From old to new, Mac to PC, and the occasional oddity. We can replace or fix just about any laptop or notebook screen.
Why pay $300, shipping, and be without your computer for up to six weeks? We can replace your screen right here in Reno. And often for a fraction of the cost while you wait!
If you broke more than your screen, which often happens from a fall, we can fix that, too! From broken hinges to daiquiri-soaked keyboards, we can help.
We can give most quotes online with a full model number and picture of the damage.
Did your three-year-old put you down? Maybe the family pet? Or just a freak accident? If you broke your charging port or DC jack we can get it repaired or replaced on your laptop and some other devices.
It doesn't matter if your jack is soldered to your main board or a wiring harness to your motherboard. We can get fix it and get you back up and running.
We have a flat rate of $139.95 OR LESS + parts on most all DC jack replacements. Yes, OR LESS, some of the modular (wiring harnesses) can have a quicker fix than the soldering jobs and we find it only fair to charge less for the quicker jobs.
Is your laptop screen coming unhinged?
Well, you don't need to!!!
We can fix your laptop hinge! We can replace your laptop hinge(s) or fix broken pieces.
Just send us a picture and your complete laptop model, or come on down to the laptop body shop.
Most hinge replacements can be done quickly, once the new hinge(s) arrive. And sometimes it's not the hinges that break, but rather the plastic housing. If it is the plastic housing there is always a possibility of us rebuilding it right here at the laptop body shop. Saving you some more mulah!
Contact us now before you break your screen, video cable, or WiFi antenna cables.
Fire, blackouts, and hornet's nests. Three signs of fan failure. Okay, so there may not be fire, but if your laptop is hot to the touch or has sudden shutdowns your fan may have failed or be failing. The other sign is a lot of noise, like a swarm of angry, flying insects. Let us be your exterminator!
Just about any laptop fan can be replaced. Get your laptop fixed before it's too late and you kill your precious laptop!
"Peter?! Why are there no E's in your TPS report?"
Need a new keyboard so you don't get fired or flunked? Don't blame it on Samir, give Credo Technology Group a call!
Most all PC keyboard replacements start at $50, including keyboard and labor. MacBook's start at $90. Some of the new 'Ultrabooks' cost much more to fix.
Clicker not clicking? External mouse just not doing it for airplane and road trips?
Maybe you feel like you're back in the cold war and are about to launch a missile.
Let us keep the missiles in their silos and get that touchpad fixed or replaced.
Bring in your laptop or MacBook, we'll assess the damage, and let you know all of your options, not just the most expensive route.
Warning!!! Geek-speak ahead! (Though, we're a non-geek kind of company.)
Most people don't know that "Laptop" is a misnomer. If you've been suffocating your laptop with your thighs, pillow, bed or other soft surface, you may have overheated it to the point that the solder on the chipsets has shifted.
We have ways of reflowing or reballing the solder to the chipsets. This is one of the services that we do not charge for if there is no success, nor can we give our typical guarantee if it fails again. However, we will attempt the endeavor a second time at no additional charge.
Unfortunately, dents, dings, and scratches are going to be there to stay. But if you've broken something that you can't find a part for, or the price of the part seems overly inflated by 1000% (yes, that happens), then you know why we've created the Laptop Body Shop.
It truly doesn't matter what the part on the body, or casing, has broken, if the laptop functions then we probably have a way of "fixing" the issue.
Let our trained technicians recreate, fix, or just get that part working again and let you get back to laptopping, instead of lab topping!
So, you left that flash drive plugged in and set your coffee cup on it. *SNAP!* *EXPLETIVE!* *GRIMMACE* And that was your last working USB port.
The majority of laptops have a 'daughterboard' that hosts at least one or two of your USB ports, and can be easily replaced, aside from having to tear the entire laptop apart.
Audio jacks are another thing. Not all motherboards have the audio jacks on a daughterboard. This can be a tough fix and not always possible without soldering or motherboard replacement. Be kind to your audio jacks! They give you YouTube, Pandora, and Spotify!
What use is your laptop if you can't turn it on? Maybe you've turned it on just one too many times? Maybe you thought you could get by with sticking a pen in the empty socket? But now you have that report due and nothing will work. You could rip out the wires and touch them together (NO, DON'T TRY THAT!).
The majority of laptops have replacement buttons and most of them do not take long to fix. Just give us a call, send us an email, stop on by, or use our contact form for a quote.
Please include your full make and model #, and a photo, if possible.
If you're one to use your optical drive then we understand how sorely you would miss it if your drive broke.
Many newer ultrabooks, netbooks, Chromebooks, MacBook Airs, and the like, do not come with CD/DVD/Blu-ray drives, but yours did, and you use it like the LaserDisc it once was.
If Uncle Bob thought it was a coffee cup holder or it just became a fur-gatherer for the family pet, it doesn't matter, we can fix or replace your CD/DVD/Blu-ray drive and get you back to creating those "mix-tapes."
For its entire life, it was left plugged in, but now you have that traveling sales job and need to take your laptop from place to place, and your laptop battery doesn't hold a charge.
Most off-brand batteries start out at about $35+tax and can be replaced in seconds. MacBook Unibodies start at about $100+tax including labor and can be done fairly quickly by trained hands with the proper tools.
