  MacBook computers are developed by Apple Inc. and target the consumer and education markets. It has been branded as the bestselling Macintosh as users don’t have to waste their valuable time troubleshooting problems. While this is true, a few issues arise while using Mac and listed below are some of the best methods used for MacBook repairs.

How to fix startup problems

Sometimes you will find that your Mac laptop will not turn on and this mostly is due to plugging issues. What you should do in such a case is change the socket you are plugged in to ensure it’s not the issue. Ensure also that power is going to the screen and the brightness level is turned up.
If the MacBook is flashing a question mark on the screen or you get a blue screen once you turn on your MacBook, then you have a startup issue. If it is displaying the flashing question mark you have a failed disk space and you should put your Mac in recovery mode and choose the correct startup disk which is Macintosh HD in most cases. In the case of a blue screen you should start it in safe mode and if the problem persists you should check your login items.

How to fix performance issues

Is your Mac running slow? The first step in the MacBook repair of this issue is to check the root of the problem. This is done by opening the activity monitor and clicking on the memory tab where a list of all the currently running problems pops up in either green or red color. Those in red color are the ones slowing your Mac down. You should select the application with the largest share as it is hogging your CPU and close them down from its menu.
We have all tried at one time to connect external devices to our computers via Bluetooth in vain. The MacBook repair for this problem is to restart your Mac. You should then click on the Bluetooth icon at the top right of your Macs menu bar and turn the Bluetooth on and off and then try to connect your device.

How to fix unresponsiveness

Your MacBook might freeze while you are in the middle of an urgent task and the recommended MacBook repair for this is to force quit. But be warned because you might lose important data. An unresponsive application might also be slowing your Mac. You should click on its icon in the dock and force quit.
A spinning beach ball might also appear on the screen of your Mac and this is attributed to low disk space. It also indicates that too many processes are running co-currently and it cannot take in any more commands at the moment. It is advisable to have a 10% of your total disk space free to have such problems.
If you experience delays in shutting your Mac down it might be because of applications that are still closing and you just need to be patient and give them time to close. You can either long press the power button or force quit if the problem persists. Forcing quit however is not recommend for MacBook repairs as it might lead to loss of data.

What a great service! In this age of rip-offs, it’s refreshing to know that a business quickly repairs your product AND rings you to tell you it’s done AND will cost no more than their quote. I wish I had more iphones to get repaired!
