Post by Excusemyfrench »

Hi,

Can anyone recommend a place where I can take my laptop to get it fixed?

Thanks

Arbico Computers at 96A Sydenham Road, close to Lidl, have a good reputation for laptop repairs.

Regards

Three recommendations in case useful:

1. www.steveshaw.com/ - Steve is who I usually ask for advice and I highly recommend

2. David : 07932 631 346 (based at the back of Twice Sweet Newsagents - 52 Sydenham Road, London SE26 5QF. Very quick and cheap. Good with less complex IT problems)

3. If all else fails try: http://www.geeksquad.co.uk/

Hi

I spoke with Steve Shaw this morning but unfortunately he has moved out of Sydenham
He is putting me in touch with Geoff - will share details once I have them and have experience of his service.

So far, so good.
£60 + Vat + cost of keyboard (£38+Vat). Can usually fit / repair on day of delivery of parts.

Laptop picked up. All fixed - cannot tell you how good it is to be able to type an "a" key
Very swift and friendly service.
Only a short walk (5 mins / easy navigation) from Honor Oak Park - keep it local! :-)
