Warranty Options For Laptop Repairs

We all adore our laptop until the day it doesn't function the way we would like, or worse than this - not at all. We need to be mobile and we need to be connected making the laptop one of our best friends along with our cell phone. However when the worse case scenario occurs there are a few things we should take into account before deciding that laptop repair is the best option - with this being the obvious option what else can we consider?

Laptop repair can be a costly expense just to have the same machine back in our hands with the possibility of having another problem and more expense to worry about in the near future. What if someone told you that you could get cash for your existing laptop, functioning or not, regardless of it´s condition, despite it being used as a doormat by the children, and having the early morning coffee split on it numerous times.

There is now a great way to trade in your old laptop, receive a cash payment for it and this can then subsidize the purchase of a brand new computer at the same expense of paying if you had considered laptop repair - the only difference being there is no waiting for the store to call and tell you it´s not quite ready for collection, or it is going to cost a little more than first quoted, and you get a brand new laptop that is up to date. Sounds like a great way to go, but how and where can this all be done?

It is quite a straight forward process, and a lot easier than taking the laptop for repair, all you have to do is go to a site such as www.cashforlaptops.com, they will give you a quote for your current laptop, in ANY condition, whether it is working fine, just won´t turn on, it has a cracked screen or any other damage you can possibly imagine. Once you have your quote they will rush you a prepaid box for you to rap up and return the laptop to them, once they receive the package they process your used laptop the same day - formatting the hard drive is a primary task and from there your check is mailed direct to you. No cost involved from you, just a payment in your hand in no time, quite the opposite of the laptop repair process!

With the above said, having to choose between receiving a payment to dampen the cost of a new laptop, or pay a ghastly figure for the laptop repair, it not expands the options, it pretty much rules the original idea out. With this great way to trade in, regardless of the condition, it could change the way we think when we have to apprehend the thought of laptop repair and what to do when the worst happens - because we know negative occurrences will happen all we can do is take the best from them.

People entering the field of computer repair need to do quite a bit of research to find all the tools they need to be able to fix the long list of problems that computers and laptops face. When I first started, I used to carry a huge toolkit full of all sorts of devices. The bag itself looked pretty impressive and had almost anything you might ever need. But as time went on, I discovered that 99% of the issues you need to resolve can be taken care of with just a basic set of technical equipment.

If you are going to perform laptop repair as well as desktop services, I recommend carrying a precision screwdriver tool kit. They cost somewhere around $10.00 and they are by far the most useful item I carry. Laptops and Macbooks especially tend to use really small screws to hold components together. Small torx screws are pretty much an entry barrier for new technicians who don't have the experience to know that they even needed a small torx screwdriver.

The second best tool for computer repair is a USB stick. You can store every single program you will ever need to troubleshoot a computer problem on one little stick. I store multiple types of anti-virus programs, anti-malware programs, rkill utilities, Hijackthis installations, popular browser install kits, data back up software, data transfer software and recovery programs. On top of storing your repair software, you can also use the USB key to transfer drivers and other files that you often need to download on-site.

While the USB stick and the precision screwdrivers will get your through 90% of your problems, you will need a very diverse kit for the remaining problems. You'll need to get a CD pouch full of operating system disks and manufacturer recovery disks. Don't forget that you'll need one of each kind for both 32bit and 64 bit operating systems. Then, you'll also need to carry a power supply tester for computer repair. On the laptop repair side, you will need to invest in a voltmeter to troubleshoot inverter problems and dc power jack issues.

Finally, the last additions to your toolkit will be standard technician items. Flashlights, measuring tape, thermal paste, electrical tape, extra screws and more... Most of these tools will rarely be used. But when you need them, you'll really wish you had them. As you get more comfortable doing computer repair, you'll be able to custom tailor your kit to your personal preferences. With enough experience, you might decide to add soldering iron and a heat gun for more advanced board level repairs.

Laptop Hardware Repair

Unlike desktop computers, laptops are cute things that people can carry around. Laptop repairs pose less of a problem because of it, as lugging it off to the laptop service center is not much of an ordeal when on site service is not available. While this advantage because of its size is very much there, laptops are also better covered by warranties compared to other types of machines. This warranty protection not only makes laptop repairs easily available, it also makes buying of a new laptop much easier.

Every computer, whether laptop or desktop, is covered by the manufacturers warranty at the time of purchase. After that, many laptop manufacturers offer extended warranties that will cover all necessary laptop repairs, for the payment of a specified sum. These warranties may be on site warranties, where the computer technician will come to the location of the client and do the repairing, or warranties where the user will have to take the machine to the laptop service center of the warranty provider.

Warranties that provide on site help would obviously be more expensive, especially if the machine is located at quite a distance from the laptop service center. The other would work out cheaper, and the user will not be inconvenienced so far as he is not living too far away from the service center. The interesting part of extended laptop warranties is that it gets cheaper every successive year. The first year of the warranty, when laptop repairs could be few as the machine will be comparatively new, could turn out to be a bit expensive for the user. But after that, the annual charges will come down, and will decrease further every following year.

A three-year extended warranty could cost the computer owner about one-fourth the cost of the computer. Those who can fix their laptop problems themselves may find it a bit costly. But for those with limited technical know how this can be very helpful as it will cover his entire laptop repairs requirements for the ensuing three years. It is not just laptop service that an extended warranty covers. Most of these warranties have a provision whereby when a fourth repair becomes necessary for the laptop, the warranty provider will replace the machine rather than repair it. This provision, known as 'no lemon policy, enables the computer owner to have a new computer in the place of the old one.

In short, these warranties cover more than just laptop repairs. Under the terms of the extended warranty, the new machine will not exceed the price of the one that was covered by the warranty. Still, even if it is costlier, the laptop owner generally has to pay only the difference in the cost, which in most cases would be minimal. All types of laptop service will be available without warranty also. There are companies catering to different computer repair needs including for a laptop. Many of them have statewide and countrywide branches. Those who are not covered by any type of warranties should select one such laptop service provider so that they are not left in the lurch when their laptop strikes work.

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!
