To Repair or Replace-
Ask yourself these three questions:
How old is my computer?
What do I use it for?
What is it worth?
Computers are ones of the most frequently used devices in our homes and offices today. There isn’t a day that goes by where most of us don’t use one. So what happens when your computer breaks down or crashes? The first thing that crosses our minds is how much is this going to cost me to fix…and if I can’t fix it how much is a new one going to cost? Or, is it going to be more expensive to fix than to just simply replace it? Due to all of the competition amongst brands these days, computers are fairly inexpensive, but then we have to think about all of the data that is on our computers. Transferring data from one computer to another is not only timely but can be costly as well.
So the first thing we need to know before we start to make this decision, what’s wrong with my computer? Why did it break down or crash? As stated in my previous blog, the most common reasons for a computer crash are, “Bad Drivers”, “Bad Power Supply”, “Corrupt Files (viruses)” and “Overheating”.
Every case of “should I replace it or repair it?” is very different and there really isn’t a straight-forward, simple answer. If the cost of repair is going to be more than what a new one would cost then it’s better to replace it, but always keep in the back of your mind, what I said earlier, the data that we keep in our computers can sometimes be irreplaceable. The best thing that you can do is always keep a backup of your files. Should you need to transfer your data from an old computer to a new one, Geek ABC will be there to help.
