Laptop Isn’t Turning On

Okay, the power comes into the plug, Dc jack, on the back or the side of the computer, which connects it to metal traces inside the mainboard of the computer. These will be connected to voltage regulators which often output 5 volts, 12 volts, 3.3 volts, and the CPU voltage. When you drop your laptop or the DC jack itself gets broken, no power goes to the motherboard and your laptop would not start.

Broken Laptop Screen

Power for the LCD display is usually done separately. Generally, LCD backlights require high voltage to operate. A component that might be called a power inverter will step the voltage up to what is needed for the backlight. Sometimes this inverter is a discrete and replaceable component, and sometimes just a chip on your mainboard, that it is also involved in the brightness control.

Computer Virus Infection

computer virus is an executable program that contains instructions to initiate some sort of “event” that affects the infected computer. Each virus has a unique event associated with it. These events and their effects can range from harmless to devastating. For example:
• Annoying messages.
• Reduced memory or disk space.
• Modification of data.
• Files overwritten or damaged.
• Hard drive erase

Laptop Battery Not Charging

The battery is an important part. It supplies power to the input-side of the voltage regulators, just like the power from the AC adapter. Additionally, there is a charging circuit, which uses the power from the AC adapter prior to the voltage regulators, to charge the battery of portable devices like smartbooks, netbooks and ultrabooks.

No Network Connection

With computers getting cheaper and cheaper these days, it is not uncommon for a household to have more than one PC. Why don’t you connect them in a Network and share files, play multi-player computer games, use printer attached to other computer or router, or just enjoy the Wi-Fi in your house or office.

Laptop Freezes and Crashes

If you’ve ever used Windows, chances are you’ve experienced the lovely shade of blue associated with the famous Windows Stop Error or ‘Blue Screen of Death.’ This error occurs whenever Windows senses software, hardware or driver error which will not allow it to continue operating properly. Troubleshooting that kind of problems is a daily routine at 911 Tech Support. Give us a call and our professional staff will find the right solution for you computer problem.

Computer Data Loss

Accidentally deleting a file or formatting a hard drive or floppy disk is a common reason for data loss. Data recovery can become complicated if you overwrite on the storage device that has the lost data. Remember, not all data may be recoverable especially when the computer’s hard drive is physically damaged, but we have tools that can put the odds in your favor. More about computer data recovery and disaster recovery.

Water Damage, Spilled Liquid

Laptops exposed to small amounts of spilled liquid are repairable in some cases. Liquid can cause the following types of damage:
• Short circuit due to wet liquid (problem goes away after liquid evaporates)
• Short circuit due to dried liquid residue
• Corrosion (especially bad with soda such as Coke or Pepsi)
• Electronic components damaged by above short circuits

Laptop Randomly Turns Off

When a laptop gets too hot, it will typically shut itself down to protect the internal components from overheating. If this is happening to you, track down the cause of the heat. For instance, is there anything blocking the vents, such as dust or a blanket, that’s preventing the vents from exhausting hot air? A can of compressed air can be used to blow dust out of the vents. Random shutdowns may also occur due to an overheated battery or short circuit within the laptop.

Server and Software Crashes

Even if you have no immediate plans to add a server to your place of business, it’s good to at least know the basics. After all, as your company evolves, someday you might need a server to handle the things personal PCs simply can’t.

Slow Computer Performance

For chronically slow performance, defragment your hard drive and make sure it has at least a few GB of free space. Consider upgrading with an SSD, a hybrid drive, and/or more RAM. Learn more about our slow computer diagnosis and repair service.
