Is my PC worth repairing?
I get asked a lot if it's economical to repair a PC / Computer / Laptop when a component fails.
This depends on a number of factors but as a rule of thumb it depends on the age of the computer.
If it's a new computer then replacing a motherboard works out a lot cheaper than buying a new computer.
Unfortunately most peoples PC's are a number of years old and due to the advancement of technology replacing a Motherboard also means replacing the Processor and Memory, making the price nearly the same as a new PC.
If you have a problem contact me and I will visit and give you an honest answer about what direction you should take.
Laptops are another story as all the components are usually contained on the motherboard and in most cases the price difference between repair and replacement is negligible..
I can visit your home anywhere on the Costa del Sol from Malaga to Estepona.
If it-s a complex repair then I usually take the PC back to my workshop in Mijas Costa and conduct diagnostic and repair before returning the computer to your home or business.
