macbook repairs

Since their initial release in 2006, MacBooks have made significant advancements. However, even with their numerous advantages, they are not entirely immune to issues. Whether you have owned your MacBook since the early 2000s (as they have a long lifespan) or recently acquired one, it is crucial to maintain its condition. Fortunately, there are repair options for Apple MacBooks, so resist the urge to toss yours out the window just yet. Continue reading for tips on addressing six prevalent MacBook problems.

Performance is slow

Slow and sluggish performance is one of the most common MacBook repair problems. It is not ideal when you need to use your laptop, and it can affect any Mac, even the latest.

Slow loading speeds, response times, and intermittent freezing of the screen are some signs of a slow system. You might also see a blank screen or the menacing rainbow wheel.

Solutions for MacBook repair

Usually, a slow MacBook performance is caused by outdated software, full storage, too many temporary files, or a busy desktop. Try clearing your desktop or clicking ‘View’ then ‘Sort By’.

By clicking ‘About this Mac’ and then ‘Storage’, you can check the amount of storage space on your Mac. Make sure you remove any applications, files, or junk data that you no longer need.

Many users are unaware of how much space certain applications consume. It is also possible for browsers like Google Chrome to temporarily take up space, so keep an eye out for sluggish performance when using certain applications. Switch browsers, clear your browsing history, or use private mode to see if performance improves.

In the left-top corner of your screen, click the Apple logo to see if any macOS updates are available.

The MacBook display flickers

Flickering MacBook displays are one of the most alarming problems. They can also look like a loss of resolution or dimming.

If the screen appears fine, start MacBook repair by checking for physical damage.


Solutions for MacBook repair

Try restarting your MacBook if the screen is still responsive after shutting it down and restarting it.


In addition, you can switch off Automatic Graphics Switching under the Apple Logo by going to System Preferences>Energy Saver, then unchecking Automatic Graphics Switching.

You can also reset your PRAM and SMC, and check for macOS updates.


To identify any specific application issues, you can enter your device in safe mode. Also, disable or remove external browsers such as Firefox, as they have been reported to cause flickering.

Problems with batteries

You don’t want your MacBook battery to drain too fast. But don’t ruminate on the good old days when your battery lasted for hours, perhaps even days.


Solutions for MacBook repair


If your battery health is normal, move on to the next step. If it says service or replacement recommended, then it’s time to take it to a local Apple MacBook Repair shop.


When it comes to maximizing battery life, you can take steps such as not running too many applications or tabs at once, reducing screen brightness, and reducing screen motion, under System Preferences>Accessibility>Display.

Issues related to shutdown


The Mac may be refusing to shut down because an application has frozen. In some cases, you can still control the screen with the keyboard.

You can force restart the Mac by shutting down and rebooting after a few seconds. Force-quit any frozen applications using the Force Quit Utility.


Run Apple Diagnostics and check for updates. Rebooting in Safe Mode can also help identify the shutdown issue if it happens frequently. You can also try resetting the PRAM and SMC.

Hi All, I do not usually write the reviews, but this time I would like to thank Perth Computer Repairs for the provided service. I bought computer from my previous employer and I wanted to do a fresh installation of Windows. I tried to do it myself at first, but could not re-install the windows due to the security an error which said: "There is an error. Cannot connect the Windows Server while booting." Then, quickly looked at the highest rated computer repair service near me. Called them, got the good repair cost. Dropped computer and got it fixed quickly. The owner is very laid back and nice person. Very competitive price and very quality service. Definitely a place to trust. Currently, enjoying my fresh Windows install. Thank you very much!

This man is so patient - me being somewhat of an older generation and not tech savvy - he helped navigate through a printer problem and certainly recommend him to anyone with computer issues!
