Regardless of its make and model, we can perform quick, efficient repairs to restore function to your laptop.
Minimizing Damage From Spills
Most of us are guilty of putting a laptop at a place of risk for damage. Because laptops are portable, you might find yourself checking emails on over breakfast, or completing work at a coffee shop. Situations such as these increase the likelihood that your laptop will be exposed to moisture and debris that cause damage. Unlike a desktop, which may just need a keyboard replacement, spills on a laptop can threaten the usability of your entire device. If your laptop is affected by a spill, you should:
- Immediately turn it off
- Remove the battery
- Turn the laptop over
- Place a towel under the device to catch draining liquids
As soon as you are able to, schedule an appointment for one of our technicians to assess the damage before you turn on your laptop. We typically need to completely disassemble a laptop to fully correct the effects of a spill. Once we gain access to its internal components, we will use a special cleaning agent to remove corrosive moisture from the main system board. Although water may pose a lesser threat than other liquids, like juice or coffee, it can still leave traces of minerals that will affect the laptop’s function in the future.
Depending on the amount of damage, successful laptop repair may include operating system installation. We can also address problems with software and perform other needed tuneups to improve the efficiency and speed of your laptop. If your laptop has been running slowly, shutting down for no reason, or experiencing pop-ups, you have most likely been exposed to a type of malicious software, like a virus. We offer malware and virus removal to get your laptop running optimally. We can also perform data recovery for information that has been lost in a virus attack or a mishap with your laptop.
