Agoura Hills Imac SSD Upgrade Onsite Service

We often get a question if we do home or office calls. And the answer is- yes we do. However it all depends on circumstances. Because in some cases if the job requires lots of waiting time, like large transfers of data or operating system installations with file backup, I would rather have you bring the computer in. Simply because we can do it more smoothly in our computer store, rather than sitting and waiting for hours for some installation to finish.

And don’t get me wrong, I don’t mind sitting back and talking to you for couple hours, but I just like to be productive and do something else while I’m waiting for gigabytes of data to be transferred from one device to the other.

However in some cases we need to come out for onsite computer repair service and we do it gladly.

Just like yesterday, a lady called me from the office in Agoura Hills. Where we had to upgrade their pc and an iMac and fix some networking issues at their office. In this case we had to go to their office, because bringing devices to fix networking issues is simply not possible.

So I came and set up for the data to be copied over, then went back to my store to help couple other people and then came back to finish everything up a little later.

The point being here is we are flexible. We value your time, we value our time and we are good at finding solutions to solve your computer issues as smoothly as possible. We offer onsite PC and Imac repair service in Agoura hills, Thousand Oaks, Camarillo and surrounding areas!

P.S.

If your iMac is running slow, you NEED to change your regular hard drive to a solid state disk (SSD). It will start running 10 times faster than when you first bought it new! Trust me on that one!!!!

The Dangers Of Adobe Flash Update on Apple Computer

If you ever see this image (or similar) flashing on your PC computer or Apple computer screen. My best recommendation is: DO NOT CLICK ON IT!

Here is why:

It is a fake advertising. You will click on it, download the installer. Then install Adobe Flash update(which has been discontinued by adobe). But also, alongside the actual update you will install a lot of little programs that you shouldn’t install on your computer.

Those little programs usually come in the form of Adware. They are little software apps that infect your MacBook or iMac browsers and computer itself. Which afterwards causes lots of issues like, pop up windows coming up, search engines changing, your browser redirecting you to different pages, increase in ads you see everywhere, MacBook or iMac running slower than it should, etc etc.

This is a very common problem on Apple computers. It is equivalent to viruses you can get on a mac, despite the myth that Apple computers don’t get any “viruses”. While the “myth” is partially true. Apple OS is almost invisible to actual “viruses”, yet today’s adware can be so nasty that sometimes it causes more damage and havoc on the computer than actual viruses ever would.

So if you have happened to install this fake adobe flash or similar update on your computer. And you notice some unusual things popping up or your browser starts taking you to some strange search engines. You can probably be sure you have installed some adware(or even malware) with that update, and you need to give your mac a little cleaning!

We are open for business and available to do any mac repair in thousands oaks or Agoura Hills areas 6 days a week. Just call us at 805-585-5535 or visit us at Fastest Mac Repair and Pc Repair Newbury park at: 3339 Kimber Dr. STE D, Newbury Park, CA 91320 and we will help you clean your mac from viruses and with any other MacBook or iMac issues.

Slow iMac Repair with SSD upgrade

Slow iMac Repair with SSD upgrade is the best way to improve the way your Apple computer works. Just by changing your regular hard drive to a solid state drive (SSD), you can speed up your Apple Imac literally 5-10 times.

The reason for it is the read and write speed that SSD is capable of. It is about 15 times faster than regular 5400RPM hard drives, which are installed in older iMac and MacBook Pro computers.

This simple upgrade will make your machine run as if it’s on steroids. And your computer will run fast and smooth for several years into the future.

I kid you not, when i say people who do this upgrade on older iMacs are in complete shock when they get their apple computer back, because they can’t believe how fast their machine operates!

Most new computers in today’s day and age, come already equipped with SSD. However that is not the case with Apple iMacs. If you want to purchase an iMac equipped with SSD, you usually have to special order it from Apple. If you don’t, you will buy one with what is called “a Fusion drive”. Fusion drive is a combination of SSD and a regular hard drive. Fusion drive equipped iMacs are fast. But not as fast as iMacs with SSD drive only.

