Notebooks – I.T. Service Help When You Need It

Notebooks (aka laptops or netbooks) are common place with companies setting up work from home users and smaller satellite offices. As a result, laptops get beat up in everyday use and will often require maintenance more often than a desktop. You can expect the same level of knowledge and service for your laptop as your PC. Computer Repair Carrollton is dedicated to getting your business laptop  back up and running and making you mobile once again.

Common Problems and Possible Solutions:

Problem: Laptop makes a weird noise when starting up

Laptop components fit into such a small space that over the course of regular use, wires and cables can become unset and move around. When you start up your laptop and you hear a weird noise, there are typically two reasons.

  1. Your hard drive is beginning to fail and is having a hard time starting up.
  2. One of your internal connections have come loose and is brushing against a fan or the cooling fan has an issue

For #1, the best solution is to make a backup of your hard drive and buy a new one. Most hard drives are built to the same specifications, so they will fit into the same location on your laptop.

For issue #2, you will need to get to the inner workings of your laptop and move (or re-seat) the loose connector or replace a failing fan.  If you feel like these solutions are beyond your desire to handle, give us a call at 972-418-2000 and we will get to work!

Problem: Screen is black but computer is on

There are a couple of reasons why your screen would be black while it’s turned on.

  1. Your display is out and needs to be replaced
  2. a cable or wire has become un-seated and needs to be adjusted
  3. Your video card is going out

Look at your laptop screen for any signs of cracks or damage. Did you recently drop your computer? Second, if you have access to a monitor, hook it up to your laptop and see if the screen shows up there. If it does, you know your video card is OK.

We recommend you contact us at 972-418-2000 to schedule a time to bring your laptop in for us to look at and repair for you.
