List of Apple Repair Laguna Beach Items:

Apple Repair Laguna Beach Service #1: Tuneup Mac

If your Apple Mac, Macbook or imac is running slow, has pop-ups, slow internet and a host of similar problems, we can provide an Apple service that will clean up system, optimize the hard drive, update all the drivers, update OS to latest revision, delete cache and temp files, and uninstall unnecessary startup programs. Typical time to complete is 5 hrs.

Macs, because they are usually not turned off (most people just sleep a MAC) there may be many garbage files that accumulate over the years. Part of the Mac repair is to clean up whatever we find that is out of the ordinary. This service is good for imac, macbook, macbook air and macbook pro from 1995 onwards.

Apple Repair Laguna Beach #2: Upgrades for Macs, iMacs, Macbooks

Mac hardware is very long life, so upgrades to extend the performance and life are popular. The two most popular Apple services are ram upgrade and Solid State Drive (SSD) upgrades. Both of these upgrades may extend the life of the IMac or Macbook several years.

Apple Repair Laguna Beach #3: Files transfer to New Mac service

We provide data transfer service from one mac to another, either an existing Mac or a new Mac. Generally, for a transfer to be successful, the target Mac should have a OS newer or the same as the donor Mac.

The new OS is installed on a formatted drive that is different from older drive, then the files are copied from old drive to a folder on new OS in new drive. This is commonly used on new system, or failed hardware on old drive. If there are minor issues, we will do a Mac repair as well, and cover the time and cost with the service. This Apple service is common when replacing the original Mac hard drive with a faster SSD (solid state drive)

Apple Repair Laguna Beach #4: OS Installation

Another Apple service Compuboost provides is Operating System upgrade for Macs, imacs and Macbooks. We can update to the latest Mac OS install, and move all your data over to the new installation. Mac OS include Leopard, Snow Leopard, Lion, Mountain Lion, Yosemite, El Capitan, Sierra, High Sierra, Mojave and Catalina

Operating system installation service include loading all appropriate updates and drivers. If there are minor issues, we will do a Mac repair as well, and cover the time and cost with the upgrade. We can also assist in moving over Email and programs, and setting up desktop.

Apple Repair Laguna Beach #5: Mac Malware Removal Service

Removing Malware

Removing Malware is difficult. Since from the computers point of view, it is just another program, only humans can know if what the malware does is beneficial or not. In fact, many malware that is the curse of one user may actually be something another user may want. For example, a program that pops up the temperature of the city may be desireable to one person, but may be extremely annoying to another.

Just running tools by anti virus and malware writers are usually not enough. We use manual intervention, looking for things or items slightly out of place, to ferret out malware and their hidden triggers. These items may be on the desktop, in user files, hidden system files, even oddities like slight color difference or names. Many malware looks and acts just like the real thing (for example Chromium versus Chrome) so it takes an experienced eye to find them all.

Apple Repair Laguna Beach #6 Mac Data Recovery Service

We offer data recovery services locally for all but the most damaged systems. There is typically no charge if no data is recovered.

Recently, in order to make the macbook and imac thinner and thinner, Apple has gone to using SSd and custom form factors. To provide the proper Apple service we have all the adapters needed to read these custom drives. We can copy the drives to new drives, backup old drives and upgrade to larger hard drives.

Level 1 Files not readable:

We can recover files with the following symptoms.

  • Hard drive has been accidentally formatted.
  • Files accidentally erased.
  • File corruption.

Level 2 Hard drive corruptions.

This is most common when an upgrade to the Operating system is somehow aborted midway. This may be quite plausible because usually the OS upgrade is many gigabytes large, and sometimes the unit is inadvertently shut off or suspended because the user is not aware it takes such a long time.

Level 3 Hard drive intermittent, bad blocks and data corruption.

Hard drives can self correct, that is use spare data blocks to automatically replace data blocks it detects as failure. However, sometimes the process is not perfect, and data corruption may arise. If the corruption involves system files, then the system may not boot.

Level 4 Hard drive (bad blocks, control board issues)

In this scenario. The data corruption is more serious, and sometimes intervention like control board replacement, long reconstruction, temperature de-stress techniques (heating or cooling the drive) is needed to recover the data.

Level 5 Dead Motor, Bad heads

Require Clean Room Disassembly. This is the most serious. We need to send the drive out to a clean room to have it disassembled and scanned. Nominal handling charges may be required, just to send it out.

Apple Repair Laguna Beach Service #7: iPhone iPad Repair

We can repair the glass, screen, bezel of iPhones, ipads, Macbooks and Macbook Airs and Macbook pro machines.

We also can replace batteries, and physical issues like broken bezels, missing rubber feet, bad chargers

  • Cracked Glass
  • Power Supply
  • No sound

Used Mac computer

We do carry a small selection of Used Macs, Imacs, tablets and phones. Please check for pricing and availability. These macs may be both late model as well as vintage early models. Some customers prefer an older model because it runs certain software they want.
