How to ensure you get the right replacement part for your laptop first time around

Opening up your laptop seems like an alien concept to most people. A lot of peoples’ relationship with their laptop is very similar to that with their car. In many ways people are equally reliant on their laptops are they are on their car – however when they go wrong many people haven’t got the first clue how to go about servicing it.

Laptops are fortunately a lot more straightforward for the man in the street to repair and maintain. At the end of the day if you need a new part for your laptop, the key is to make sure you identity the manufacturing part number on the part that needs replacing. Whether you need a new laptop screen or a new laptop battery – the sure fire way to make sure you get the correct part first time is to get the part number off the faulty product. The manufacturing part number is the unique identifier of the replacement part and this will avoid disappointment.

The part number off laptop chargers are easy enough to read off the adapter label (but make sure you have your reading glasses on since the writing is very small). If you are looking for a replacement laptop screen, it is always advisable to take out the damaged screen of the laptop first and record the part number off the back of it. The same applies if you are looking to source a new laptop battery – take the old one out first and record the part number off it. Then the next bit is the easy bit. Either go onto the Laptop Power UK site and search by this part number. Or if you feel as though you need your hand holding, give us a call and let us take care of the rest.
