Get help fast for your urgent computer hardware questions


When most of us think of computers, we think of the actual machine. But even the simplest modern system will have a collection of peripheral computer hardware, from modems and printers to external hard drives and cameras. As the computer parts list grows, so does the list of possible problems you can encounter.


When a piece of your computer hardware isn’t functioning properly, it can leave you in a bind. This is when a quick session with a computer Expert on JustAnswer can make the difference, helping you get the device working properly or how to find replacement computer parts as needed. Get the assistance you’re seeking, and only approve payment when you’re fully satisfied.

No computer hardware question is too hard for the Experts


The qualified Experts on JustAnswer regularly respond to computer hardware questions like:


  • I have lost the icon on my desktop to open the printer so I can scan. The printer prints okay, but I need icon to open it. How do I get it back?
  • I just spent 150 dollars on it to replace the drives on my computer, and they still don’t work. What's going on?
  • The USB ports are not working on my Ideapad flex 4-1130 running windows 10. I have updated the drivers and have done a factory reset and still get no action out of them. Can you help?
  • I have an old Maxtor external hard drive, and I misplaced the power convertor. Where can I find a replacement?
  • My one drive became oversized overnight, and I don't know what is happening. Can you help?

To give you the best advice, the Expert will need some information about your computer system. You should be ready to answer questions such as:


  • What's the brand and model of your computer?
  • And the Operating System (OS)?
  • How long has this been going on with your computer?
  • What have you tried so far?

With this information, you'll be ready to have a constructive session with the Expert.
