Does your computer get very hot or switches off randomly ?
If your computer (MacBook, iMac, other laptop or PC desktop), gets very hot, it is very noisy or keeps randomly restart, we suggest to check it for overheating problems.
It is danger to overheat your computer as it can cause some serious damage to the motherboard and it may not be repairable.
Before we confirm the problem, we will disassemble your computer. If the problem is not very obvious, we check temperature’s ranges and the quality of thermal compbound on the graphic chip, chipset and the processor.
Once we confirm the fault, we replace the thermal paste, clean the cooling system and the fan from any dust and assemble the computer back. If we find the cooling fan being faulty (if the bearing is woren, it is noisy or doesn’t work at all), we will contact you to confirm its cost. Each different model of laptop, Macbook or iMac use different parts and that has to be checked first. Usually the fan replacement costs £10-30 + £49 for the overheating repair.
After all, we check themperature’s ranges again. The after repair overheating test, should not take longer than 1 hour.
It requires skills and time to strip down your machine, so give us 24 hours to clean the whole hardware. After the service your computer will run cool and safe again.
We highly recommend you to clean the computer inside regulary every 12 moths. It will extend its life to the maximum value.
