Are laptops worth repairing?

Consumer report says laptops are prone to having problems. They recommend no repair for computers purchased after a two-year period when repair costs exceed 50% for a replacement. Laptops typically lose 30 to 40 percent of its value in value over the past 30 years. The rule is that repairs for laptops should cost less than 25% of the original cost.

Fixing your laptop - things to check

We know laptops are prone to various kinds of unexpected problems. What is a laptop issue that needs attention? Please look at our services if you have a problem or want to get more detailed information on our service details. Regardless of whether the repairs are necessary, or it’s just a simple issue, we provide a 1-hour free diagnostic service to all our new customers.


Below are some examples of the most common laptop-related problems and ideas on how to fix them.

Laptop overheats

The computers generate heat that has to vent. When computers are hot you need to check the CPU temperature. Upon reaching around 105° C the computer will shut off for protection against a possible fire. You can monitor CPU temperature in Windows with software like RealTemp or Linux with Terminal command "sensor". The processor is usually hot when covered with dust. The easiest way to fix this problem is to blow a little compressed air into a fan to clean out dirt that accumulates over time.

The laptop won't turn on

Sometimes a laptop doesn’t turn on. Usually, the problem is simple. Please follow this guide to troubleshoot. If this doesn't work, you may have to change the motherboard or send it to the repair shop to resolve the problem. It requires replacing an input power source, which is attached by cable directly to the laptop. Sometimes motherboards work great but don't get power from bad ports.

The screen has dead pixels

Dead pixels appear on laptop screens as dots that do not change color. Typically, they are white, black, or green. Some people will ignore screen dead pixels (I have three at present on display) but large groups can really distract us. At Schrock Innovations we can fix dead pixels in no time. 

The battery dies quickly

In most cases, the battery should be replaced. Keep in mind that if you use intensive software, such as game editing software or simulation programs for laptops, these applications can burn up your battery. If your battery is over capacity, you should use the cfg command on Windows or the cppi command on Linux.

How does a laptop work?

A computer is not mystical, though its power is great. If you know everything about computers, the following information might refresh your memory, and it might help the rest of you learn how to troubleshoot and repair the issues shown below. 


It is essentially the computer's internal processor and is often called a processor. All program codes in the library that are used daily are executed. The CPU produces heat that is needed to dissipate in a specific manner - otherwise, the machine overheats & shuts down. Most laptops contain heat sinks that absorb heat, and fans, which blow cool air over them and transfer warm air to the back of the laptop. When the cooling unit has been removed, you need to apply the thermal paste onto the CPU so it can be cooled.


In contrast, the CPU and the motherboards are the brains and nervous systems. The motherboard is a thin board that occupies almost all the computer room and is usually the biggest component. Designed by fiberglass, it features tiny copper strands on top. The lines called traces are usually used by the CPU to communicate directly between other components, such as RAM and memory. Several thick old laptops have an integrated CPU socket that can be replaced, but these two components are often soldered together and cannot be changed separately.


The screen is the exterior of the laptop. The screens consist of several pixels, which change color separately. The size of the screen is measured by a number of pixels on either the width or height of the screen. The pixels in displays emit no light. Instead, the backlight changes the light emission of the pixels behind the pixels. Should either part fail, it must be completely rearranged.


Your program information will reside on an e-reader or SSD in your laptop. Because hard drives contain platters spinning high speed on your laptop, they can end up dying with traumatic impacts or breaking. (shout out to my hard disk - it survived falling downstairs). The SSD is less prone to a problem than the hard drive, and it's faster. So a switch will have a significant effect on your system too. Several SSDs are soldered directly into motherboards and are difficult to repair without a professional technician.


Before executing, the CPU code is stored temporarily in RAM. RAM components are either attached directly onto the motherboard (making repairers unhappy or placing it in an internal slot of the motherboard) and/or in an external slot (making the repairers happy). You can also replace old RAM with new RAM. Using more memory is not necessarily linked to higher computer speed as a whole.


This is the final part of this list, which is a battery. The battery is charged by the computer when no power is supplied. The battery provides the extra power resulting from the reactions that occur within its components. This process produces unintended side effects over time as the battery wears down. Thus, batteries are fundamentally consumable components that require maintenance over a period. Some manufacturers attach batteries to the batteries, so they are easier to replace. Using adhesive removers can be useful for the removal of sticky manufacturing tricks.

My outlook e-mail wasn't coming up when trying to open it and wasn't sure why. So I called Schrock Innovations,... explained the situation and was connected to their help desk. Parker took over and called me back in about 4 to 5 minutes with the problem resolved. I've always had the help desk at Schrock and they've always done an A+ job. My problem, at that time, was always resolved and was always explained to me in terms I could understand. I couldn't operate without Schrock there to assist when needed. They are GREAT!!!read more

Over the years, and several computers, we have been very pleased with the quality of the items we have purchased, and... the willingness of their staff members to provide assistance and answer questions. The Schrock Desk program has been invaluable, especially when setting up and getting oriented to new computers. Parker has been great and very responsive when I've had problems or concerns! We are very appreciative of having a business like Schrock available locally in our community!read more

Always an awesome experience provided by staff at the Schrock Innovations Lincoln Service center. We are are confident... in the staff's knowledge, integrity and commitment to servicing the technological needs of our immediate family, but also the same of our grandchildren who are in high school and college. My in-laws have also benefited from our association and faith in SCHROCK INNOVATIONS and their Lincoln Service Center Staff. It's difficult to find that kind of commitment to quality customer service today. Trust them implicitly to service our computing more

I went in with a laptop with a broken hinge, but aside from that everything else worked perfectly fine. It took them a... week and a half to get the hinge replaced, and when I took the laptop home I plugged it in and the screen would not turn on. I brought it back to them after the weekend and it took them another four days to call me and tell me they didn't know what was wrong with it. They said it was probably an issue with the motherboard and that I would need to get a new laptop. They told me that it was "pre-existing damage", but the laptop worked perfectly fine when I brought it in (aside from the hinge that left the laptop open at an angle). Even though they worked on the hinge, which contains the connection between the base of the laptop and the screen, they would not admit to any fault and claimed they did not have a correct power supply to test it. Now my laptop doesn't work at all, I haven't had a computer for 3 weeks, and I had to pay for the price of the hinge they put on it. The one thing I would expect a designated computer repair center to be good at would be fixing computers, but they only broke mine further. The service was slow and they did the opposite of what they were supposed to do: a simple hinge replacement on a laptop. When the screen wouldn't turn on, they claimed it was already broken when it had been in their possession the entire time. Please don't take your computer to be "repaired" here as you will be returned a non-functional device and be billed for more

Schrock worked on my computer for about 5 months.Liked their overall responsiveness, but... In March I was getting... windows blue screens. They could not figure out why and decided to wipe the software and memory clean. Worked for a while, but blue screens returned. They then replaced the solid state drive and wiped it clean again. Worked for a while but then when that proved not to work they changed out everything and determined by process of elimination that I needed a new cpu and motherboard. Seems to be working now, but we will see. Wish they would have done the last steps first. Was not more

Sorry, but I disagree with the many 5 star reviews. Brought my laptop in for diagnosis of problem with the battery... holding power. Paid $200+ for a new battery, waited longer than promised....and shortly later the battery died again - though laptop runs fine while plugged (sorta defeating any portability).I bought a new laptop. Took a chance with Schrock....guess it's back to the Geek more
