So, my five year old laptop has been having some “panic attacks” a lot over the last 4-5 months. And I did NOT have the funds to buy the new MacBook Pro laptop I would like to have…
So doing a little research I found that a lot of these “attacks” – called “kernal panics” – can happen when a hard drive gets to be a certain age and begin the process of dying. Eek! Not good.
That, coupled with the fact I had no room left on my tiny 160GB hard drive, led me to send in my laptop to MyService.com to upgrade the hard drive to 500GB for an affordable $249. Free shipping each way.
After a week of jockeying between Michael and his associate John’s computers to keep the blog going, I got my laptop back and it’s great. MyService.com not only did the upgrade, but they did a full diagnostic and transferred all my files to the new hard drive and sent back my old hard drive for my files.
Now, no kernal panics – “spinning beach balls” – and I have a lot more room on the hard drive. Nice fix to get me through a year or so when, I hope, to afford the new MacBook Pro.
Just saying… sometimes the smaller answers can work.
If you have issues with your Mac, make sure you check out MyService.com – big thumbs up!
(And no – I received nothing for my review of their services. I paid like everyone else. Just putting the good word out there…)
