A very common laptop issue that we are faced with is a laptop not turning on or not charging.  There are a few reasons why this might be the case:

  • The battery itself has failed: a failed battery is typically the result of an aged battery.  In most cases, a battery failure can be fixed by purchasing and installing a new battery.
  • The charger has failed: like most other hardware components, the charger is susceptible to failure, general wear and tear can cause charger failure.  We test and ensure that every new charger supplied will work with your machine.
  • A charging port/jack has failed: charging connectors (or DC jacks) are susceptible to wear and tear as you connect and disconnect them from your laptop.  We commonly repair or replace charging ports/jacks. In most cases, these are repairable by dismantling the laptop down to the component level and replacing the faulty dc jack. I some cases the part is simply unplugged from the main board, some laptops require soldering to remove and replace the jack.

We also commonly replace dated Hard Disk Drives as well as broken keyboards, as well as fix any software issues you might find on your machine.

Need better WiFi at work or home? Our pick for a better coverage and speed.

We choose Ubiquiti devices for our WiFi solutions.

WiFi is an essential these days at work or home. We commonly hear complaints of poor speeds and weak signal. Place your WiFi device in a central location and try and raise it up off the ground. Your WiFi device might not be as good as what is available in the market… Not all devices are equal and using Ubiquiti devices makes a huge difference. We at Fix My Tech have configured WiFi using countless different brands and only recommend Ubiquiti.

A good starting point is the Ubiquiti UniFi AP AC Lite 802.11ac Dual Radio Access Point. It will outperform any standard WiFi you might have. It is a cost effective device (under $150) that does the job fantastically.

For larger areas the Ubiquiti AmpliFi HD Wireless AC1750 Router. Its a combination of devices working in together in a wireless mesh. TThe mesh kit will do almost any house or business and includes three devices working together in a mesh to give maximum signal and coverage. (costs approximately $550).

The suggestions above are general and might not be the best solution for your requirements. For a more thorough review of your WiFi needs/requirements feel free to reach out to our team. We will happily give you a comprehensive solution tailored for your specific requirements.
