Laptop Repair

One of our laptops had an, erm, accident. Water was spilled on the keyboard. It refused to power up after that. We tried to dry it out for several days; still it would not work.

My friend Bappu pointed me to a repair shop in Elephant Road called Imex. It is a down-to-earth place on the second floor near "Bata Intersection." It is run by one Asif who has HP/Compaq certification for supporting PC and laptop repairs. I knew I was in good hands when I entered because Asif glanced at my (closed) laptop and guessed the right model number (1700T.)

Well, they fixed it! Luckily the motherboard was ok, but Asif had said they could even replace that if need be. Charge was Tk 1000 (for labor and some minor cleaning up and PC board re-soldering.)

Amazing.

Two year ago my Dell laptop broke. None of my computer hardware literate friends could guess what could be the prblem. Luckily I had home repair coverage. One tech came, spent 3 hours and decided that the laptop could not be fixed. Asked me to discard that. I got a new one for free.

Following month when visiting BD, someone asked me to take the broken laptop.
there was a small electric, computer, cell phone repair shop around the corner in my goli.

My newspaper hawker works there. he took it from my home and the following day I was told that the laptop is fixed. I have to pay 300 taka.

Laptop systems are at a cons when it comes to laptop replacement parts because they aren’t designed to be as robustly changeable as desktops.
