From broken screens to corrupt files and everything in between, we’ve seen it all before here in the Acrylic PC Repairs office. Often, we see the same problems coming in to us to be fixed, caused by simple mistakes that could have easily been avoided. That’s why we’ve put together a list of computer mistakes we have seen over the years.
An overheating computer is never a good sign, and it can cause a series of issues that can leave your beloved device broken. Even though you can run a clogged-up machine for months with seemingly no issues, sooner or later the amount of muck will take over and leave you wondering where you went wrong. This particular gaming computer swiftly died from overheating and had the owner needing an urgent fix. Luckily, one of our tech geeks managed to sort this relatively quickly. Within 2 hours, after a thorough clean inside and out, it was purring like a kitten again just like new.
It’s so easily done… you put your laptop on the floor for a second, forget it’s there, and step on it… one of the kids decides it’s a stupendously good idea to play Jenga with everything in the living room and suddenly, crash… I think the weirdest one we’ve had so far was someone’s cat knocking a vase off the windowsill straight onto a MacBook and smashing it. However it happens, the first question on your mind (after you’ve wondered about the legality of corporal punishment) is going to be, can laptop screens even be repaired?
