5 Common Reasons for Laptop Repair
The top five, and most serious, issues are; hard drive failure (gulp), motherboard failure (ouch) software corruption (nasty), dropped laptop (doh) and virus infection (cruel). The most common failure (that could help any of these scenarios seem less brutal) is the lack of data backup. Believe me, when your laptop dies and you imagine the worst, such as complete data loss, it hits you hard. On the other hand, if you’ve backed up regularly you have every right to be a little smug. These are mere hardware issues now and not life-threatening after all.
