this happening? What does this mean for my data? What can I do about it?

You can spend your time doing research and trying to figure out and just be left with more questions at the end.

Save some time. Hire a professional who has probably seen your problem before.

Save Money

Another bonus? You can save more money by getting a laptop repair service to take on your problem.

We know – this sounds counter-intuitive. There are several reasons why just paying for a computer repair service is actually your cheapest option.

With some places, you can send your computer straight to them, saving you gas money (and time, too!). Plus, a lot of stores have discounts and promotions, both on service and even parts of a laptop.


If your laptop isn’t completely blacked out, some repair companies can take care of your issues online.

This is a convenient option for those whose laptops aren’t responding correctly, have lost files, or have programs that don’t work correctly.

Sometimes, a broken laptop can be fixed in just a few minutes! That alone should make you want to hire a pro for any computer laptop repair you need.

Experienced Technicians

Do you have several years repairing laptops? If you did, you no doubt wouldn’t be reading this article.

For those of us who don’t have 25 years of experience repairing computers, the task can be daunting to say the least. Plus, if you try to DIY, you might end up making the problem worse than what it is.

Look for a professional who has a few years under their belt and knows their way around computers. The best laptop repair specialists can be trusted with your sensitive data and can get your computer back to you quickly.

Data Protection

The number one thing that makes us cringe when our laptop goes down? Data loss. A serious issue with your laptop can easily wipe out important data, information, and projects.

When you try to repair your laptop on your own, you can make your data situation even worse.

Hiring a computer repair specialist can help minimize the damage. In some cases, they might even be able to recover your lost information!

Quality Service

Sometimes, when you attempt a project you don’t have experience in, you might fix the first issue but cause another one.

That’s the same problem you might run into if you find a freelancer to look at your broken laptop, too.

When you find the right computer laptop repair specialist, the quality of their work lasts a long time.

Don’t trust your laptop to just anyone and don’t try your hand at repairing laptops if you don’t have the experience. A trusted professional computer repair service will take care of your issues in a timely fashion and provide quality work that lasts.

Repairing Is Better Than Replacing

In the first few moments of panic after your laptop goes down, your first instinct might be to buy a brand new one.

Of course, you want to get your projects back on track, but it can be better, in the long run, to repair your laptop instead.

New laptops can cost hundreds, even over a thousand dollars. That’s a huge and unexpected wallop to your wallet.

Hiring a laptop repair pro can save you a chunk of change right up front, recover your projects, and get you back on track quickly.

Preventing Further Damage

Trying to take on a difficult and complicated project by yourself is a certain recipe for disaster. Your issue can quickly get out of hand if you’re not sure of what you’re doing.

Why take a risk with a laptop that holds your sensitive data and all of your projects? Stick with a professional and don’t turn a flame into a raging fire.

Long-Term Care

Another great reason to take your broken laptop to a professional computer repair service? They not only can help you fix your main problem but find out the root cause and tell you how to prevent it.

You wouldn’t want to make the same mistake twice. If you weren’t sure what caused your laptop malfunction in the first place, a great repair shop can see where you went wrong.

On top of that, they can show you how to take care of your laptop and make it last longer, too.

Call In The Computer Laptop Repair Specialists

There are a few things you can DIY when it comes to a broken laptop. For example, popping in a new battery is pretty easy if your old one dies, or replacing a frayed charger cord.

For the really important stuff, call a professional.

So far, it hasn't been that great. I took a laptop in almost 2 weeks ago and... haven't heard back from them. When I went in to drop it off, it was like they were getting ready to go out of business. The young guy who took my laptop said he would call me and hasn't yet. I know that we have had 2 weeks of holidays, but other businesses are open again. He made sure he got my $45 first though. I'm surprised by all of this, because I've gotten great service when the father was there. In this guy's response, he says that he can't get a hold of me. What he fails to mention is that he wrote my number down wrong and didn't check his caller ID from when I called last Monday or when I left a message the week before. I left a message last week and he never called me back then either. When he did finally found my number, he chewed me out for everything. He never confirmed anything about the computer, yet acts like he did. So my number is not out of service, but I will not be a customer of theirs more

Am new to the area having problems with tower computer at the time. Was... advised to seek a locally owned business doing computer repair. I did and chose Community Computer Services in Alexandria, Ky. 41001. Did diagnostics as I was thinking problem with hard drive. Wasn't which was great price wise. Was able to clear out all viruses and malware. Saved my pictures and other personal folders and reloaded to computer. Also installed free virus and malware programs. Runs fast!! Also they gave me a week to use to see if incurred any problems. I did not!!! While taking care of tower computer explained how slow my laptop was. So brought it in. Was going to do diagnostics see what problem was. He told me it would be like a new computer. Advised me to use chrome. He saved my files and reloaded them so where I didn't lose anything. Also downloaded the free virus protection and malware. The laptop is brand new to me. It is fantastic!!!! So fast it has to wait on me. I would recommend anyone having computer problems to see Community Computer Services immediately. Very reasonable, courteous and explained things to me where I could understand. Excellent more

My computer quit working just as my wife was in the middle of using it for... Vacation Bible School last night. She was panicking. I began to look online and saw Community Computers near where I live. I checked the reviews and it had a great rating. I called this morning and explained my situation. I was told to bring my laptop in and he would see what he could do. When I took it in I also shared with him another issue I had been experiencing, my wireless connection was not working . He said he would really try to find out the issue so we would have it for Bible School. About 2 1/2 hours later he called to give the good news that the problem was just a bad cord. When picking it up he also told me he gave it a good checking over and tried to repair my non wireless connection for over an hour. He then told me instead of trying to go into the laptop to change a chip which could be costly, he sent me to Staples for a solution of a $30.00 wireless adapter. I was very impressed with my experience Community Computers. I would encourage anyone who has computer issues to check them out. You will not be disappointed. Also, the price I paid was very more
