Mac or PC? Chromebook or Netbook? Apple, Dell, Sony or Google? At Computer Answers, we have seen and repaired every kind of laptop computer made over the last sixteen years. We understand that your laptop is not just a peripheral tool, a supporting device for your business, work or pleasure. Since the leap forward in processor power and ultra-light materials made over the last decade, we know that little exaggeration that slim laptop is both your portable office and your entertainment center all in one case you carry over your shoulder. And now, it’s not working. Select the option below that’s best for you and let’s get you back to normal.
Why Choose Us For Your Laptop Repair?
Laptops are not made so that their owners can service them on their own. In fact, if you try to do that, you may well void the warranty and create an even larger problem. What you need to do as soon as your laptop’s performance starts to lag is to call in a professional who knows your computer and can fix it at the lowest cost possible.
Every laptop is slightly different from any other. For instance, a MacBook Air has no DVD drive. A Chromebook has only a rudimentary hard drive for its operating system. Yet, there are general categories of problems we have seen at Computer Answers over the years and we list six of those at the bottom of this page. If you do not see your issue listed, that only means that your laptop’s breakdown is slightly unusual, but it is not unique. A Computer Answers technician has seen it before and successfully repaired it before.

Computer Answers will find these dangerous programs and eliminate them. We will also advise you how to best protect your laptop – and your privacy – from future attack.

Thankfully, this is easily solved at Computer Answers. Within minutes, we can upgrade or replace your RAM chips. Your laptop will not be back where it was, it will be better than when you bought it.

The greatest enemy your laptop faces is not a virus, is not spyware, it is water.

At Computer Answers we have fixed or replaced hundreds of displays and we will do the same for you, quickly and at the lowest possible cost.
Laptop Hard Drive Repair/Replacement
Hardware can usually be repaired and always can be replaced. Information can be lost forever with disastrous results.

We can even move those files for you to a new external hard drive or to your new laptop.
