Frequent Apple Computer Repair FAQ
If your computer is slower than normal, you can often fix the problem simply by cleaning the hard disk of unwanted files. You can also install a firewall, anti-virus and anti-spyware tools, and schedule regular registry scans. External hard drives are great storage solutions for overtaxed CPU’s, and will help your computer run faster.
If the computer is on but the screen is blank, there may be an issue with the connection between the computer and the screen. First, check to see if the monitor is plugged into a power point and that the connection between the monitor and computer hard drive is secure. If the problem is on a laptop, then you may need to get a professional to fix it as some of the internal wires may be worn.
A computer that suddenly shuts off or has difficulty starting up could have a failing power supply. Check that the computer is plugged into the power point properly and, if that doesn’t work, test the power point with another working device to confirm whether or not there is adequate power.
When you computer freezes, you may have no other option than to reboot and risk losing any unsaved work. Freezes can be a sign of insufficient ram, registry conflicts, corrupt or missing files, or spyware. Press and hold the power button until the computer turns off, then restart it and get to work cleaning up the system so that it doesn’t freeze again.

MacBook Repair & Upgrades
Where to get your Mac desktop or Mac notebook fixed and how much it will cost.
How do I get my Mac fixed?
To get service for your Mac, you can make a reservation at ClickAway, either in store or we can come to your home or office. Before you pay a dime, we do a free diagnosis to identify the problem and then give you a cost estimate on getting it fixed. Depending on what the issue is, you might be able to get it back the same day. If the repair is more involved, we can offer you a loaner device to use.
How much will it cost?
If your issue isn't covered under AppleCare, we will give you a price that most likely beats the Apple Store. AppleCare+ does not cover excessive physical damage, including catastrophic damage due to liquid contact or submersion, or damage caused by the presence of hazardous materials.
If you're experiencing an issue with your battery, your Mac notebook might not require a repair. Your Mac notebook battery service might be covered by AppleCare. If not, ClickAway provides the lowest prices for out-of-warranty battery service.
