Notebook Repairs

Z-Ware Systems is fully qualified to repair and upgrade most major brands of notebook computers, both PC and Macintosh systems. This includes Dell, Acer, HP-Compaq, and Toshiba. We can also still get parts for most brands that are no longer in production. In addition, we will take the effort necessary to locate repair and upgrade parts for many lesser known systems as well. If your notebook needs a keyboard, hard drive, or even a mainboard or display, we can help. We also work on Macintosh laptops, from the original 100 series, up to the most recent MacBook and MacBook Air models. We have sources for parts for these and many other systems.

We can get displays for almost any notebook made, because we generally don't buy from the notebook manufacturer, but instead from the display manufacturer, saving a considerable expense. In addition, we may not have to replace the entire upper part of the machine, as many shops do, but replace only what is needed. Sometimes, a dark panel is caused by a backlight or inverter failure, which is much less expensive to repair than replacing the entire LCD panel.

We also can get used notebooks, typically from one of the leasing companies that we have a relationship with. These are usually a year or two old, have seen service in a corporate environment, and are cleaned and refurbished before being offered for sale to our customers.

We do NOT sell Notebook parts, other than main batteries, PC cards, and modules that are generally intended by the manufacturer to be user-installable, unless we install them. The reason for this is twofold: First, we cannot guarantee any part that we do not install. Second, often we are approached for parts because someone has misdiagnosed a machine only to find that the problem was not where they thought it was, and the part replaced was not the problem at all. Since we often have to special order parts, we cannot take back something that we have sold unless it is truly defective. While PC's are generally modular, and designed to have the parts replaced by the end user, notebooks generally should be serviced by an experienced shop. Therefore, if you are interested in purchasing parts that you would like to install yourself, you might be better off going directly to the manufacturer of your notebook (who may not sell you the parts either for the same reason!)

Our service prices vary by the type of service you need, so we don't post them. You can either E-MAIL us or telephone us at (609) 585-8415 for price quotations on repairs and upgrades. If you E-Mail, please include the BRAND and MODEL NUMBER of the machine, the type of service required, and both a TELEPHONE NUMBER and an E-MAIL ADDRESS where we can reach you for further information should we need it. Please keep in mind that many repair quotations cannot be made via telephone or E-Mail, as we need to see the equipment in order to make an accurate diagnosis of any problems you may be having. Upgrade quotations are based on upgrading a properly working machine. Because many Notebook repair parts are sold on an exchange basis, if the notebook you want to upgrade is not working properly, there will be an additional charge for getting it into working order before upgrading it.
