Recommend a computer repairer

Recommended Posts

I need when I am in Bangkok in a few weeks to get my laptop repaired.  

 

It has a screen fault where it turns itself off if I move the screen to much or put the power supply when the screen is at the right angle - it goes back on pressing the power supply but my heart misses a beat each time.

 

Also need a hard disk imaged and a higher capicity disk put in.

 

Now I know there are hundreds of shops and there is pantip plaza etc but this is my workhorse which I use every hour of the day.  I am self employed and need it for work.

 

So even if it costs more if you have a recommendation where they can do this with care then please let me know.

Hi,

 

Suggest you go to Fortune Town and just visit one of the smaller shops with a work area visible - 3rd floor I think (if the street level is 1). The ones I have used are pretty switched on and not too expensive.

 

But screen faults, especially if it is a replacement, are expensive so prepare yourself for the possibility of needing to buy a new machine mate.

 

I hope you are pleasantly surprised.

 

Cheers,

 

Mark

I can recommend Pro-Corner in the Fortune Town mall (Rama9 MRT), 3rd level, back aisle.

 

I've had a couple of repairs done there and they are honest, reliable and very reasonable price.

 

The manager Khun Nick speaks good English.

Thanks guys.  I am hoping the screen repair is just a loose cable as that is what the symptons suggest.  Its an IPS screen and HD so as you said hope not.   Computer cost of £1k and has served me well.  I do try and upgrade every 3 years so just coming up to that.  Its from PC Specialist.

Yes, I would agree with the other two posters, Fortune Town is the way to go and easy to get to by MRT.

 

The centre is located just far enough away from the city to avoid the tourists and the possible tourist pricing traps and is a popular with working Expats. The centre is also connected to a Office tower where alot of business's are located which use the services of the IT stores.

 

I would go with Billy recommendation, being a past customer and the fact he honest and speaks good English is a winner!

Thanks guys and Billy.  This is exactly the sort of recommendation I wanted.   I know there are hundreds of repair shops but I got to work while away and if the laptop comes back not working then I am in deep dog poo.  So I will sort it near end of my trip just in case.
