Specific MacBook Problems
Does Your Keyboard Have A Mind Of Its Own?
You hit A and G pops out, or maybe it doesn’t register you pressed a key at all. This is a common problem as the keyboard is the first part of the laptop to succumb to liquid damage during a spill, and one of the most used parts of the machine; being banged on all the time. Most keyboard issues are caused from high humidity or liquid damage.
We Can Replace Your Keyboard And Fix Your Problem
We stock most keyboards and can often replace them with same day service, without a parts order. We even do the Retina MacBook Pro keyboard replacements; many repair shops do not offer this repair without replacing the entire top case. Apple designed some of their laptops in a way where the keyboard is not replaceable, and replacing the top case is very expensive. We can replace the keyboard without replacing the entire top case, and save you a lot of money.
Apple also uses different keyboards for different years of the same model machine, which can cause unnecessary delay & confusion to unprepared technicians. We stock all keyboards to machines from 2008 to the present to prevent this from occurring.
Not Feeling Very Attached?
One of the most physically used & abused parts of a laptop are its hinges; so it is common that they malfunction. Nonstop back & forth movement with half the laptop’s weight resting on this small part cause hinge issues to get worse as time goes on, as loose screws unravel and broken pieces fracture. We can fix most laptop hinge issues at our store.
Let Us Find Out The Cause Of Your Problems
Oftentimes it looks like a hinge issue when it is something else entirely. For example, with cheaper HP & Toshiba laptops, the back cover for the screen that the hinge screws into can be broken. The hinge may be fine, but the part that the hinge screws into is broken. These parts are being made of cheaper and poorer quality plastic as manufacturers race to the bottom to produce cheap laptops. With Apple machines, it is common that the back cover that the hinge screws into comes apart entirely. This piece is glued together on Apple laptops, and to add insult to injury, the exhaust fans blow the hot air out directly onto the glue!

Out Of Power?

Does Your Mouse Cursor Have A Mind Of Its Own?
You try to click and it doesn’t register a click. Maybe the cursor doesn’t move the way you want it to. This is a very common problem as the trackpad on your laptop sees more wear & tear than most other parts of your laptop. It is also at the front of the machine, so it is usually the first casualty of a liquid spill. A spilled drink goes right into the trackpad. Most trackpad malfunctions are from high humidity or liquid damage.

If you’re worried that your laptop is running hotter than it should, bring it into our shop for a free evaluation and diagnosis. Each laptop runs normally at a slightly different temperature, and the types of activities you perform can also have a big impact on how hot your laptop should be. This can make it difficult for many people to know whether or not they actually have a problem. The fact is, however, that an overheating laptop will not only be uncomfortable to touch, but it will also cause additional problems the longer you let it go.
Our experienced technicians can quickly identify why your system is overheating, and let you know exactly how much it will cost to fix. It may be something fairly small like a clogged fan, or something bigger like a bad heat-sink, but no matter what it is, our technicians will be able to fix it up so it is running properly for you again.
We can even offer after-market fans or fan control software to help keep your laptop nice and cool. This is a great solution for power users who demand a high level of performance from their systems. We can help ensure your laptop stays within the ideal operating temperature no matter what programs you’re running.
