With technology prices constantly dropping, you may find yourself tempted to upgrade that same old clunky laptop you’ve had since university or finally fix that cracked iPhone screen.

Laptop Screen Repair – $130 to $150
Much like your iPhone or Samsung Galaxy, if you drop your laptop or it slips out of your bag the screen WILL crack.

Make sure whoever you take your laptop to has a good warranty so if there is any problem when you leave, you’re covered.
Creaky or Broken Hinges – $100
Another issue you will likely experience if you drop your laptop or you’re clumsy is the hinges between your screen and the keyboard/logic board may become broken or dislodged. Many laptop manufacturers will have warranties that will not support fixing this type of issue, but luckily getting new OEM replacement hinges is an easy task for local Winnipeg laptop repair providers. Since there are so many different models of laptops out there on the market, you should definitely call to confirm they have your specific models part in stock.
