It’s not wrong to say that at this point in the 21st century, we all spend a very large amount of our daily lives on some type of device or another.

For some it’s the phone, for others it’s the tablet, but for an even larger number of people, it is the laptop. From schoolwork to office work to general entertainment time, your laptop has probably become a central possession in your life, which makes it even more disruptive when something goes wrong!

Here at Red Centre Technology Partners, we deal with hundreds of different issues, undertaking laptop repairs in Alice Springs every week, and with so much to get through, certain patterns start to emerge about what is usually the problem.

Here are five of the most common laptop repair issues that we come across.

  • Overheating

An overheating laptop is one of the most common issues that people have. This is generally to do with a problem with the internal fan not working as it should, and it is usually relatively simple to fix.

  • Running Slowly

A laptop that is starting to run incredibly slowly could have issues related to how much space is left on the hard drive, as well as suffering from a malware virus that is infecting the systems and preventing them from working as it should be.

  • Battery Life

A laptop’s battery starting to fail and run out quickly is a classic sign of old age in the machine. Besides ordering and installing a replacement, there isn’t usually much that can be done for an aged battery.

  • No Internet

A laptop not being able to connect to Wi-Fi can either be an equipment failure within the machine or sometimes even a failure with your own internet that you haven’t realised before. It is always worth rebooting your router to see if it makes a difference.

  • Black Screen

Known by many as the screen of death! The first thing to do is unplug and completely reboot the laptop, but it gives you no joy then it could be a sign of total computer system failure.
