LCD Screens / Monitors



We can repair/replace your computer screen. If your laptop is in for a screen repair, considering upgrading to a higher resolution, glossy finish screen. The enhanced appearance and sharper image will provide a better experience in viewing graphics, DVD movies and more.


Hard Drives



Hard drives are the place where all of your programs, files and core operating systems components are stored and accessed. They are hundreds of times slower in their ability to access information compared to RAM and processor power. We have hard drive solutions to speed up your system with more capacity, faster spindle speeds and larger buffers. All this translates into your computer starting and running faster.


Processor



Let us upgrade your laptop or PC CPU, to give you a more powerful computer. Laptop processors are definitely different than desktop processors, but can still be changed out for a faster chip. Depending on your motherboard chipset you can upgrade to a dual-core, a faster clock speed or higher cache CPU. Processor upgrades are available in both Intel and AMD platforms.


Memory



Memory is a simple way to add more performance to your system. Memory, also called RAM, acts as a storage location for commonly accessed files, programs and essential instructions in use during the time your computer is on. With the introduction of Windows Vista, a minimum of one gigabyte of memory is essential just to tolerate using the OS. Two gigabytes is a better option.


Video Cards



A commonly asked question we get is how to upgrade video cards. If the card is dedicated, or not integrated, an upgrade is possible. Video card upgrades are a great idea for gamers and graphic designers. A dedicated video card also has it's own onboard memory, so it does not draw from the computer's memory, adding additional performance.


Optical Drives



Whether your laptop or PC came with a DVD-CDRW, a DVD ROM only, a CD-RW only, etc... You can easily upgrade to a dual layer DVD burner.


System Optimization



Though it is not technically an upgrade, system optimization is an easy way to boost performance in your computer. This simple software and hardware analysis can increase the speed at which your system performs while reducing the time it takes to access programs and start up. It includes removing unnecessary software, in depth disk defragmentation and a complete security scan for viruses and spyware.


Laptop Power Jack Repair



A broken power jack does not mean your laptop is ready for replacement. This is a cost effective repair that can bring your laptop back to full use again.




Symptoms of a broken power jack: - The laptop only runs when you keep the power cord in a certain direction. - The laptop only runs on battery power. - The laptop will not charge the battery. - The laptop switches from AC power to battery power intermittently. - The unit suddenly shuts off - Sparks come out of the back of the laptop.

The wrong information some repair centers give: While many computer repair centers are aware of this issue, most are not. Many, including the large nationwide stores and the laptop's manufacturer, will either tell you the machine is not repairable or that it needs a new motherboard. These quotes usually range from $500 - $800.

How jacks break: - Some power jacks fail under normal operation of your computer. After a year or two of usage, parts just 'come loose' on certain models. - Sometimes the laptop gets dropped and the cord yanks the jack loose. - People, pets and vaccum cleaners all trip over laptop power cords on a daily basis. - The laptop is moved around a lot. After the jack is moved back and forth enough times, it comes loose.

Getting a new power jack installed by us: This is a repair we do on a daily basis on ALL brands of laptops for customers and other computer stores. A flat rate covers all parts and labor.
