Raleigh Laptop Virus Repair
Your laptop virus will dig into your computer operating system the same way it would on your desktop computer. Computer operating systems are the same on both desktops and laptops. And when they get a virus, we tackle them the same way. We can remove laptop computer viruses wherever they’re lurking, just like we do with a desktop computer.
Upgrade Your Laptop Operating System
One thing to keep in mind is that laptops are a lot less friendly for computer upgrades than their desktop counterparts. Graphics cards – a FAVORITE computer upgrade for gamers – are part of the motherboard (the guts of your computer) and can’t be upgraded. Some models can have replacement video cards added or replaced. It really is dependent on the make and model of your laptop. Same thing holds true for processors – some can be upgraded and some can’t. The one thing that usually CAN be upgraded is the laptop memory. Nothing will improve the performance of a laptop more than a good RAM memory upgrade. Additionally, hard drives can be replaced and upgraded without much issue!
Laptops are Inherently Different Than Desktops
Working on a laptop or notebook computer is a bit different than working on a desktop computer. Things have to be a lot more compact than on a desktop machine. Laptop parts that are a lot smaller and have a lot more screws holding things together. It’s not uncommon to find a couple dozen tiny screws (of different lengths) in front of a computer technician before they’ve even finished getting to the problem.
Each computer has to fit together perfectly, parts usually need to be ordered specifically FOR your laptop. Normally our computer repair services can be accomplished with standard off the shelf parts or easily acquired parts. Unfortunately, laptop parts are usually specific to your manufacturer AND model. There can even be variations on the same laptop model. We do keep a few universal parts like hard drives in stock, but because there are so many manufacturers and models, it’s not uncommon that Buckeye Computer Service will need to order a part.
