English speaking computer repairs in Geneva area

My 4 year old has dropped the other laptop and now it wont open, I keep getting a disc error as soon as I switch it on.

Is there anywhere in the Geneva area that I can take it to be repaired? my French is non-existant so I would prefer to deal with an English speaking person if possible. Any assistance would be most appreciated.

Re: English speaking computer repairs in Geneva area

How old is it, and what's the manufacturer? Might be best seeing if they do a repair service. That's all a shop will do anyway (send it off).

Though in my former-professional opinion...I'd say it's f**ked.

You got backups?

Its a Toshiba, and just over a year old.

Its also a Canadian model as we bought it before we moved across.

The photos are backed up, still have all the memory cards, but the music isn't.

I think this is you laptop's hard disk problem becuase when the dic error is shown on the screen by the computer or laptop then it's mean there is some problem in Hard Disc Drive you should check this by the good computer repairing shop there is many computer repainring shop but most of shop owners are not expert and doing usualy work you should search out from the Google...
OP asked a question for Geneva area, you based in US have given a gooble gook response!

I think there's a Steg in Vernier, they may be able to help. A lot of their staff speak English.