The way the upgrade works is, we copy all your files from existing hard drive to a SSD and then we swap the hardware. This iMac service also includes fan cleaning, which helps prolong life of your iMac as well!

So if your iMac runs a little sluggish, bring it in for a slow iMac repair with ssd upgrade service and you will be back on track in no time, feeling as if you received a brand-new machine back!

You can find us at 3339 kimber dr. Ste D, newbury park, CA 91320 or call us at 805-585-5535 if you have any questions about the upgrade!

Why iMac SSD Upgrade is necessary today!

One of the common failures on any computer. Whether it is a macbook, imac or any pc laptop or desktop computer. They all share one common component that used to fail all the time! and that is a hard drive!

it was literally the weakest spot in all computer devices, mainly due to complexity and different very precise and fragile moving components that require to build and make them work.

imac ssd upgrade, hard drive failing, first aid process has failed

The ironic part is that hard drives are pretty much most important components in any machine, since they actually store all our information on them. Especially these days, when humanity is moving from analog world, where we used to store our photos in an album in physical printed form, or our documents in folder in file cabinets.

These days everything is stored on hard drives and to tell you the truth, since hard drives have increased in capacity drastically. The overall quality of hard drives has also decreased quite visibly. When older hard drives used to last up to 10 years in many cases. and in comparison newer hard drives like western digital or seagate brand, last on average 3-4 years from my experience.

The good news however, is that in today’s times we have different kind of drives on the market. All newer computers already come with those. with the exception of 21.5 inch imacs that still come with regular hard drives (you have to special request it from apple if you want one with ssd.

As well as 27 inch iMacs, which use imacs use fusion drives a combination of a small ssd chip and a regular 3.5 inch hard drive.

The downside of regular, old style spinning hard drives, is that they are not reliable as much anymore. the failure rate has gone up, probably due to increased capacity of drives today but also they are much slower when compared to current new type of Solid State Drives (SSD).

One some packaging of SSD’s manufacturers claim SSDs are 15x faster than regular 5400RPM hard drives. Which are standard for most iMacs and older macbooks and most pc laptops and pc desktops.

So when i say upgrading to a SSD drive is almost a necessity in today’s times. I really mean it. Your iMac will run literally 10 times faster and you simply will be amazed that you computer runs like new again!

come do imac ssd upgrade with us. our turn around is 2-3 hours usually!

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. I opened my first computer store, after i looked around to notice that people didn't have a proper place to repair their computers at.
Most mac repair places take days to repair. Not because it takes so long to repair them. but because most shops are incompetent or have bad work flow. Hence they fall behind and as result customers have to wait for repair to be completed much longer.
It is similar (if not worse)with companies like geek squad. They hardly do any inhouse repairs. Most of their computers get shipped out to manufacturers or other repair centers.
So again, people like yourself, have to wait 2-4 weeks get their computer back.
For that reason i was on a mission to change this industry and get computers fixed as fast as I can. So you and your family can get back to their zoom meetings as quickly as possible!
Another reason you should come here is because I fix most of the people's computer in the area anyway. Most just collect them and send them to me or I usually have to take care of their customers because the "other computer geniuses" break something and computer still ends up in our repair shop after that. I'm not saying that I'm perfect. I also make mistakes sometimes or sometimes get overwhelmed and forget something. But that doesn't happen very often. and if it does. It happens because of my own error or accident, not because I'm incompetent nor do i need to hide it by telling you to just go buy anohter computer cause this one is not fixable. Like other people do. I write this, because i really take it personally. And i don't understand why people have to lie instead of telling the person they don't know how to fix it. and just tell them to go look for some other options. I take this service seriously. I love doing it and i love providing nothing less than a truly NO-BS-Excellent service to people who come visit me! hope you will be one of them! Oh yes, and 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!
