My Problem

My iMac first started showing symptoms by rebooting intermittently. A few days later, the infamous thick bars would appear on the display, at which point the iMac would reboot. The computer would boot back to the desktop and would be usable for a very short period of time before repeating the cycle. . . .

My Problem

Wanted to add a fast SSD drive to an old iMac without removing existing HDD or optical

My Fix

The repair went fine. It's a bit tedious (thanks Apple) but not crazy.

My Problem

Adding a new SSD drive to my iMac

My Fix

The instructions are great and easy to follow. It went really well and fired right up after putting everything back together.

My Advice

Practice putting the connectors back together as soon as you disconnect them. The first couple are hard to figure out when you've been doing o . . .

My Problem

I just need to speed up the read and write speed of the disk, installing and using a second hard drive such as SSD will do the job.

My Fix

Taking out the optical drive and replacing it with an SSD went well just having some difficulty in putting back the logic board it took me a while to insert in back in t . . .

My Problem

Replaced main hard drive with new ssd

My Fix

Repair went good. Instructions were well detailed and I was easily able to add new ssd.

My Problem

The iMac got very slow lately. There seems to be a problem with the newer OSX releases running on magnetic disk only. A dual HD solution with an SSD boot and OS disk and a magnetic storage disk for the rest fixes this.
