Laptops are one of the coolest inventions since the flux capacitor… wait, those don’t actually exist… You get the idea. Light and portable, yet powerful enough to run all your applications so you can take everything you need on the road. Now that prices have dropped, laptops are even a great option to replace your desktop computer.
In addition to the usual virus and malware hazards, there are some issues that laptops are susceptible to. These issues include broken keys, battery failure, cable fraying, and fan overheating. Don’t let a laptop on the fritz stall your freewheeling ways. If your laptop is not working correctly, it can really disrupt your day-to-day life. We all depend on our laptops for many things: work, communicating with friends and family, entertainment, learning, etc. Because of how important it is, you probably want to get your laptop fixed as quickly as possible.
Finding the most reliable laptop repair shop requires references and mobility. Sometimes you can’t leave your house or your laptop can’t leave the office. We totally understand that, which is why our friendly and expert service technicians can come to you. Our on-site service to your home or office is as low as $79.
Removing Laptop Virus
Our free diagnostic at ClickAway can catch most viruses. Many laptop viruses start with irritating popup ads, redirects to sites you've never heard of or blocked antivirus websites. We can remove most viruses by taking these steps:
- Boot your computer into safe mode
- Download antivirus software onto a separate computer and transfer it to your laptop
- Run the antivirus software and eliminate the virus
If the virus can’t be detected through antivirus software, we can open the registry editor. There, we find the programs that have been loaded by the virus, and disable or delete them. Once we do this, your computer should go back to operating normally again. In some rare cases, the virus may have infected key components of your operating system. If so, the only way to remove the virus will be to reformat your hard drive and reinstall the OS. However, this isn’t necessary in most cases.
Laptop Memory Upgrade
If your laptop will no longer boot up, it may be because one of your memory sticks has gone bad. We can open the laptop and use a process of elimination to determine which stick is causing the problem. We can then replace that particular RAM stick, allowing your laptop to boot up normally again. Even if your laptop memory is working correctly, you may not have enough memory to do the things you want with it. For example, you may want to play 3D games or do video editing, which are very memory intensive applications. We can upgrade your laptop’s memory so it will do what you want it to.
Laptop Hard Drive Replacement and Repair
If your laptop has been showing you error messages and crashing randomly, it may be because there is a problem with your hard drive. ClickAway's award winning service technicians can check the status of your hard drive. If your hard drive is not in danger of failing but is still causing crashes, we can eliminate errors using check disk. We can also reinstall your hard drive’s device drivers if the hard drive is not being recognized. If there is something physically wrong with your hard drive, we can replace damaged or loose cables, the hard drive PCB, or even the hard drive itself. Data transfer can also be included.
We can improve your battery life
Another common problem that laptop owners face is a battery that keeps draining too quickly. Using our remote support service, we can identify what services and components are causing the power drain. We can then consult with you about which of these features of your laptop you need and which can be dispensed with. This will allow you to extend battery life without unduly harming your laptop’s performance. We walk you step-by-step through the process of disabling these services and components. This will give you the knowledge needed to re-enable these laptop features if you need them in the future. The best part (as mentioned earlier) we can do it remotely, in your home or office or in one of our convenient Northern California shops.
