If the repair requires parts, you can either provide them to us or let us purchase them. You won't pay for the repair, only the cost of new parts.
Berlin (PRWEB) January 7, 2009
For the first time anywhere, Repair4Laptop (http://repair4laptop.org/)] is offering notebook computer users everywhere a valuable service free of charge. Send them a problem notebook computer and they will fix it. Their comprehensive online collection of guides for laptop repair, upgrades, cleaning and modding already constitute the biggest repository of notebook computer repair information on the Internet. But they want to make their collection even bigger and compile additional information to create even more laptop repair guides covering different computer makers, models, or different repair techniques.
"Give your broken laptop or notebook to us, we will fix it for free," said Werner Heuser of Repair4Laptop. "If the repair requires parts, you can either provide them to us or let us purchase them. You won't pay for the repair, only the cost of new parts."
So if a computer needs a new LCD, users pay only the cost of a replacement screen, not the cost to put it in. If no parts and components are needed, for example, if all that is needed is a thorough laptop cleaning, the service is completely free.
Do-it-yourself laptop and notebook repair can be helpful, especially if professional service is expensive or too time consuming. Even if repair companies offer one day shipping, the entire process from the time people send in their laptop to the time they get the computer back will take at least three days. In other cases, people might not want to reveal precious personal data on the hard disk. In that case, users are on their own if something goes wrong.
A common way to make mobile computers last longer or meet current standards is to upgrade the memory and add a bigger hard disk drive. "Often this is an easy task, which does not require expert knowledge," said Heuser. "But as laptops become smaller, even simple notebook computer upgrades require knowing some tips and tricks to get the case open and the job done without breaking something."
Almost no laptop or notebook manufacturers provide free service manuals. Here the free do-it-yourself tutorials provided at Repair4Laptop come in handy. These guides are helpful for both newbies as well as professionals and experts.
Repair4Laptop's free notebook computer repair service is very useful in a range of situations. Sometimes users need comprehensive notebook cleaning if, for example, they spill liquid onto the computer. Another example is the cleaning of a laptop or notebook fan. Bins of dust blocking the fan are one of the most common causes of overheating and laptop failure. But reaching the fan for cleaning can be difficult for a non-techie.
Repair4Laptop has been running since March 2005. It contains a wealth of good information on laptop and notebook repair as well as fixing and upgrading components, parts and accessories.
