Back Up!

Quite often we are asked to back up a customer’s data. We can either burn the data to dvd’s, copy it to

the laptop’s hard drive (after reinstalling the operating system) or copy it to an external hard drive, or flash drive. We can not back up programs such as Word, or Office, but we can back up the documents created. If requested we will copy data back into folders like my music, my pictures, or my documents. If a customer needs data imported into prgrams like Outlook, or Quickbooks please let us know, and we can do this for an affordable price. We will need the installation cd’s, install codes, and all necessary passwords so we can install the programs, before we import data into programs like Outlook and Quickbooks.

Many customers would like their laptop to be “like it was” and this takes some time. We will do all we can to be sure your laptop is ready for use when you pick it up, but our customers need to let us know exactly what they require so we can assist them. We can back up our customer’s data, and then help them move it so it can be easily accessed.

If you would like more information about backing up data, please visit Seattle Laptop’s Data Backup page. There you will find helpful instructions on backing up data a few different ways.

FAQ

seattle_laptop_8

Hi, I see that you are able to fix keyboards for laptops. I have a Dell Inspiron 1420 that has had 2 keys pop off. The plastic connector piece on one seems fine but the other is broken, the key itself is fine for both. Can you give an estimate as to the cost for repair and the time frame? I am also fine with having you use the plastic connector from a key I never use to replace the broken one.

Thanks for contacting us *****. We repair broken keys on keyboards all the time, and we almost always have the plastic parts in stock. We charge a flat fee of $30 or less for replacing, or repairing keys, and we do the repair while you wait. Please do not try to put the keys on yourself, because you may damage the metal part of keyboard.

Why should I let Seattle Laptop try to repair my laptop? Other stores also claim to do laptop repairs.

Seattle Laptop has been buying, selling, and repairing laptops since early 1996. It is unlikely that any company in Seattle, or possibly the United States has repaired as many laptop system boards as Seattle Laptop, or even attempted the types of board level repairs we specalize in. We carry in stock a huge inventory of laptop repair parts, screens, keyboards, memory, hard drives etc. We are also able to find parts for, and repair less common brands of laptops. Our repair policies are straight forward, and a customer does not have to leave a deposit when they leave their laptop with us for service! We have many times repaired laptops that other stores have damaged while working on them, or told our customers that their laptops were not repairable. Just because some other business, or factory service outlet can not fix your laptop does not mean our pros can’t! We have an enormous quantity of replacement parts, power boards, video cables, screens, etc in stock. Having the parts here to be used in testing makes it a lot easier to quickly and accurately diagnose what would be simple problems for us, but not for other companies. Seattle Laptop also takes pride in our record of success over the years. We have many happy, satisfied customers, and hope to have many more….

The letter “G” on my IBM T40 has a small piece broke off and won’t stay on. It’s the white plastic under the key. How much would it cost for a replacement?
Thanks!

In many cases we can use parts from a bad keyboard to fix yours. It depends on whether we have a bad keyboard in stock that is the same as your model. The odds that we have a parts keyboard for a T Series laptop are pretty good. The normal charge for fixing a broken key on a laptop’s keyboard is $30, or less.

Backing Up Your Laptop’s Data

A Short Article on Backing Up Data : Remember to Click on the Mozy Button on the Left to Learn About Free Online Data Backups With Mozy.com. 

There are many different ways to back up the data on computers, and laptops. How we do it here at Seattle Laptop is very simple. The administrator makes a folder on a drive on our secure network, and then names the folder the date, and the computer being backed up. For example 121206quickbooks would be the name of the folder we back up our quickbooks data to. (when I back up our quickbooks accounting software, I usually back it up to two different drives on two computers other than our server just in case) We then copy the data needing backed up into this folder, whether it is our company documents, templates, database, or quickbooks file. This method of backing up is very easy, since we have a secure network, and it is easy to delete the old backups when they have been replaced with more recent ones, saving hard drive space.

The secret is to put all the data that needs constant backups in one folder. I suggest using the My Documents folder for everything. You can just copy the whole folder to an external hard drive, a hard drive on your network, or burn it to a DVD or CD. It does not take long once you get used to doing it. Just remember burned CD’s and DVD’s have a problem going bad after being stored for a number of years, so this method is not 100% failproof. If your data is extremely important, I suggest backing it up to multiple devices, disks, and online.

When you begin to accumulate a lot of music, videos, or pictures there is an easy way to be sure it gets backed up without using huge amounts of disk space, or dozens of DVD’s.
