The power socket may be loose or cracked inside the laptop
We strip the laptop and check and replace parts as necessary. This usually requires soldering of a new socket onto the laptop motherboard.

OVERHEATING PROBLEMS

LIQUID SPILLAGE

Spilt liquid on your laptop
Keys or touchpad not working
Laptop does not power on anymore
Motherboard replacement
Accidents sometimes happen. If you have spilt liquid on your laptop, we DO NOT recommend you switch it on. Remove the battery from underneath the laptop and get in touch with us immediately. Even if you cannot see any liquid, the liquid normally manages to seep through the keyboard and into the electronics. You risk further damage if you power it on without getting it professionally stripped, cleaned and dried. If the laptop has dried already, you may have sticky keys or touchpad or keys not working, or the laptop may not power on at all. In this instance we can supply and fit the parts to get you running again.

MEMORY UPGRADES

We recommend a minimum of:-
1GB RAM for Windows XP, 2GB or more ideally
2GB RAM for Windows Vista, 4GB or more ideally
2GB RAM for Windows 7, 4GB or more ideally
We stock SDRAM, DDR, DDR2 and DDR3 of various types. Upgrading your RAM can really increase your performance.

HARD DRIVE/SSD UPGRADES

Hard drive nearly full
Slow loading files and programs
General performance is slow
Hard drives noticeably slow down when they are more than 50% full. Modern hard drives are constantly released with improved performance. SSD drives are the optimum in performance, several times faster than a traditional hard drive and are almost totally resistant to shock (unlike hard drives).
