Replacing Damaged  Laptop or Notebook Hardware

Laptops and Notebooks by their very nature are susceptible to being dropped or stood on or having liquids spilt over them. This often requires replacement of the damaged items such as a Broken or Cracked Laptop Screen or a Laptop keyboard replacement. Our technicians are skilled in all such repairs but will not be able to complete the repair until a replacement part has been sourced or priced. Parts are not readily available in Perth, so most parts will have to be sourced from the Eastern States or from Overseas, requiring between 3 to 21 days for delivery of the part.

Many can be fixed yourself, here are some self-help guides to common problems in Hints and Tips section.
