Laptop Repair Services

Lenovo Repair

The Help Desk is staffed by certified Lenovo ThinkPad technicians. Necessary repairs on a Landmark student’s notebook purchased through the Landmark College Student Computer Package (see below) can be performed in-house, with typically a quick (24–48 hour) turnaround time. Should a notebook purchased through the program need to be left at the Help Desk for troubleshooting or repair, a loaner notebook can be provided, so you can get back to work immediately. If you bring a personal Lenovo ThinkPad with an accidental damage warranty, the Help Desk can repair your machine, but is unable to offer you a loaner notebook.

Other Repairs

If you bring a personal computer, the Help Desk is unable to offer any hardware repair work on campus as we are not certified to work on other machines. In the event that you need repairs, you would need to work with the manufacturer. For Macs, there is a local company, Brown Computer Solutions 802-251-0479, which is an Apple Authorized Service Provider in Brattleboro, Vermont.
