People usually consider laptops as almost identical to desktop computers. While they are almost identical when it comes to functionality, their internal components are drastically different. Desktop computers in general are more component-based.
It’s the same principle that most laptops use, but desktop PC’s actually have more “partitioned” hardware, simply said. If a basic component of a desktop PC breaks down, it can usually be replaced. For example, if the graphics card of a desktop PC dies for some reason, replacing that component is actually very simple. All it takes is removing the side cover, a safety screw, physically removing the graphics card and installing the replacement. All you need is a single screwdriver for that, at least when it comes to desktop PC’s. Laptops can be complicated when it comes to that. Graphics card are usually an integral part of laptop internal hardware and can’t be removed so simply. In certain cases, the entire motherboard has to be replaced just because the graphics card broke down. Many laptop brands like HP also have pretty unique mechanisms for disassembly, so you need to use the services of an authorized repair service for something like that. Fortunately, it’s pretty simple to find them. A simple Google search – HP laptop repair Toronto – is enough to find the results you need.
The procedure is pretty much the same as with any laptop repair service. You can send the laptop by delivery service (and have it returned in the same way) or you can deliver and pick it up personally.
