Computer Repairs Brisbane
Are you looking for a computer repair in Brisbane? Norm's Computer Services offers you computer repair and troubleshooting services, and lots more, for all sorts of computers and other electronic devices.
Whatever problems you're having with your computer, Norm's Computer Services is on hand to help you out. You won't even need to leave the comfort of your own home, office or workplace as I come to you, covering a wide range of Brisbane suburbs.
Desktop PC & Laptop Repairs Brisbane
Whatever's gone wrong with your computer, the good news is that there's always a solution. Even if it won't start up, it's rarely as dead as you might think it is. Startup problems, performance issues, viruses and malware, whatever it might be, I'm here to help.
Norm’s Computer Services offers both desktop PC repairs and laptop repairs in Brisbane. Some of the issues faced by desktop computers and laptops are the same. Both can have issues with the operating system, with internet connectivity, with email handling, with printing, and any number of other software-related problems. As far as hardware problems go, they can face rather different issues. A desktop computer will often have a separate graphics card, which isn’t as likely with a laptop. On the other hand, laptops have their own keyboard, touchpad and screen, any of which can cause problems.
Of course, desktop computers and laptops come in all shapes and sizes. A desktop computer can be a tower or an all-in-one. It can be a simple off-the-shelf machine or an expensive gaming computer. Likewise a laptop can be a basic 11" model, or it can be a 17" gaming laptop, or anything in between. Whatever type of computer you have in Brisbane, I'm here to help if something's gone wrong with it.
Computer repairs in Brisbane aren’t confined to just Windows PC repairs and laptop repairs. I also offer repairs for Apple Mac computers, so that means both iMac repairs and MacBook repairs.
Brisbane Computer Repairs & More
Yesterday your computer was working fine, today it won't even switch on. Startup problems are actually amongst the most common computer repair issues I come across. Sometimes it's fixed within 30 seconds. Other times it takes a bit longer and you might need some new hardware. I've written lots more about startup issues on my blog.
You could say your computer has a performance issue if it just isn't behaving the way you expect it to. In my experience the most common performance issue is that your computer's running too slowly. There are various reasons why this might happen and I've written about it on my blog. Other performance issues include freezes and shutdowns.
Malware & Virus Issues
Issues with malware and viruses are all too common. The malware may have entered your computer via an email, or from a website you've visited, or you may even have been hacked as a result of a scam phone call. Fortunately it's usually not that difficult to clean up and secure an infected computer. I can also advise you on how to stay safe in the future.
These are by no means the only computer problems and computer repair issues you may face. There are all sorts of other random issues which can occur. You could be having problems with your emails or you may need to recover files you've lost. Maybe your printer's not working correctly, or you have no sound from your computer, or you're having trouble with your laptop keyboard. The list goes on and on. Whatever problem you're having, please don't hesitate to get in touch. Some issues I see all the time and, even after doing hundreds and hundreds of jobs, there are others I see for the first time.
Norm's Computer Services doesn't only provide a computer repair service in Brisbane. I also offer a full range of computer services. These include computer setup, installation of hardware and software, computer upgrades, computer health checks, networking, training and more. Contact me for all sorts of Brisbane computer services.

Norm’s Computer Services provides a computer repair service on Brisbane’s south side, and throughout Logan City and the Redlands. Depending on what is convenient for you I can either carry out the repair at your home or at your workplace. Another option is that I collect your computer from you at your workplace.

Norm’s Computer Services is a mobile computer repair business. As a result, I spend my time on the road travelling from one job to the next in various suburbs throughout greater Brisbane. Most jobs are carried out at the homes of clients or at business premises. If neither of these options is convenient to you, I can collect your computer from either your home or workplace and return it to you after it’s been repaired. In this case you won’t need to bring the computer to me as I’ll come to you.
How do your prices for Brisbane computer repairs compare to those of your competitors?
You’re welcome to peruse the websites of other Brisbane computer repair services to compare my pricing with theirs. If you do so, you will find the prices charged by Norm’s Computer Services to be highly competitive. It is possible to find cheaper prices, however those offering such prices are much less likely to be providing a professional computer repair service. It’s more likely that they are simply supplementing their regular income by offering a computer repair service on a part-time basis.
Is it worth getting a laptop repaired?
The answer to this question depends on the problem with the laptop. If it’s a software issue or an issue with a hard drive or RAM, then it’s normally a relatively low-cost repair. However, if it’s an issue with the system board, I would normally suggest that it’s not worth repairing the laptop. It all depends on the value of the laptop and the cost of a replacement system board. It may also be difficult to acquire a replacement system board, particularly if it’s an older laptop. In cases like this I may suggest writing the laptop off and simply recovering your data and files.
How much does it cost to have a laptop repaired?
My pricing begins at $75 and this entitles you to 45 minutes of troubleshooting time. If the laptop has a straightforward software issue it may well be resolved within this time. If, on the other hand, it has a more complex software issue, this may require more intensive troubleshooting or even a reinstall of Windows. In these cases you may be looking at something in the region of $100-$150 for labour. As far as parts go, Solid State Drives (SSD’s) start at $49 for a 120 GB drive. Parts such as CPU fans and keyboards will typically cost $50-$100.
Is it cheaper to repair or replace a computer?
In most cases it will be significantly cheaper to repair your computer than to replace it. Software issues are generally resolved within an hour, unless a reinstall is required. A reinstall of Windows or the macOS is the most radical method for resolving software issues but it is almost guaranteed to eliminate issues and usually requires 30-45 minutes. As far as replacement parts go, the only case where I would normally recommend replacement of the computer is if a new motherboard/system board is required.
Is it cheaper to replace a hard drive or buy a new computer?
I carry out frequent replacements of hard drives with Solid State Drives (SSD’s) and can thoroughly recommend such a repair/upgrade. The cost of SSD’s has come down significantly in recent years and I could have your computer up and running with a new SSD and a fresh installation of Windows for as little as $150 or so. This is a great way to breathe new life into an old computer and much less expensive than buying a new one.
