Laptop and Computer Repair Brighton
Virus and Malware Removal
We specialize in virus removal & malware detection. Sometimes when browsing the internet, it is possible to get a virus by clicking on the wrong button. Or inadvertently downloading a virus / malware application without realizing.
Some less reputable websites also have hidden viruses that install themselves when you visit the website. Especially if you don’t have a good, commercial anti-virus installed (or if you have not updated your anti-virus).
Often this is not your fault as a user, but this can stop you from using your computer. As well as causing you to lose money and time.
Come visit us – We are very good at removing viruses and malware, and making sure your laptop functions properly.
Operating System Re-installation – Windows / Linux / Mac
If your computer has failed to start, or will not boot into the operating system (Windows, Mac OS X, Linux). It is possible that the software has corrupted for a variety of reasons.
Often caused by hardware failures (ram, hard drive, etc). More often than not, corrupted files or software that has failed to install or update are the reason for this. (Microsoft Windows updates are often the culprit causing blue screen errors).
We can run diagnostics on your laptop or computer to determine where the fault lies. We can then diagnose the fault and see whether hardware or software is causing the issue. Once we complete our diagnosis, we let you know and ask if you would like to proceed with the repair. Then once confirmed, we can fix the fault and get your computer working and help you get back to work.
Deep Clean – Physical
Machine getting hotter than expected? If so there may be a lot of dirt and debris that has built up inside the machine. Our Deep Clean service entails an engineer cleaning the inside of the machine. As well as replacing the thermal paste on any heat-sinks to ensure the machine runs as it should.
Laptop Screens and mobile phone screens are incredibly sensitive, and despite taking care of our precious phones & laptops, accidents happen.
If you’ve dropped your laptop and broken your screen, don’t panic – all is not lost! We’re here to help.
We keep as many screens for laptops and mobile phones in stock as possible. Meaning we can usually get your laptop or iPhone screen replaced on the same day. Our engineers change 10-15 screens a day, and are incredibly fast.
Hard Drive Failure or Replacement
The hard drive is one of the only components within a laptop that contains moving parts. They are consequently subject to “wear and tear” that can cause them to fail before most other components. They are also incredibly sensitive, a knock or bump to the machine can easily damage the drive. Which poses a threat to your valuable data.
We offer a service where we can repair or replace the drive within your laptop and recover your valuable data. We then format your laptop to as if it was new and copy your data on the Desktop.
The service we offer is incredibly flexible, if you’d like more storage we can fit a larger drive for you. If you’d like to save money we can fit a smaller drive.
Want a drive that’s faster and tougher? Ask us about our SSD installation service.
At Laptop Doctor we realize just how precious data is to people. Whether its important work that has taken months to complete, or photos and videos of family moments. We have multiple in-house utilities designed to recover as much of your data as possible. If the drive has suffered excessive physical damage it may still be recoverable. We can also offer to send the device to a external Data Recovery specialist to recover the data.
Liquid Damage Treatment
Accidents happen, whether its a glass of wine over the keyboard or your phone has taken an unexpected swim. The engineers have a vast wealth of experience when it comes to Liquid Damage. We have professional equipment to remove contaminants and prevent further damage. The most important thing is that you get this seen to as soon as possible. Getting it seen to promptly greatly increases the chance that it can be saved.
If only a small amount of spillage has occurred, often replacing the keyboard can get the device up and running again. We can replace any brand and model of keyboard and ensure that it has the same layout (e.g. UK, US, FR) as your previous one. We can also replace broken or missing keys.
DC Socket Repair/Replacement
The DC socket is where your charger plugs into the side of your laptop. Sometimes the repeated movement of the cable causes the socket to move and break. Until eventually it loses contact with the motherboard. As a result, when plugged in the indication light may not turn on. Or it may only show when the charger is held at a specific angle.
We can repair and replace DC sockets on all makes of laptops to solve this issue. Often the cheapest option for the customer is to repair the socket. We try this first and perform testing to ensure durability. In some instances the part may be too damaged to repair, and must be replaced.
We keep most brands of socket in stock ready for fitting meaning the repair process is surprisingly quick. In the rare event we are out of stock, we can usually get parts within a few days.
When we do a repair, we always offer warranty with the service.
If we fit a new part (screen, keyboard, etc.) you get three months warranty against any fault the part produces.
The installation of a new HDD comes with 1 year warranty against any fault of the drive.
On software related repairs we cannot offer any type of warranty. When we do a software service or format, we do our best to check that everything is working as expected. As well as checking the operating system works correctly etc. Although we cannot be responsible what happens after the item leaves our shop.
