Laptop Repair – When Your Laptop Experiences a Disastrous Failure
By Thomas James, Author of Laptop Repair Made Easy
You’d be surprised at how many people are intimidated at the thought of do-it-yourself laptop repair. They tend to assume that a laptop is far more complex to repair than a desktop PC. But actually, this is not necessary true. Laptops today are produced on the same modular line as desktop PCs are, which means that while there are some problems with your laptop that would indeed be difficult to fix, most other problems are actually very easy to handle.
For example, liquid spilled into a laptop results in multiple short circuits and system failures, and this is not easy to fix. On the other hand, something like a crashed hard drive or a keyboard or LCD screen replacement takes little or no specialized skill. The key to making laptop repair economical is to handle those elements of laptop repair that require little technical skill yourself, and to leave the more serious issues to the experts.
Just what you would do, in fact, with a desktop PC.
So just what level of technical skill does it take to replace your laptop’s hard drive? Almost none. All you have to do is to open your laptop, unplug the faulty component from its connectors, and then close the laptop again. It is really so simple a job that a ten year old child could probably do it after having seen someone do it once. However, there are some things that can make the task of repairing your laptop a little easier, and one of these things is having the right tools to hand.
Having some jeweler’s screwdrivers can be extremely useful because such a tool allows you to maneuver easily in the compact confines of a laptop. These screwdrivers are generally a good deal smaller than normal screwdrivers, and this makes it much simpler for you to reach those tiny and difficult to reach screws within your laptop.
Sufficient lighting is also a key to the successful repair of your laptop, so make sure you have a small and easily maneuverable lamp to hand that will provide you with illumination at any angle that you might require. Try to arrange a work area that allows you sufficient room in which to work, and which is also free of static electricity. This last point is especially important as static electricity can severely damage some of the components of a laptop. Acquire these tools, and never pay a laptop repair technician to do some simple job like replacing your laptop’s battery ever again.
