At our shop, we receive many HP/Compaq laptop computer repair requests. Common repairs to HP computers include:
- Failure due to overheated GPU chips (graphics chips). Dust, hair and fiber often gets pulled into the fan and accumulates on the surface of the heat sink, reducing airflow through the cooling fins and causing the graphics chip to overheat. HP laptops made from 2008-2014 seem to have a particularly high incidence of this failure. These models in particular are old enough now where the cost of repair far outweighs the value and usefulness of the computer in working order; but newer models can still be saved!
- Broken LCD display screen. Some models, such as the DV5 and DM4 use non-standard 14.5″ wide LCD screens. These in particular may be the most expensive to repair, but most of the more common HP/Compaq screen repairs will cost less than $200 in total.
- Failed display hinges or hinge mounts. If your screen is hanging on by cables and wires, don’t fret. We can determine the required parts to get your HP/Compaq laptop computer back in one solid, dependable assembly.
- Failing or crashed hard drive. If you’re experiencing blue screens of death (BSOD), cyclical restarting of the laptop computer without successfully getting into Windows, or simply the dreaded “No OS found” message, we can help. Replacement hard drives start around $50 for brand new and a new operating system installation along with installing the new hard drive runs about $65. If we can still access your old data, pictures and music, we can transfer it to the new hard drive for about $25 extra.
*Please note: We no longer repair LCD screens in HP Folio models due to parts supply issues and the extreme fragility of the computer. We are working to find other solutions for your needs for this product.
