Common Apple iMac Issues we Repair in Cardiff at NiwTech Cardiff wales

iMac Repair cardiff

From its release in 1998, the Apple iMac caused shockwaves in the tech world and it continues to do so today with its new 2020 release.

 

The iMac has gone through seven, distinct different designs. You may remember its first form, which was the colourful dome shaped computer, which would have fitted in with our 90’s décor perfectly and was revolutionary at at time when most other computers were that horrible beige colour. Now you will know the iMac for its distinct, sleek shape. Many tout the iMac as being one of the most formidable contenders in the all-in-one computer market.

 

What you may not know is that it is credited by some as killing of the floppy disk as it was the first Macintosh computer to feature a USB port. The alluring frame of the iMac we know today packs a lot of punch in terms of specs, firstly you don’t need a bulky tower and monitor set-up that when you compare it to the iMac seems archaic. The whole design concept of the iMac is to keep things simple, clean, rational and consistent, therefore maximising any users experience regardless of what they are using it for.

Are you having vague issues that you can’t put your finger on?

The logic board is what we like to call the brain of your iMac and it can be the root cause of a lot of issues. It’s hard to tell whether or not your logic board is faulty or not without performing a full diagnosis on your iMac, which involves a visual and electronic inspection of the logic board chips. The logic board can cause a lot of issues to manifest and an untrained individual may not be able to tell that this could be the faulty element. For example, a logic board issue could manifest as issues with ports or even the power supply. Although it is an inconvenience it doesn’t have to be stressful for you, we have seen many iMacs over the years and have done many logic board replacements or repairs. You are in safe hands with NiwTech Cardiff. Over our 20 years of dealing with Apple products we have managed to cut our diagnosis time down to 4 hours in some cases and as a gold standard we perform our repairs within 24 working hours. Customer satisfaction is a pillar of our business model and we provide 12 month warranty with all of our OEM, hardware parts.
