Common Hardware Issues  

TopperTech provides resolution for a variety of hardware issues on WKU student-owned desktops and laptops. If our technicians discover a broken or failing component, TopperTech will contact the client and provide information on a compatible replacement unit. The most common hardware issues include:

  • Failing hard drives
  • Defective cables (video and data)
  • DC jacks in laptops
  • Broken screens
  • Non-responsive motherboards
  • Overheated CPUs
  • Failed CPU fans
  • Non-functioning laptop keyboards
  • Broken chassis parts  

TopperTech is a certified Apple and Dell warranty depot. Eligible warranty claims for Dell and Apple models can be processed through us at no additional charge and the computer remains on-campus until the machine is restored to working order.
