Laptop Repair - Should You Use A Service Center?

I have had many people over the years complain to me about computer repair shop problems. There are industry certifications for computer repair, but there isn't any law requiring companies to have these certifications or actually any training at all. There have been a couple of recent and interesting studies done evaluating computer repair companies.

In one such study a reporter unplugged the power to the hard drive from the power supply inside the computer. Fixing this would take less than 1 min. Several computer repair specialist were called to diagnose and fix the problem. About half of the individuals called were able to fix it for the minimum one-hour site visit charge. The other half either charged more, or had to take the computer back to their shop. Some of the technicians that took the computer back to the shop required that more hardware be purchased and one of them totaled more than $250 in additional hardware to fix the problem.

Another recent study took 18 computer stores, some large corporations like Best Buy and CompUSA and others were small mom and pop computer stores and gave them a total of 31 common and simple computer problems. Surprisingly, the computer repair shops could not solve 18 of the 31 problems. Of those 18 stores, only 7 stores were able to properly diagnose a bad hard drive cable. 8 of the 18 shops advised the computer owner to replace perfectly good parts averaging $340 in useless repairs.

The 18 stores were also given a computer with a faulty CD ROM drive.Only 8 of those stores re-attached the audio cable to the CD ROM drive.

A third study had 1 guy take a laptop with a failing hard drive into a computer repair store to get the hard drive problem diagnosed and replaced. On average the computer repair shops charged him over $100 dollars for backing up the 20 Gigs of data off the hard drive, another $200-$300 to replace the hard drive and an additional $150-$200 charge for removing spyware (which wasn't on the computer to begin with). After all was said and done, the reporter took the laptop to his 14-year-old neighbor who put in a new hard drive and got it working for the cost of the hard drive.

This is pretty depressing is not it?

So what should you do if you have computer problems? These 6 tips below should help you out.

1. Check to see if the computer is under warranty, and if it is, let the manufacture fix it.

2. Back up all of your data. It's a good idea to keep backups anyway.

3. Use some diagnostic tools to try to determine or solve the problems yourself.

4. Locate and recovery disks that came with your PC. These might be necessary in restoring it or could be used to perform diagnostic checks as well.

5. Ask your friends for recommendations on computer repair shops or people and be sure to check to see if they have insurance and certifications.

6. When you drop off the machine, get a written estimate of what the repair will cost and how long it will take. Tell the technicians you want to approve any additional costs and part replacements.

And if all else fails. Google it!
