Common HP Laptop Problems We Fixed in Brisbane
One of the common problems we see is the mechanical and power issues with the HP (Hewlett-Packard) Laptops. For example: the laptop open/close hinges tend to snap (but worse yet, this may not be covered under warranty). From experience in repairing Laptops, we find that this issue is caused by poor assembly, or poor attention to the smaller details, such as the screws that hold the hinge. This in effect causes the LCD screen to become loose over time and fall out (this in turn causes the hinge to tear off the plastic stand that is there to secure it to the base of the laptop.).
Another common issue our valued customers in Brisbane Australia face is Power (or laptop charger) problems. HP Pavilion series usually comes to us with power jack problems. Whether it is the internal jack surging, or being dislodged, and even the power supply not charging the Laptop anymore.
Also, we’ve fixed Motherboard (HP Pavilion series & HP F series) issues as well. Usually the motherboard problems occur when the Laptop decides to randomly shutdown, or halt on startup. This is usually due to Laptop getting too hot and overheating, which if left long enough, the Laptop may be un-repairable and may need a new motherboard.
We found that the frequent shutdown and boot up failures are caused by conflicts in the wireless cards installed internally to these Laptops, and the drivers aren’t compatible with certain Windows versions.
Buying a New Laptop
When you are thinking of purchasing a new Laptop, you need to consider a variety of things, such as reliability, efficiency, productivity, and overall design. These factors all help in the overall satisfaction of the choice of Laptop you choose to purchase. Questions need to be asked such as;
- Is the Laptop reliable?
- Does it have good battery life?
- Is it easy to use? Is the design lightweight and does it look good?
Usually, Laptops are bought for portability and reliability, so its wise to take your time to find the ‘perfect’ Laptop for yourself. Don’t rush out and buy the first Laptop you see because it looks good, and or is cheap. Research the Laptop you are looking for, also the features you want and need. Remember that you usually get what you pay for. If there is a particular laptop brand model that previous had issues, chances are you might have the same issue, after millions of Laptops being made there are bound to be some faulty ones in the bunch.
Upgrades Testing & Laptop Repairs in Brisbane
With a Laptop, although there are only certain things you can do to upgrade, it may be more cost-effective solution to upgrade the Laptop RAM for speed, and Hard Disk Drive (HDD) for storage and performance. Keep in mind that if other laptop repairers in Brisbane already advised you to buy certain parts for upgrades, you may not really need them. Simply remember The Electronic Fix provides honest and professional advice:
- The best Upgrade for performance is usually upgrading the RAM to approximately 8GB.
- And, the Hard Disk Drive to 256GB SSD (Solid State Drive) depending on the storage size you are after.
- Anymore than this is considered ‘overkill’ and you may be getting ripped off.
