Made to be mobile, laptops face serious risk of hard drive failure when sudden tilting is done while they are powered on. Symptoms include slow performance, error dialog boxes, blue screens, and clicking sounds.
HOW WE CAN HELP
We can repair your laptop if damage is due to water damage, liquid spillage, over heating, and factory defects.
HOW TO GET STARTED
Simply provide us the laptop model via email, chat, or phone call. A technician will check our inventory and get back to you with the cost of the hard drive. Hard drive replacement labor is $110 onsite.
Some laptop repairs may be covered by the manufacturer warranty. Your laptop repair may be covered if damage has occurred due to manufacture defects. Our technicians always check the manufacturer recalls list to see if your laptop repair may be covered by the manufacturer.
HOW TO PREVENT HARD DRIVE CRASHES:
Laptop hard drives are prone to crashing since vibrations and tilting may cause the reading arm to “crash’ with the spinning disks. One way to avoid this is by turning off or placing the laptop in sleep mode when you need to change position. Another way is to upgrade to a solid state hard drive. These hard drives do not have spinning disks inside or reading arms and therefore cannot experience crashing. Their prices have gone down significantly lately and may be worth the upgrade. When upgrading or replacing your hard drive, our technicians will inform you of the option to upgrade to a solid state hard drive.
