We offer a number of laptop repair services both onsite or at our service centre.
Hardware replacement – This includes all parts that are currently available either from the manufacturer or a third party. Examples are laptop hardrive, cd/dvd/dvd r/w drive, Screen, Hinges, memory etc etc.
Data recovery – In most cases we can recover customer data from a failing hard drive or deleted data or just copy old user data to a new pc, apple mac or laptop. A completely failed hard drive usually requires specialist recovery in a “clean” room which we can arrange if required.
DC Socket replacement – We can replace a failed or broken dc socket on most laptops as long as we can source an oem or equivilant dc socket.
Upgrades – We can advise on various beneficial upgrades to enhance your user experience such as more memory, larger hard drive etc.
Graphics chip repair – This is usually due to a flaw in the original laptop design which means that the graphics chip is not soldered correctly to the mainboard and seperates or the solder decays over a period of time. The repair involves a re-flow of the solder or a re-ball of the chip. We use an infra red solder station to complete these repairs. This involves heating the chip to between 250 and 350 degrees centigrade very quickly to re-melt the solder or re-ball using solder balls of between 0.2 and 0.45 mm diameter. The same process used to use to repair red ring of death on Microsoft xbox 360’s and yellow light of death on Sony PS3, when we repaired consoles.
Due to the specialist precision equipment required for graphics chip repair this type of repair is only available in our service center and not onsite.
