2. Hard Drive Failures

Some people think their iMac is the “hard drive”.  However, the hard drive is a small metal box inside your iMac. Your hard drive is where all of your data, programs and even the operating system (aka OS X) is stored. All hard drives will fail sooner or later. They have moving parts and ball bearings which eventually fail.  If your hard drive fails we may be able to recover your data. If you’ve noticed clicking noises from your iMac or unusually slow performance, let Computer Heaven diagnose the problem for you. We can help you troubleshoot your hard drive and either repair it or back up or recover your photos and data, so you don’t lose your photos or data in the event of a crash.  Of course, you should always have backups of your photos and data.

Real-time data backup is very affordable and fully automated so you don’t have to do anything after we set it up for you!

3. Failing Power Supply

Power supplies are some of the most vulnerable parts of an iMac when it comes to power surges. After every electrical storm in Baton Rouge, our power supply sales spike. To protect yourself against these surges, make sure you have a good surge protector that is actively protecting your iMac. Keep in mind that ALL surge protectors will only protect a limited number of surges (listed on the package as Joules) before they become just a power strip.  Once your surge protector uses its limited number of surge protection power (joules) it will no longer protect your computer from any future surges. Some surge protectors tell you this has occurred by having the surge protector power light blink. Others never tell you when they have been reduced to a simple power strip. It’s just a guessing game since a non-working surge protector will still function just fine as a simple power strip. The reality is, here in Baton Rouge, we get a lot of electrical storms. If you haven’t replaced your surge protector in a long time, you may want to consider it before your equipment gets zapped. Be sure to save the insurance information on your surge protector packaging as well (most come with $20,000 or more insurance coverage). This way if your iMac does get zapped while plugged into that surge protector, you can get the surge protector company to pay for your repair! Not sure how that works? Give us a call today and let’s talk about it!
