Laptop issues - what causes them?

We use our laptops for several tasks every day and the convenience of being able to travel with them means they’re often in our bag, going to many places. Even if you just have one sitting at home, over time, the issues above can be caused by any of the following:

  • Dropping the laptop from your desk, sofa or bed
  • Dust accumulation – this happens even if you aren’t near windows or doors
  • Faulty components like RAM chips, circuitry, hard drives and fans
  • Hair, dry skin fragments, pet fur (those cute Zoom interruptions have a price!)
  • Liquid spills like coffee, water, tea, Coke
    Power fluctuations
  • Software incompatibilities and corruptions from viruses
  • Time – most laptops have a usage life of 5 years.

Most of these causes can be mitigated with regular and ad hoc maintenance before they spiral into larger problems. Complete our easy booking form to give us the info needed to fix your laptop problem. If you want to try and fix it yourself, a quick online search should be able to give you videos that walk you through the process.

Laptop Issues Frequently Asked Questions

Here are some of the most common questions we get asked. You might find it helpful to read through.

We’ll assess the damage to your Laptop and give you an honest appraisal of how to fix it. If it’s a write-off, we’ll recover your data and prepare an insurance report to help you get some money back.

Batteries start losing capacity after a couple of years. Give us a call and tell us your Laptop serial number so we can confirm if we can replace your battery.

Absolutely! We’ll run diagnostics to confirm the root cause, give you a few options and then put the best solution in place, whether it’s installing updated drivers for your Laptop or replacing your hard drive with a brand-new Solid-State Drive that boots up in less than 3 seconds.

We can assess the screen and confirm if it’s fixable or can be replaced with one of our genuine third-party components.

Of course, you can! There are many videos on the internet that can guide you and it’s a fun way to learn about doing basic maintenance and repairs for your laptop. If you run into trouble or complex issues, you can call the professionals at Buzztime and trust that we’ve got your back.

Laptops can actually get you a lot of mileage if you take regular care of them. A general rule of thumb however is that if a laptop repair costs more than 60% the price of a new laptop, you might want to consider getting a new one, especially if yours is more than five years old. Less than that? it’s probably worth fixing.

At Buzztime, we can assess, run maintenance and do basic repairs on your laptop for $150. If complex issues or many problems are identified, we’ll give you a no-obligation quote after assessing.

Friendly and great service. I made the mistake of having Buzztime change out the battery instead of me having Apple diagnose the problem first. Buzztime $129 for third party battery. Apple $115 for Apple battery. Kicking myself. So be sure before hand.

I’ve had my phone repaired a couple of times with Buzztime (new battery and phone screen) and the staff are always polite and do such a good job and really quick. Within half each each tie. No complaints here. Would recommend them to anyone. Also competitive in price.
