Basic Laptops Repair Tips
Computer repair is a lucrative business, with many opportunities in the field. You will need to purchase some basic tools and components to get started. Here are what you should have when repairing basic laptops
1. LAPTOP CASE REMOVAL TOOL
You can purchase a laptop case removal tool from electronic stores or online shops. It costs around $5 – $10, depending upon where you are buying it from. These tools make your job easier by removing laptop cases without damaging them. These little thingies come in handy for simple stuff like replacing batteries, clearing jams, and upgrading the memory.
2. READING LAPTOP USER GUIDE & INSTALLATION MANUAL
Always read the user manual that comes with your computer before fixing things. This will help you understand the components and parts of your laptop and its purpose.
3. FROSTY CUBE
An old laptop computer’s CPU gets extremely hot due to a lack of cooling. One major cause of this is a fan that isn’t working properly or is clogged with dirt and dust accumulated over time. In such cases, take out the CPU from its socket and apply a ‘frosty cube’ on it using a cotton swab or an earbud (to remove any excess moisture). Once the frost evaporates, place the CPU back into its socket and start up your system again. The heat should be gone.
4. PREMIUM COOLING PASTE
Before starting up your laptop, you always use a premium cooling paste, such as Arctic Silver, on your CPU and GPU. If you haven’t applied the paste properly, it can cause heart problems and lead to malfunctions in the system. This will also help prevent future overheating issues.
5. SMALL PRINT SCANNER
Purchase a small print scanner to scan any document from your computer and email it to people easily. This not only saves time but is also convenient. You could keep one at home and the office for emergency purposes. If required, fax statements or proof of documents, etc. When necessary, purchase reliable third-party software to maintain your computer.
In conclusion, these are the basic things that you should have to get started with computer repairs.
