I've never had a laptop repaired before from a "computer shop/repair store" and wondered what the average prices are?


Like how much it would cost to repaste a laptop?

You should call around your local area, and also outside of your area and get an average cost. Then tell them that you are looking to get it done and are willing to pay x amount.


Or you could do it yourself and save a good bit of money, really not that hard to do. :)

There's two ways to look at the charges a shop will charge for "looking" at you PC.  One, a flat rate to start, say $79. up front just to drop it off and have someone look at it to determine if it's hardware broke or software broke.  An estimate will be made for any needed work beyond their estimate range.  Two, an adjustable rate with a higher payment.  I have seen a flat rate for this too, usually around $50 per hour and parts are extra if it needs repair.  I experienced large corporate IT service vendors charging $150. site charge (just showing up) and that covered one hour of labor.  Parts were 30% mark up.  Hourly rate was $80. after the first hour.  There were contracts written that had one and two day response premiums with one and two day repair premiums.  It made good money as long as you could have the needed parts on hand, easiest with a confined list of hardware.  In the old days of TV repair, you could call a dozen places and take the first one that shows up at the door.
