Mac Hardware RepairDo you have any of these common Mac hardware repair issues? We can even take an older Mac and turn it into something that acts like it’s fresh from the Apple Store. And newer Macs benefit from regular maintenance to keep them working as efficiently as possible. Maybe you’re frustrated because:
- Your Mac is too slow
- Your hard drive is getting full
- Your battery drains quickly
- Your Mac OS is outdated
- Your Mac has piles of large and old files
- You deal with a lot of hangs and crashes
Mac Operating System UpdatesMac operating system updates can fix the code that allows hackers to install damaging malware or delete important files.

Mac Software TroubleshootingWith Mac software troubleshooting, we know a simple bad update to one program can cause instability in your entire system. And issues can occur in just one app, or in many. So we start by checking for software updates for both apps and the operating system. From there, we can troubleshoot problems with multiple apps by creating a new user account and also booting up in safe mode. Resetting the cache files, the NVRAM, and SMC, or disabling third-party fonts are also methods that can be used for diagnosing a problem.
Mac TuneupA Mac tuneup can be just what the doctor ordered if your computer isn’t operating at it’s best. One of the biggest selling points of the Mac is that ‘it just works’ and people generally don’t find themselves spending hours troubleshooting issues. But this helps to make it all the more frustrating and perplexing if something does go wrong. Here are some of the ways we can help you tune up your Mac:

Erase or format a driveGetting into the nitty-gritty of erasing and formatting drives can entail more complicated procedures in legacy Macs and other cases. We’re here to help!
Resize a volume if drive size is too smallAfter OS X El Capitan was released, some Mac users found that it’s not as easy to resize volumes and partitions as it was with the older version of Disk Utility. We can resize to help increase space on your drive(s) so you don’t have to worry about losing data.
Remove unnecessary startup itemsWe can eliminate login items that belong to applications that are no longer needed or used, and that gobble up precious resources on your Mac.
Remove leftovers of uninstalled appsThese leftovers are system files created by apps and scattered in different locations all over the drive. Over time, the remains start to occupy significant space on the disk.
Use Activity Monitor to uncover memory hogsIf a Mac lags all of a sudden, we use Activity Monitor to manage memory, fix slow applications, and troubleshoot various other issues.
