Repair Solutions That Save Money and Make Sense

macbook apartYou can count on TechRestore to have repair solutions for your Apple and PC devices, no matter the age. The big challenge for older devices and brand new ones is that the part prices are typically astronomically high! Our priority, of course, is to source parts from trusted vendors and adjust our prices down as the market levels. We’re so confident in our parts, we offer our customers lifetime guarantees on most repairs.  So you can rest assured, when we add a new service, it has met all our quality criteria and it will exceed your expectations as well. 

We are always looking for new services that are beneficial to our customers.

That is why have been busy finding the best solution for board level repairs for all devices! These repairs require a high level of skill to complete, which can make the service difficult to find. The demand for board level repair has been more pronounced recently due to the quest to achieve smaller and thinner designs. Now, the main board has become more important than ever, as it typically contains the processor, video card, RAM, hard drive, and more. With all those components now tiny and attached to a board with solder, machines have a smaller amount of replaceable components inside. Repairing the board can be much more cost effective than replacing, saving you hundreds of dollars.  You can order this service online, start with a free diagnosis, send us a message or call 502-398-6456 or stop by for more details.

Of course, laptops by nature are in harms way. We have seen cracked screens resulting from the most mundane activities, it happens. We hope that doesn’t happen to you, but if it does, TechRestore can repair your MacBook Air Retina screen starting at just $650. That includes our lightning fast turn around time, epic customer service and the longest warranty in the market.

Identifying, Preventing & Repairing Malware

mac with malware symbolMacs are not immune to viruses or malware attacks,

while they are more difficult to exploit than Windows, hackers have been increasingly using browser hijackers and click baits in an attempt to get your personal information. The targets of these attacks seem to be random, and one of the most recent was Ariana Grande fans who downloaded a pirated version of her new album  which contains malware that is stealing their online banking information.

Adware and malware can be a problem for everyone. It can be disguised as familiar “software updates” that don’t really update anything. Once you agree to download this “update” you could be downloading software that can slow your machine down, or worse, share your personal data with someone else.

To prevent these issues there are some best practices that TechRestore recommends:

  1. Ignore unfamiliar pop-ups offering updates after loading a web page, especially if they warn you that your device is “infected”
  2. Set your homepage to Google.com
  3. Use trusted software to scan for and prevent adware and malware
  4. Visit only trusted and safe websites (so if you get an email link from your bank for example, go to their website directly, don’t click the link)
  5. Remember, most malware requires some action from you, so use caution.

Even abiding by the recommendations above doesn’t guarantee you won’t contract adware and/ or malware. If you think this has happened to your Mac or PC, TechRestore is offering a special service to save you money and keep you protected. We will do a complete check, removal, and install software that will help protect your machine for 1 year, all for only $100. As always you can set your repair up online and send your machine in for quick service, or stop by our store in Louisville, KY. If you have any questions or need help setting up your repair give us a call at (502) 398-6456, or send us an email.

PSA – HP Battery Recall Round 2

No need to panic!

hp devicesThis week, HP issued a recall for some batteries in a few select models of laptops, desktops, 2-in-1s, tablets and even some mobile devices. If you have an HP computer, it may be at risk of overheating, which poses a burn or fire danger. Even if you checked your HP on the last round (January 2018), please do so again! Some of the batteries they ok’d before are now showing up as defective.

HP is working hard to make it right and, of course, they are replacing the batteries at no cost. Unfortunately, you will not be able to perform this on your own, as most of the affected batteries are internal to the system and require a trained tech.

So, just find out if you’re affected and get it started! Go to HP’s recall site and download the “Battery Validation Utility” and follow the instructions from there.

We wish we could help with this service, but at least we can make sure all our friends and customers know! Please share this with everyone (even if you don’t think they have an HP, they may know someone who does.

If you’d like to steer anyone toward a reliable Apple device *wink, wink* we know a place with fantastic prices and friendly, knowledgable Apple and PC experts.

As always, TechRestore is delivering experience beyond expectation.
