Motherboard Repair

Windows and Mac Repaired in Store

We fix your computer in store with our dedicated equipment and experienced technicians. 

James (pictured) has everything required at hand to assess and repair your device in store. 

Short Circuit Repair

This may involve cleaning your comptuer with a special chemical, and replacing or resolding components difficult to see with the naked eye.

Here you can see 3 tiny resistors which need replacing.


Component Level Repair

Component level repair is where we replace individual components on your motherboard and repair the tiny pathways which connect them!

This is very time consuming and difficult process, but if successful the computer should function as if nothing happened. 

Not Booting Laptops

Sometimes a surge or short circuit will result in a computer that doesn’t boot. 

As part of our rapid assessment we can tell what’s going on EVEN if there’s nothing on the screen.

Power Surge

A power surge can also cause your computer to stop working. The surge can damage the internal components and result in a computer that doesn’t turn on. 

Water Damage Repair

Water can ruin your laptop by changing where the electricity is going.

When the electricity cannot complete its normal path, the laptop is said to be “short circuited”

Removing water damage, and restoring the circuit can fix this issue!

Great assistance. I spoke with Gary on the phone, describing how my pc had no video output. I'd already swapped out monitors, cables and vid cards... still nothing. Gary advised me to try something. He suggested I remove and re-seat my RAM and, after following his clear and simple instructions on what to do, my pc was back. I'd fixed it myself, thanks to Gary, who sure knows his stuff. Well done and thankyou Vivid Computers.

Highly recommend Vivid Computers. Friendly, efficient service. Dropped off my laptop, received diagnosis and quote for repair that day. Would have been able to pick it up the following afternoon but for COVID hiccup which forced them to close temporarily. Very happy with their work. They will be my go to from now on for any issues I have.

Motherboard Repair Process

Rapid Assessment

Do you need motherboard repair? Sometimes you just have a bad screen or a bad battery. We'll check under the hood and let you know!

Quote Approved by you

Once we've done our assessment we're able to give you a quote and an ETA. This can be a bit tricky with board repairs because it's a combination of skill and luck!

Repairs Attempted

We'll start on the repair ASAP but some parts and other components may need to be ordered in. We'll keep you updated whenever something exciting happens.

Happy Laptop

If all goes well you'll be able to collect your laptop good as new. In some cases we're only able to fix the computer enough to recover the data, but we'll keep you informed and up to date either way.
