If your Mac stops working it might be caused by a faulty logicboard (also called motherboard). Instead of replacing the board completely, like Apple does, often it is possible to repair it. Some small IC might cause a short circuit and replacing it might fix the problem. We have a no fix, no pay, repair service so it's worthwhile trying! Our repairs are also backed up by 3 month warranty on the complete board.
- Component Level Repair
- No fix, no pay
- 3 Month Warranty on complete board
System upgrade solutions
Especially the older Macbook Pro's from2012 and before are excellent machines to upgrade. Extra RAM and an SSD drive will make these machine fly! Running out of storage with newer Macs? We have a solution for those as well up to the 2015 models.
- Memory upgrade
- Hard drive replacement
- Setup and installation
If you have software problems we might be able to help you out. If your OSX is corrupted or your harddrive is dying, we might be able to recover your data with our Data Recovery Service. We can also install a new OSX version, upgrade the current one or setup Boot Camp for you (Windows License is required!).
- Data Recovery
- Upgrading or re-installing OSX
- Setup Time Machine and Anti Virus software
Macbooks will start to run hot after a few years of usage. The reason is dust buildup in the fan and around the fan exhaust. Also the cooling paste will be dried out and needs replacement every 3 years. Our cleaning service takes care of these issues and will make your beloved Mac run cooler and therefore last longer.
- Remove dust and check for corrosion
- Clean the housing and replace cooling paste
- Replace missing screws and bottom feet

Deliver the defect Mac yourself or let us pick it up for free with our Pickup/Return service. It's totally free unless we cannot repair your Mac then we only charge cost price for shipping.
Before repairing we will let you know the exact cost. If agreed we try to fix it ASAP. If we cannot repair it, there is NO charge so you can be very sure we always try our very best!
After receiving our repair confirmation per email you can choose to pickup the Mac yourself, or let us deliver it to anywhere in Thailand. We give a minimum of 3 month.
1. How long does a MacBook repair take on average?
For MacBook and iMAC part replacements, upgrades and liquid damage cleaning the average repair time is 1-3 hours. For logic board repairs it can be anywhere from 1 day to 3 weeks, or more if you want us to keep trying. Since we have a no fix no pay policy, the difficult repairs go to the bottom of the pile and the easy ones come first. Since we do not charge an hourly rate we cannot keep trying for days to fix one mac, we will try it again when it is not so busy and thus sometimes we need more time to fix it then someone who charges per hour. If you cannot wait, let us know a day ahead and pick it up anytime.
Again, no fix, no pay.
2. Do you offer any type of warranty on your repairs?
We offer a minimum of 3 month warranty on our board level repairs. Some other items have longer warranty like i.e. hard drives come with a 5 year warranty.
3. Will I lose the information on my device?
We strongly advise you to always have a recent backup from your device. For some repairs we will have to restore your device and data might be lost. Therefore, make sure to always backup your device, an accident can happen any moment! We are never responsible for your data loss.
4. Do I need to make an appointment?
Although you can walk in anytime, it is always better to make an appointment in advance so we are sure to have enough time reserved for you. You can plan an appointment with our online planner HERE or just give us a call at: +66922540866.
5. Can you fix water damage?
If you have switched off your device immediately and not tried to charge or turn on while wet, there is a good chance your device can be fixed by only cleaning. If some IC are short circuited we might need to perform a logicboard repair instead. Our liquid damage repair success rate is about 80%. We warrant all liquid damaged repaired devices for 3 month!
6. Do you offer a free pickup/return service?
Yes, we offer a free pickup/return service in all of Thailand. We use Kerry Logistics and/or Skootar for that. Our pickup/return service does have some conditions:
