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!

Laptop Repair May Lead to Unsuspecting Theft of Your Identity

As my life has drastically changed in the last 5 years I have had to look into new outlets for making money. In my spare time I began researching different ideas on the web and tried to find something I could really relate to. I'd like to tell you I had success from the start but unfortunately it was quite the long road before I began to see any substantial return.

Recently I was looking online for a way to repair my laptop and stumbled upon a laptop repair training course. After doing some research it seemed that the program was actually legit and it sparked a business idea for me. I figured if I could learn how to effectively repair laptops and than I could have a very lucrative trade in our heavily computerized world.

Once I get the wheels turning it is usually hard to stop me and I downloaded the course within the next few days and began to study relentlessly. I must say overall I was very impressed with the course and it gave me a solid foundation to take off with. The videos are 10 hours long consisting of 40 different parts and really help you get the fundamentals of laptop repair down as well as an understanding for some of the more common issues.

At first I started small and just helped with friends laptops before actually fixing anything for a fee. I would definitely recommend you take it slow with this process and get your hands on a few laptops first before you get to the business side of things. There is no need to overwhelm yourself from the beginning, just take on the first task of learning the trade and move forward from there.

You can also find several other resources on the web for repairing computers, but this is definitely a great pace to start. If you decide to give it a go than the learning process will be ongoing and you will always have to be searching for information on specific models and brands because each machine is always different. One of the great things about fixing laptops and the video series I watched is that it really helps you get the fundamentals down with the inner workings of a laptop and teaches you to how to find the most common problems which is the best way to get started.

Most laptops have a touchpad that provides the full functionality of a traditional PC mouse. However, it often malfunctions either partially, or occasionally it will fail completely. The simple answer when it fails is to connect a USB mouse and use the laptop without the touchpad. Even after connecting a USB mouse the pointer will sometimes randomly move on the screen because the touchpad is still partly operating. The best solution is to disable or turn off the touchpad; there are two ways to do this.

Many laptops use a function key designed to enable and disable the touchpad. Most use the Fn key plus the F8 key to do this. If this does not work with your laptop look on the key legends of the function keys for what looks like a pointing finger; this is usually the key to press along with the Fn key. However, other laptops have a tiny switch either on the side or the palm rest of the case.

If your laptop seems not to have a touchpad disable key or switch, then you can permanently disable it from the Control Panel of Windows. To disable click on the Start Menu and select Control Panel, double-click on Mouse, click on Device Settings, and click on Disable. Finally click on OK and the touchpad will now be disabled.

If the touchpad operates correctly most of the time but just occasionally twitches or moves the pointer a few pixels, then there is software that may save you using a USB mouse when word processing.

Touchfreeze is a free utility that you can download and install on your laptop. It is a very small program that is simple to install and configure. Touchfreeze disables the touchpad only when you are using the keyboard, it has no effect on most touchpad movements and button clicks, etc. so will not affect the normal operation of the laptop. It helps overcome the annoying problems associated with a faulty touchpad; when using a word processor the pointer jumps to a different line or word, and you continue typing without noticing this until you check the text.

The actions you take to overcome a faulty touchpad depend of how you use your laptop. If you always use your laptop in a fixed place on a table, for example, then you may find that a USB mouse is acceptable all the time. However, if you primarily use your laptop on the move, you probably do not have space for a USB mouse so will either want the touchpad replaced or repaired.
