Laptop repairs: recommendations needed
#1
Hi,

Got a poorly sick HP laptop. I'm pretty sure it's the network adapter that has stopped working.

Can anyone reccomend a reliable repair shop?

I'm based in Cotillo but assume I will need to travel. 

Help please, as I'm pretty desperate  Cry

How old is it? You might want to consider just replacing it. Between the cost of parts and labour you might not save much fixing an older laptop.

But try here first

A few repair shops, mentioned earlier:

  1. Clinica Electronica - Puerto del Rosario
  2. Tecnifuert - Puerto del Rosario
  3. Falcon y Calvo - Puerto del Rosario
  4. Fuertemovil - Puerto del Rosario
  5. Repair Centre Fuerteventura will visit - Corralejo based


If it's just a network adapter, you can get one that's USB based. It'll be cheaper than replacing the whole motherboard. Look for USB WiFi or Ethernet to USB adapter. Should cost about a tenner.

EDIT: Found some a bit closer (for quicker delivery). Thanks to McAdam for introducing the shop here.

Thanks to all. I've decided to order the gizmo recommended by Sam and the supplier recommended by McAdam.  It's only €16, so worth a try.

Really appreciate all the help.  Thanks all.

What actually seems to be the problem with it?
It could be a build up of dust, an internal cable that got knocked loose or a software issue.
If you want - drop by me in Corralejo and I'll give it a quick look.
