The 3 Most Common Issues in iMac Computer Repair 

While many things can go wrong with your iMac, the following three issues are the most common ones we see:

1. Virus and other software problems

The number one problem that iMac computers face is by far the software problem. This can be a virus, a PUP (potentially unwanted program), malware or simply the operating system failing due to a bad update or simple data corruption caused by a power surge, bad software driver installs or any other number of causes.  The systems can include your computer running slower than normal, freezing or locking up, or simply programs not working the way they normally should. Fortunately, no matter what the cause of your software problem Computer Heaven can get your iMac back up and running like the day you first bought it.  Give us a call or stop by today!

2. Failing power supplies

Your hard disk is where all of your data, programs and even operating system (aka OS X) are stored. All mechanical hard drives will fail. They have moving parts and ball bearings which eventually fail.  If your hard drive fails we may or may not 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 data, so you don’t lose everything in the event of a crash.  Of course, you should always have backups of your data. If you don’t currently backup up your data in real-time, give us a call today and let us show you how we can guarantee you will never ever lose any of your data, ever. Real-time data backup is very inexpensive and fully automated so you don’t have to do anything!

3. Hard drive failures

Power supplies are some of the most vulnerable parts of a computer when it comes to power surges. After every electrical storm in Baton Rouge, our power supply sales jump up. 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 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 are done. It’s just a guessing game since a non-working surge protector will still function just fine as a 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 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!
