What is the warranty on Hardware Installation?
Both our San Marcos, CA and Carlsbad, CA locations offer a 30 days parts and labor warranty if we provide the parts. If you provide the parts we do not offer a warranty as we can not deal with the vendor directly. If you are having a problem with a piece of hardware we installed that you provided, however, please contact us and we will make every effort to work with you on getting the problem resolved.
Why is the Hardware Installation Fee different from the Laptop Screen Replacement Fee or Motherboard Installation Fee?
The Chip & Bytes Hardware Installation Fee applies to all components in both laptop and desktop Windows-based except those particularly excepted – including screens and motherboards. These components require the removal and re-assembly of additional components just to remove the required component; therefore we have established special, fixed rates for these items that reflect the labor necessary to remove multiple items while keeping the price lower than stacking our base Hardware Installation Fee.
What services qualify for the combination discount?
The Hardware Installation fee combination discount generally applies to the installation of multiple hardware items in one order, but is also regularly featured on coupons and online discounts. Keep your eye out for specials!
What about laptop parts like a keyboard or touchpad?
These items also qualify for our low flat rate, even if they require significant dismantling of the laptop.
I would like the cabling in my desktop computer to be minimalistic and beautiful like that featured in many boutique computers, is this possible?
Sure, just let us know what your goals are and any time we install a piece of hardware in a desktop computer we make special effort to arrange the cabling for minimal intrusion.
