Imac 27 inch SSD Upgrade

Imac 27 inch SSD Upgrade, nowadays, is probably the most common repair that we do in our shop at fastest mac repair and pc repair in newbury park.

when SSD’s or solid state disks first came out, it did not seem like a big improvement, but now since SSD’s have become better, faster and cheaper. it seems like the most logical way to go.

Installing SSD into your imac, macbook or pc computer makes the whole difference in the world. because SSD we use, are 15 times faster than a regular 5400 rpm hard drive in the way they read information.

Imac 27 inch SSD Upgrade

so upgrading it really becomes a no-brainer at this point. because your computer will literally run 10x faster and you won’t have to wait that extra second for things to open and using a computer will become nice again!

how long does it take to do it? this Imac 27 inch SSD Upgrade took literally overnight. but it really depends on how many files your old hard drive has. yet unless your old hard drive is really failing, no imac has taken us more than a day to do an upgrade. or in some cases same day also.

most imacs even if you have an imac with fusion drive still use factory installed old type spinning hard drives. and they can be replaced and upgraded to SSD.

if you want to have a faster imac, feel free to call us at 805-585-5535 or stop by at 3339 kimber dr. Suite D, newbury park, ca 91320 and we can do it for you in no time! cheers!

Install windows on Imac 27 inch

install windows on imac is usually a  simple thing if you know how to follow directions.

in a perfect world! what directions don’t tell you many times – is what to do when one step does not work as expected. and you can not proceed to next step! which is usually the case with all apple products and their use! they are advertised and seem to be very flawless, until of course you run into some trouble! then you have to go scout the forums or call all your friends or finally go find a computer person like us to help you!install windows on imac

this is what happened  to this 27 inch imac. the owner wanted to install windows on imac. and she did it pretty much ok except of  one thing. she installed wrong windows! the reason being is that older imac do not support windows 10. and bootcamp notifies you of that when you attempt to, however in her case it did not and she was able to install it! soon after that however it was clear that something was not running right. and that issue was the drivers. the drivers for winodws 10 on 2011 imac are not even available. so computer was restarting and doing all kinds of strange behaviors.!

so she brought it to experts! but for us also it was a little tricky at first, because imac would not boot properly from windows 7 installation. it would freeze and stop in the middle of installation, etc. i had to go back to bootcamp and restore original partition, create a new one and follow steps from beginning and even then imac was confused prompting me i can not install windows 10 on this imac, when i was using windows 7 disk!

anyhow it all worked out well at the end! install windows on imac 27 inch was successful. everyone is happy!

imac video card replacement

imac video card replacement

is a very common repair on imacs before 2013. graphics chips used to fail quite often on macbooks, imacs as well as pc, mac minis and all other devices. there are couple reasons for it. some graphic chips were defective, some were good but perhaps were not installed properly, some overheated and their life expectancy has shortened, some just died prematurely.imac video card replacement

graphics chip overheating definitely contributes to failure and apple of course is a little responsible for it as well! first of all apple markets their devices as invincible and all super powerful designed for high end graphics processing used by creative people in all kinds of industries. now in reality, macbooks are really not designed for that at all. they might have powerful hardware and some do, but they dont have proper ventilation whatsoever. imacs are a little better but just as bad. they are all in one computers and they dont really have proper ventilation either, which is necessary for any graphics chip that will be overloaded to max capacity to process data, which makes it heat up to the max. as result they will have shorter life span and will fail and imac video card replacement will be needed.

another thing that apple is doing to their macbooks and imacs and their customer that not a lot of people know. is that they use cheap thermal paste to create heat continuity from the chip to the heat sink. the cheap thermal paste is not so good after all and it prevents heat sink and fan from doing its job properly also. if better paste applied some people recorded temperature drops at around 15 degrees lower than with bad paste that apple uses.

knowing apple, this maybe intentional. cs if your imac video card fails and you need imac video card replacement they will quote you a price that is not cheap and you will start thinking about buying a new imac. And their sales people will also steer you in that same direction. anyhow. who knows whats going on there. im just giving you direct info from whats going on in mac repair world!

anyhow, this 20 inch imac was not booting up. and after few tests and other component tests we quickly determined it was graphics chip failure. since this was an older imac it was actually cheaper to replace video card with new video card and problem was solved. if you have 2011 or 2012 imac 27 inch it is usuallly cheaper to get graphics chip replaced!

call us if your imac doesn’t boot, or you see colored lines on screen, or pixelation or imac doesnt even start. they are all indicative of video chip failure and they need imac video card replacement or repair.

Imac won’t boot hangs midway imac 21.5inch

Imac won't boot hangs midwayImac won’t boot hangs midway 21.5inch

if you see this screen. on an 21.5 inch imac or for that matter on pretty much any imac. it may mean 2 different things usually.

first – the most obvious and most common issue that you might be facing is hard drive failure. all older and also newer imacs still use regular hard drives and regular hard drives tend to fail sooner or later. hard drive failure will prevent computer from booting like that also in many cases. so to find out if your hard drive is ok do this: turn imac off, then power it on and hold option key. that will take you to boot menu and from there you choose to boot into recovery partition.

if your recovery partition is not there. then you turn imac off and turn it back on while this time holding Command+R keys. this will take you to internet recovery option. this way is a little longer. but whichever way you choose the goal here is to go to disk utility and test the hard drive. run first aid and see what it says. so you can find out why your Imac won’t boot and hangs midway.

from there if you get a message in disk utility in red that says your hard drive needs to be repaired. its a good indication that imac hard drive is going bad and needs replaced (hopefully you have a backup!)

if the hard drive passes test and turns out ok however. and still you Imac won’t boot hangs midway. then the issue is different. and that brings us to our point number two!

Second reason why you may see above screen when Imac won’t boot hangs midway. is video chip failure.

it is also a common issue especially on 27 inch imac, but also happens on 21.5 inch imac as well as older 20 and 24 inch that many people still use! graphics chip failure is very common and can be fixed by replacing graphics chip or fixing existing one! and at fastest mac repair and pc repair newbury park we do both! and we do it the quickest and without any hassles to you!

Meet The Owner
Hello my name is Eddie when i opened my first computer store, i did it because i was looking around and saw that people didnt have a proper place to repair their computers. most places were taking days ot repair things for reasons other than waiting for parts to ship. They were just taking forever because they didnt know how to fix computers or how to do it quickly. also some of them thought the longer they fix computer the more money they could charge a customer. and i was absolutely horrified by these stories. geek squad as a biggest computer repair service provider, ships computers out and people have to wait 2 weeks to get it back. who wants to do that? thats why i set out on a mission to change it because i learned if i focus on solving your needs as customer first it would work best for everyone. i customer would get their computer back fast and i would get to go home early!! thats how much concept was born and now its a reality! if you want your pc or macbook fixed proerly and fast. come visit us! we're open! also in my free time i get out of town and shoot landscape photography! feel free to stop by our shop to see my artwork!
