Searching Laptop repair store

Hi guys,

 

My step daughters 6 year old Samsung Laptop crashed during the last Windows 7 update. And now it is not starting. Just the fan starts for few seconds (with monitor black) and then power off again. I've tried already to do hard resets of the BIOS but it seems that the hard drive is not starting.

 

Does anyone of you know a good laptop repair store, preferably City area or southern of Chiang Rai (coming from MaeLao) or are the shops in Central Plaza good and fair?

 

Thanks for your tips.

What is a "hard reset of the BIOS"?  Do you mean apply defaults and exit?

 

What's the full model number?

 

You can first try taking the RAM modules out and cleaning them with a rubber eraser. Try to boot with one in and and one out, including swapping them around if necessary. If still no go, change the CMOS battery.

The main Technocom shop near the big Market/Overbrook  has dealt with my PC problems in the past.

The service charge to check it last week was 300B.

Thanks for your tips. I've tried today morning to start the laptop and surprise it was starting and proceed with the updates.
Don't know why...
