IT Clinic our laptop repair dublin service will look after any possible kind of issue you could be having with
your laptop/notebook. Laptops are portable computers and often get damaged while on the
go. Whether it’s a working laptop or a
gaming laptop or just for personal use, its highly inconvenient to be without it for any period of time so
when your laptop is out of action, call us to get back up and running asap.
issues – Laptops run
on the same software as pc computers and so they are susceptible to software
issues. Some common issues can be the laptop is running slow, you are
experiencing crashes, Blue screen of death, etc. One thing to note is that a
slow running laptop is not always a software issue. Causes of slowness can also
be a failing hard disk drive/ solid state drive or potentially fault memory
repair – A hinge connects the lid of the laptop to the base of the laptop. A
common issue is over time these hinges can become very loose and the laptop
screen fails to stand up on its own.
problem can be the hinge breaks entirely or separates from the internal casing.
Do not worry, in all cases we can provide a repair option. In some cases, we
can refit the original hinge to the casing. If that is not possible, we can
replace the hinges with new ones. Either way, you are back up and running.
replacements – We offer a
fast turn around screen replacement service. In most cases we can have the
screen replacement done in the same day. However, there are lots of different
sizes of screen and lots of different models. While we cannot stock them all we
do have a huge selection to get your repair done as fast as possible.
screen replacements – Touch
screens have become almost standard on modern laptops. Usually the touch screen
is made up of a regular LED screen with a glass digitizer in front. If you
happen to damage or crack this digitizer the touch function will no longer work
or be problematic. We can replace the front digitiser glass on your laptop. In some cases, the touch screen functionality can be built into the LED screen.
These can also be replaced should you run into difficulties.
laptops – Laptops are
very susceptible to overheating issues. Overheating can occur most commonly
when the laptop is not used on a firm on clean surface and is used on surfaces
like your lap, bed, sofa etc. While your laptop fan is running it draws in cool
air to keep the temperature down but if its on a surface like a sofa it will
also draw in dust and fibres. Over time the dust and fibres build up and make
it more difficult for cool air to flow through the laptop. After long periods
of time this can also cause the thermal paste on your CPU and GPU to become dry
and ineffective. You may begin to experience the laptop will shut down randomly
after being on for a while and in some cases, this can cause permanent damage
to the laptop’s CPU and GPU. At the I.T
Clinic we can strip, clean and apply fresh thermal paste to your laptop to keep
it running cool.
repair and replace – The DC
jack, or power port, is the part of the laptop that you plug your charging
cable into to charge the batter on your laptop. These ports are naturally prone
to electrical damage as they carry the power from your wall outlet all the way
to your laptop battery. In some cases, you may notice the charging tip getting
hot after long periods of charging your laptop. If this happens you should seek
professional help as its likely the DC port on your laptop is beginning to burn
out. The quicker this is seen to the better as further damage can occur to the
laptop mainboard if unchecked.
it is not uncommon for people to trip over their cable, knock over their
laptop, or have the laptop take a bump while plugged in. This can cause
physical damage to the dc jack. If this happens you will most likely need the
dc jack on your laptop replaced with a new one. Some of these DC jacks attach
with a cable harness and clip into the mainboard while others are soldered
directly on the mainboard. We repair and replace both kinds.
replacements – Keyboards do
not usually fail by themselves. They are one of the sturdier components of a
laptop. Usually when something goes wrong its physical damage such as a
spillage on to the keyboard or a key has fallen off. That does not mean that
keyboards can’t fail normally, they can. Some keyboards can be removed from
laptops without much hassle while others are in built to the panels/palmrest.
In the event that the keyboard is build into the top panel it is recommended to
replace the entire panel.
replacement – The
trackpad is the touch device you use to move the mouse around the screen on
your laptop. Like keyboards these are usually quite sturdy. However, they can
fail or suffer physical damage. Also, like keyboards they can be independently
fitted inside the laptop or in some cases they are embedded into the panel. In
both cases a repair is possible.
replacement – Batteries
inside your laptop allow the laptop to run without being plugged into a
charger. Batteries are the only component inside a laptop to have a definite
lifespan, they do not last forever. Over time you will notice that your laptop
will last shorter times in between being fully charged, this is normal. Typically,
a battery will last three years at peak performance from new. Some batteries
can simply be popped out and replaced without any hassle, but more modern
laptops have began concealing the battery internally. If you need an internal
battery replaced, we can open your laptop and fit a new one.
– The plug
that chargers your laptop. We keep a huge selection of chargers for sale if you
should lose or damage your own. We do not offer repair on laptop chargers.
repair – Everything
covered above regarding laptops also applies to MacBook’s. A MacBook is the
same as a laptop in most cases. It has all the same components and is
susceptible to the same kind of faults and damage. MacBook’s to tend to have
higher lifespan than laptops. They are a premium product, and such are usually
more expensive to repair. We have Apple certified expert technicians at the I.T
clinic who are ready and waiting to assist you with all your Apple MacBook
