  If you rely on your laptop for school, work or simply for playing a few casual games there is no doubt that it will have some problems sooner rather than later. Even though nothing lasts forever, it doesn’t mean that you can’t prolong your laptop to function a few years longer. A lot of people assume that when damaged, Windows laptops or macbooks can only be repaired by its manufacturers or by professional computer shops.
However, there are some basic problems that you can rectify by performing a couple of manual tweaks. Therefore before taking your laptop or iMac to the nearest repair store, check for the following first:

Your laptop is not turning on no matter what

If your laptop doesn’t turn on no matter what or it suddenly dies, it might be because of a couple of reasons. Assuming that your battery is completely dead, the AC adapter is the first and most common reason behind this issue. The first thing you should do is get a voltmeter and examine the adapter. If there is zero sign of electricity output, test or borrow before purchasing a new AC adapter. If there is a sign of electricity then an AC adapter is all you need to fix this problem.
  The second issue could be a broken DC jack. Your AC adapter may be working but it is just not delivering the electricity to power your device. Try adjusting the angle of the plugin its jack, if a few lights turn on but still can’t boot your device then it might be time to replace the DC jack. If this also fails then Laptop Repair Perth suggest you buy a new laptop or replace the motherboard.

Your laptop has a blank screen

If you open your device, power it on, hear it running but the screen is black don’t freak out. The first thing you should do is unplug the power, remove the battery and then hold the power button for about 30 to 60 seconds. Reattach the power cord and then reboot. Finally, shut down your laptop again, return the battery and reboot.

Your laptop is overheating or the fan is loud

Since laptops are portable, air intake to the fan may become limited due to moving around. This also allows your device to accumulate dust as well as other foreign particles into its cooling system through the fan portal. Avoid putting your device on soft surfaces thus may block air passage thus ensure that you use it on hard, flat surfaces. Use compressed air to clean your fan. Also, limit the number of programs running at once because the more they are the harder your laptop has to work.

Your keyboard doesn’t work

Keyboard issues happen more often than you would like to think. Most of the times the solution is pretty simple, you accidentally pressed the Num Lock key and now most of the alphabet keys are acting as numbers. The solution is to press the Num Lock key and restore your keyboard back to its alphabetic operation.

What a great service! In this age of rip-offs, it’s refreshing to know that a business quickly repairs your product AND rings you to tell you it’s done AND will cost no more than their quote. I wish I had more iphones to get repaired!
