Great customer service and clear response on quote, worked through Covid and was still able to have repaired and ready for pick up within a couple days! I believe to have extended the life of my Mac for more than 4 years!! Thanks guys!!
James and Gary at Vivid did a great job on my 8 year old desktop, its like a new machine with the new solid state memory. I have been using Vivid for over 15 years they are friendly, communicative nerds (in the best sense) and I can recommend them. Ivan and Toni
Okay, my Apple MacBook Pro decided to die on me, mid sentence with every deadline imaginable to meet. I need an Apple tech, an increasingly rare commodity, I need my laptop fixed fast. I did one google search & within minutes found myself driving down Grange Rd, looking for Vivid computers. I was introduced to this quirky guy James, "I suppose you need your notebook back today," "er, yes please". 45 minutes later I was again driving down Grange Rd, only this time I was heading home, notebook fixed. Amazing service!!
Had issues with my MacBook. Spoke to Apple support and they said it was one thing and to take it in to get it fixed. Took it in to James at Vivid - ended up being something totally different. Fixed the issue quickly - even saved me some extra money. Great service. Highly recommend!!!

Macbook Water Damage

Water damage is our most common form of water damage repair.

It doesn’t have to be much water either! Even a single drop can cause laptop failure!

Macbook Data Recovery

With new mac’s soldering their hard drives directly onto the board it’s no longer possible to recover the data yourself.

Vivid Computers can fix you mac ‘just enough” to retrieve your data. This service can cost more than a regular board repair. 

Macbook Backlight Issues

A flashing screen or no display may be a screen issue, or it might be an issue with your display circuit.

We’ll do a free assessment and quote and let you know your options. 

Macbook Power Surge

Older macbooks can sometimes suffer from failed internal components and simply “stop working’ for no reason!

These power surges usually require us to replace chips, but once done your mac is back to 100%!

Macbook Battery Replacement

Often with water damage your mac will require a new battery. Vivid Computers can easily replace this for you while we’re repairing the board. 

Please be aware that this comes at an additional cost to the board repair. 

No Power / White Screen

If your mac is simply behaving strangely it may need a board repair, or it may need a new cable!  

Often it’s impossible to tell without opening it up.
