NoteFix: Many Laptop Repairs Actually Software Configuration Problems


Web-based computer repair service provides information on avoiding most common notebook problems.

Bedford, MA, February 1, 2005 -- NoteFix (, a division of Pre-Owned Electronics and a national leader in laptop repair, reports that 1 of 5 reported notebook computer problems is related to software configuration. This report is based on analysis of over 20,000 laptops that NoteFix has repaired.

Configuration parameters are defined by users based on a number of preferences. These preferences include the laptop’s Internet connection method, printer options, schedule for software updates, as well as the definition of hardware ports to external hard drives, modems, and other devices. These settings are often set once and forgotten, only to later become corrupted files that manifest themselves as hardware problems.

These issues can often be remedied at home, alleviating the need for sending a laptop in for repair. Sometimes, however, a seasoned technician is required to differentiate a hardware problem from a software or configuration problem. For those users who need technical repairs, NoteFix offers an innovative, Internet-based high-speed laptop computer repair service. The company’s flat-rate pricing model ensures most repairs will be completed for less than $350 with a turnaround time under 48 hours.

It is also important to ensure that the configuration settings are re-set upon the receipt of a repaired laptop. In some instances the environment for repairing a laptop may be slightly different than the user’s environment, and the differences may initially seem like an incomplete repair. Resetting preferences, especially related to Internet connections, will usually resolve this.
