Gaming PC Blank Screen Fans Are Spinning

It used to be when Gaming PCs would stop working it was almost always a motherboard issue. Something would burn out on the motherboard and the Gaming PC would sort of turn on, but display nothing on a screen. Back in the day, you were almost always certain it was a graphics chip or something else wrong with the motherboard.

However today times are different and gaming pc repair is more tricky. Ever since the CPUs were produced with graphics capability in them, they became more complex. So nowadays when a gaming PC or a PC Desktop with a CPU with graphics in it fails, you are not so sure what is going on. And judging from the gaming pcs that came in the past two years, there were more and more cases where a failed CPU was a culprit. With the motherboard being intact.

The challenge always is to find out which one of the components is faulty. Is it a motherboard or is it a CPU? There is really no other way of finding out, other than putting a CPU into another (working) motherboard. Or put another CPU into the current motherboard and see which one works.

This last Gaming PC that came in, had a faulty CPU also. How did we find out? Since we didn’t have the same type of motherboard or CPU in stock, we had to order one of the two. Unfortunately, we ordered the wrong one. We decided to buy a new motherboard, but after it arrived and the old CPU was installed, the gaming pc was acting exactly the same as with the original motherboard. Which tells us that the CPU was faulty.

So now we will get a new CPU and remember the new rule of thumb (sort of)! Next time we will try to ERR on the side of the CPU being faulty rather than the motherboard, cause it really seems to be happening more often this way. And seems like Intel CPUs are also failing a little more often than AMD.

The Geek Squad Scam

Geek Squad Scam is a quite popular search term on Google. So here is my story.

We had a customer walk in YESTERDAY. Who brought HP laptop that was dropped accidentally. After fall, the laptop stopped turning on. Screen was black. Fans were not spinning and computer seemed to be completely dead.

So she decided to take it to Geek Squad, because she thought it was a great idea. She has heard great things about it, saw commercials about how they run around in their vans helping people repair computers and home appliances.

Long story short, she took the computer for a repair to best buy. Geek squad said they need to send it out to Kentucky in order for it to be repaired.

They sent it out. Two weeks have passed. Damaged HP laptop was sent back and the lady was told it can not be fixed. Because the motherboard was damaged and basically there is nothing they could do about it.

The Repair

So that is when she decide to come to Fastest Mac Repair and Pc Repair!

After literally first 5 seconds looking at the power button, we realized that when hp laptop fell, it landed on the corner where the power button was. The impact caused the button to get stuck inside, which caused laptop not to turn on, because the power button was always pressed in.

I mean, you don’t have to be a genius to figure these kind of things out. all you have to do is spend 10 seconds and put some effort to try to figure out what where the issue lies. And that is what people at geek squad are not capable of doing. And perhaps that is why people think Geek Squad is a Scam!

what do you think??

if your pc computer or laptop needs repair, come to us. you won’t be disappointed. or maybe you will, who knows, nobody is perfect!

pc Computer running slow? its your own fault!

is your pc computer running slow? that is not so uncommon nowadays. and most of the time there is one reason for it. i have been seeing same thing over and over again on many computers. many computer techs dont even know what that is and their solution to the problem is to re-install windows 10. however that is (almost never) necessary!

the reason computers run slow today(with all those super processors and maximum memory that you got!) is because of ADWARE. adware is what is referred to PUP’s or potentially unwanted software! those are the programs that are not malicious. that means they don’t do any harm to your computer or your software, however they are like trash laying around your house. you can step over it and let it lay there, but at the end of the day your living room is full of trash and it lays there and makes things unpleasant.

adware also maybe tracks your online behavior, but in most cases it just pops up and offers you to buy something or it pretends it scans your computer for errors and usually finds errors and encourages you to buy full version or program so it can fix those imaginary errors!

so how does it get on your computer everyone is asking me and how to protect yourself from it? so your “pc computer running slow” thing doesnt happen.

the answer is simple. YOU – yes you! a user. have to stop putting it on your computer. like i said above. adware is not a virus. it doesnt install itself onto your computer. it is usually the people who install it themselves and then wonder why things are slow! so yes you are your biggest enemy!

so what to do?! well first if you already have adware you have to get rid of it! you can use malwarebytes program its free. but it doesnt always clean everything out. some things have to be removed manually too! so best thing is to call fastest mac repair and pc repair newbury park and we will do it for you! call 805-585-5535

in terms of prevention. most adware comes when you install new programs. here is an image of when i was installing file zilla. during installation there were two windows where i had to uncheck the box asking me if i want to install additional software.

pc computer running slow

it literally asks you if you want to install it! and you have to  say NO!

but what do most people do? they just click click click next and they dont read anything! then you have a computer full of who knows what! 🙂

Dell XPS 13 battery Replacement

dell xps 13 battery

dell xps 13 battery

Dell XPS 13 battery Replacement. and just like apple batteries some pc batteries also fail in similar fashion. but expanding or blowing up. this dell xps 13 battery has swallen on one side and was pushing the trackpad and made some keys not to press down. it had to be replaced immediately! i dont know if they do ever blow up from swalling up or not. i havent seen or heard it happen, but in theory its possible. because it happens due to gas build up inside since battery is made out of lithium. it happens due to many reasons one of them being the battery was faulty from beginning!

either way we had to order the dell xps 13 battery and 3 days later it was installed in 5 minutes!

Meet The Owner
Hello my name is Eddie.

I opened my first computer store, after i looked around to notice that people didn't have a proper place to repair their computers at.

Most mac repair places take days to repair. Not because it takes so long to repair them. but because most shops are incompetent or have bad work flow. Hence they fall behind and as result customers have to wait for repair to be completed much longer.

It is similar (if not worse)with companies like Geek Squad(Best Buy), Genius Bar (Apple), Asurion(UbreakiFixit). They hardly do any inhouse repairs. Most of their computers get shipped out to manufacturers or other repair centers.

So again, people like yourself, have to wait 2-4 weeks get their computer back.
For that reason i was on a mission to change this industry and get computers fixed as fast as I can. So you and your family can get back to their zoom meetings as quickly as possible!
Another reason you should come here is because I fix most of the people's computer in the area anyway. Most just collect them and send them to me or I usually have to take care of their customers because the "other computer geniuses" break something and computer still ends up in our repair shop after that. I'm not saying that I'm perfect. I also make mistakes sometimes or sometimes get overwhelmed and forget something. But that doesn't happen very often. and if it does. It happens because of my own error or accident, not because I'm incompetent nor do i need to hide it by telling you to just go buy anohter computer cause this one is not fixable. Like other people do. I write this, because i really take it personally. And i don't understand why people have to lie instead of telling the person they don't know how to fix it. and just tell them to go look for some other options. I take this service seriously. I love doing it and i love providing nothing less than a truly NO-BS-Excellent service to people who come visit me! hope you will be one of them! Oh yes, and also in my free time i get out of town and shoot landscape photography! feel free to stop by our shop to see my artwork!
