Computer Power Issues

Computer won’t start? Weird smell or smoke coming from your computer? iFIX New York® can help.

iFIX New York can expertly diagnose computer power supply issues

The power supply converts the alternating current found in our homes into low voltage direct current to power the guts of our computers. Computer components are intolerant of voltage changes and even slight variations can permanently damage your computer.

Like hard drives, all computer power supplies will fail.

It’s not IF, but WHEN. And a failing computer power supply can badly damage expensive computer motherboard or delicate parts, destroy your hard drives (and your data) or even cause a fire. A failing power supply should be replaced immediately.

Symptoms of a bad computer power supply

  • Computer turns on but shuts off randomly.
  • Computer won’t power up.
  • Noise from the back of the computer.
  • Computer spontaneously reboots.
  • Mild (or major) electric shock when you touch the case.
  • Memory errors.
  • Blue screen of death.
  • Fans stop working.
  • Your home circuit breakers open when you power on your computer.
  • Bad smell coming from your computer.
  • Smoke.
  • Fire.

What should I do if my computer power supply is failing?

To prevent damage to your computer (or worse) immediately turn your computer off.

Bring your computer to iFIX New York. Most computer power supplies can be replaced in 30 minutes or less.

Why repair instead of replace?

The U.S trashes 300 to 400 million electronic items annually. Only 2% of computers will be used by a second owner. And these problems are much greater in New York City where the cost to remove trash is well over $2 billion annually. Yes, that's Billions with a B.

But there's a bigger issue.

The impact to our environment is irreparable. Sure, we can recycle electronics (though less than 20% are each year), but the environmental impact of continuously mining and refining the materials that go into our devices is devastating. And New York City's trash is carted hundreds of miles for disposal so the impact of trashing your phone is even greater!

Repair your phones and gadgets: your children and grandchildren will thank you.
