Broken screens are normally caused by a hard knock that normally results in a bright area in certain parts of the screen and a inky look elsewhere with maybe some of the picture that should be there showing. The only option in this scenario is to replace the whole panel. Each laptop requires not only the right size, but the right connection and the right type .

Power sockets are easily broken normally caused by knocking the power adaptor whilst the laptop is plugged in or using the laptop on a soft surface such as a bed.
All repairs are completed in our workshop in Maldon and are not sent elsewhere.

All computers use RAM memory (Random access memory). If your laptop or desktop is an older Model, your computer has not been maintained or you are using a heavy processing Program such as Photoshop then a RAM upgrade may be a way of breathing new life into your laptop. Adding Ram Will transform your computer.
From the moment you switch on your system the difference will be apparent from start up time to the normal day to day working, the change in performance will be instantly noticeable. Because your PC is not using your hard drive as the RAM it craves and as RAM works quicker, the whole PC will go along quicker and without the constant chatter of the hard drive.
Different types of RAM are available dependant on type, age, architecture and style of laptop or desktop PC. Memory for your PC or laptop computer starts from only £19.99 fitted.
TDR Computers can normally fit memory whilst you wait, subject to space on the bench and by prior arrangement. Most popular sizes and types of RAM from 2GB to 8GB are always in stock. Larger sizes and gaming RAM is normally available next working day.
HARD DRIVE REPLACEMENT
Traditional hard drives in your laptop or desktop PC are of mechanical design and work rather like a record player with a disk and arm. These wear out over time and are susceptible to failure but you are normally warned of this in the form of errors & a slow down in your machine.
TDR Computers can replace this drive & provided the drive has not completely failed recover all your documents and re-install onto a new drive. A 500GB drive costs £109.99. Bigger drives are available for an additional cost.
