Laptop Repairs - good honest advice is such a rare commodity,
Big retailers: Thousands of computers are being cast
off because of inaccurate advice from salesman-come-technicians. Some shops are
more biased towards selling a new laptop rather than repairing
yours - guess that is why they are called retailers.
People are being badly advised to waste thousands
on new computers even where a simple 59 pound power DC
jack replacement is needed. For
the salesman it’s just another sale, but you will have to waste hours, even days,
to get your software/settings working as before. Manufacturers are also guilty of pushing up sales by making some simple repairs impossible without
the correct parts. They have control over spare parts availability and can be very
greedy, with some trying to charge hundreds of pounds for simple
repairs. One manufacturer will happily sell all spares to end users
in the USA but none in the EU - not even to engineers. Shops will always try to sell you a replacement

Professional Park Royal Laptop Repairs: There are many problems
which can stop a laptop working. One of the most serious problems is a faulty
motherboard. 90% of the logic is situated on the
motherboard, also called the system board. Most motherboard power problems
can be reliably resolved.
Park Royal Faulty DC Power Socket:
The laptop fails to charge the battery or keeps switching between battery
and mains power.
You may also get a smoke from near the connector. A lot of users instinctively go out
and buy an adapter -Stop! - get your laptop/adapter checked
at our repair centre for free. We stock adapters that are designed to work with your
laptop. If your laptop works with our adapter then you can purchase it for 29 pounds
- far cheaper and more reliable than the ‘Universal’ adapters sold by most
Park Royal Motherboard Short:
This problem can be caused by burnt out diodes
on the motherboard. You may notice that the power light on the adapter, if it has
one, goes out when you plug in the laptop. Our engineers can easily locate the
short circuit and fix it. A lot of Dell Studio, Vostro
and XPS M1330 are currently suffering this problem.
Park Royal Damaged Video Graphics:
Modern users demand high performance
graphics from super slim & light weight laptops and notebooks. Unfortunately, these
systems can overheat and damage the connections under the GPU. (66519.).
Symptoms may include:
strange screen image
horizontal lines on the screen
powers up but no image
one long and two short beeps when switched on
Windows system boot to safe mode only
Windows crashes in high resolution mode
high resolution modes disabled
computer switches off after starting
no image on screen
some laptops don’t even switch on
Over heating may occur if the laptop is placed on a soft surfaces like a sofa, mattress,
carpet or bed. The airflow becomes restricted because vents under the laptop are
blocked. Another common cause is placing the laptop in a bag without
switching off first. A faulty fan can also kill the motherboard.
Our engineers can repair this fault in most cases. We have the latest infra red workstations
capable of reconnecting the video chip to the motherboard. The process is complex
and requires thorough testing.
Park Royal Motherboard Memory Slots fault:
This issue normally occurs when the contacts between the memory slot and
the motherboard degrade to a point where the memory controller cannot reliably read
from or write to memory. Some laptops report that the amount of memory in the system
has changed. Others blissfully continue using the bad slot and eventually crash. Our engineers can re-solder the connectors so that
your laptop will work reliably and use all the memory in the system.
Park Royal Damaged USB, Networking & HDMI ports:
These faults usually require a replacement of the connector. Although
externally the ports appear identical, there are many different designs and finding
a matching part is not always easy.
