Powerbook 15" 1.33ghz Repaired

Recently repaired powerbook 1.33ghz machine,
it had recently been upgraded with os x 10.5 and whilst it was being updated via apple updates the system crashed and basically made the system hardly run any programs/apps on its system.

I basically thought it was best to do clean install (achive & install) after a disk utilities failed
to fixed the problems that existed after the failed apple update. It turned out the hard drive
was failing hence why the update could’t finish its update and screwed the whole system in the process.

I only found out the hard drive was dying after i did the Archive and Install of 10.5 and at the end
of the install it mentioned user files and network prefs could be transfered over from previous system.
Then I restarted and i suddenly got the missing system folder icon, did a quick boot up via DVD and saw the hard drive was’t showing anymore. (the drive was almost 5 or 6 years old so it had done pretty well and was making alsorts of noises before it died)

Strangly enough smart status always said the disk was Verified in system profiler.

I replaced the 60gb hard drive with a brand new samsung 160gb drive, everything is now working
a treat with os x 10.5.

Powerbooks

Sorry did’t realise I had’t posted anything on here for over an year.

I’ve recently had alot of calls regarding powerbooks, mostly ones that
have stopped working and appear to be totally dead.

Also have powerbook in that was acting strangly after a failed 10.5 apple update,
turns out once I tried to reinstall a new 10.5 system the hard drive died.
Mind you it was the original 60gb hard drive, so it had done well to last that long.

Update to site to follow shortly, to see if I can find some more clients!!!!
Advertising again on freeads and gumtree (kent).

It’s been a while!

Yep it’s been a while since I last posted a blog via the site, but better late then never.
Since the move to Dartford I’ve had afew jobs one being a ibook G4 that needed a new
DC-in board replacing which was a pretty straightforward job once I located the part for it.

The other job being a upgrade of 10.3 to 10.4 tiger on ibook which was needed to run one
a 3G usb wireless internet device.

Also just thought I’d mention macrevitalise.co.uk is now top on google if you search
for mac repairs dartford or apple mac repairs dartford. So hopefully more people can find me locally to dartford for there mac repairs.

Relocation, Relocation

Not posted for months, still getting various jobs in regarding replacement hard drives for mostly powerbooks at the moment. It also seems like lots of powerbooks invertor boards are packing up at the moment too.

Am in the process of relocating to Kent and will then only be operating my apple mac repair services within the Gravesend, Greenhithe, Dartford, Darenth, Bluewater, Crayford, Bexley & Bexleyheath areas.
