Laptop Repairs Edinburgh

Repairs to an HP laptop at our Edinburgh workshop.  The customer had been having problems getting the this HP laptop to boot to the desktop.  Whenever he switched the laptop on it would have power but just display a blank screen.  Over a number of weeks he worked out a fix.  If the laptop was switched on for an hour before use he could restart it.  It would then be fine for hours on end

This seemed a little odd to us.   But as the customer wasn’t in a hurry and was on the verge of just replacing the Hp Model 15.  We decided to spend some time and see if we could get to the bottom of the problem.  15 years experience tells us HP laptops have a reputation for running hot and causing strange problems like this.

After spending a few days monitoring this Hp Model 15 laptop we came to the conclusion the memory sockets had a fault.  We tested the laptop with 3 or 4 brands of memory and still had the same problem.   On opening the laptop we stripped and cleaned the CPU.  Cleaned the CPU fan, the ram sockets with contact cleaner.  Over the next few days we would test the laptop each morning from cold to make sure it was working from a cold start every morning with success.

This took a lot of time but was very satisfying to get to the bottom of the problem and be able to call the customer and say it was all fixed.

This is the before and after, the first picture is the laptop not posting at all, the second is after the HP laptop had been stripped and the ram sockets repaired.
