Reasons Why You Need to Get Your Laptop Fixed Fast

Once accessible to only nobility, laptops have gone mainstream, bringing with them the power to take an idea from concept to prototype, enhancing and accelerating the creative design process, helping students connect the dots between an academic degree and career preparedness. In our modern era, laptops are much more powerful than what they used to be a couple of years before – all thanks to technological advancements.

Laptops are truly technological marvels bringing the unparalleled combination of convenience, flexibility, and mobility to our daily lives. They showcase how human intellect can meet the challenges of modern life, providing tools that enable us to operate efficiently while exposed to challenging or unusual circumstances.

However, despite being the prime movers, true centerpieces of the modern world that is increasingly becoming a personal extension of ourselves, they are poised for failure due to electromechanical components they are built with.

Laptops’ durability will vary from model to model, brand to brand, and is also dependent on a myriad of factors, including care, environment, usage, and overall quality. Basically, their lifespan could vary, but in general, it’s fair to say that the average lifespan for a laptop is 2-5 years. When your laptop comes to the end of its life cycle, the consequences of improper maintenance or just insufficient hardware maintenance, considering that it is an electromechanical machine, maybe catastrophic for your personal or your business’ overall productivity. Thus regardless of what brand laptop your use, getting it repaired when it looks to be broken down and failing, is in most cases, the right thing to do at the right time.

Following are some examples of typical laptop malfunctions which will most likely occur over a period of time:

  • Loud or broken fan: This means that dust has found its way inside and collected on the processive chipset components. This may lead to various malfunctions and could cause data loss as well. broken-laptop-fan
  • Faulty battery or slow charging: Eventually, all batteries start degrading and may need replacement. Typically, within 2-3 years of use, the charge capacity of the original battery drops below 80%, which shouldn’t come as a surprise as the power supply or the battery itself is mostly made of chemicals and elements which, with time, will deteriorate.
  • Problems with Hard-drives: Over time and with continued use, your hard drive will continue to accumulate both read and write cycles. Thus, due to the wear on the hard drive, the chances are that data or file corruption will occur, leading to various malfunctions and computer errors.
  • Virus infection: Early detection of computer viruses is a top priority as it could also lead to data corruption. Depending on the virus itself, it will spread itself to all the drives connected to your computer, including the external storage devices. This could result in a complete loss of all your data.
  • Broken Keyboard or Touch pad: It’s easy to underestimate the changes you put your workhorse through on a regular basis, but it’s not uncommon for us to see that keyboards are often damaged, cracked or torn, due to misuse or poor maintenance. laptop-broken-keyboard
  • Damaged or Cracked Display: It’s not rare to see the damage on a display due to a fall from a table or desk. You might not even notice the damage itself, but you may see some visual changes such as black spots or lines in the display, dead pixels, and more.
