Repair it on Time: Most Common Macbook Problems to Lookout For


Ever encountered the issue of running out of vital storage space just when it is needed? Or a failing harddrive giving last-minute woes before a presentation? If you own a Macbook and these are common issues signalling that it needs a repair. It has to be immediately checked by a mac repair specialist. When one overlooks such warning signs for long, it may be too late to fix it.

Issues have to be fixed, as and when they arise. If not, instead of spending a few dollars on repairs, one might have to shell out hundreds of dollars to buy a new device. This reason is why a timely stitch saves the need for other costs. 

Some issues are automatically resolved, after a reboot or some minor adjustments. But if the problem persists, one has to take it to the shop. Problematic devices and constant issues affect your productivity and efficiency.

The most common problems that require professional intervention are:

  • Outdated OS 
  • Malware, Hacks, and Virus
  • Software glitches
  • Serious battery draining

Here are a few problems that have to be immediately looked-into:

  • Lack of Disk Space 

One of the most common issues that computer users face every day is that it takes too long to get a job done. If the computer is working slower than usual, one has to check the drive to see if it is full. To check, press CMD=I to gather information on the problem. Check to see how much free space is available for use, and if it is low, some data like photos and videos may have to be off-loaded or deleted. It is better to unload such data to a hard drive or pen drive to free-up space. It is wise to consider opting for more RAM in the device, which can considerably improve its efficiency, performance, and storage. 

  • File Getting Lost

In this situation, the first thing to do is to find and go to Spotlight, an in-built search system in all MAC OS operating systems. The Spotlight search can be brought-up by clicking the CMD and space bar. Type the file name in the search bar, and the system will find the file. If the file is overwritten or deleted, it renders the job harder to find. But even such files can be retrieved when given to a mac repair professional. These services can find and retrieve files even after a device is dead. So not to worry, if the laptop crashes, one can still locate their files.

  • Frozen App

One of the recurring issues with devices is an app or program freezing; it makes the job come to a standstill. There may be a need to force quit the app by clicking CMD=Alt=Esc or selecting shut down. One can also directly press ‘Force Quit’ on the menu bar. Restarting the computer also sometimes works in addressing the issue. After closing the application, try re-launching. If the problem persists, it may require a mac expert to fix. 

  • Mac does not Start

Sometimes the power button won’t respond, which may be due to a variety of reasons. Check if there is enough charge in the device. Even so, there is not much to do in such a scenario. Without the device powering on, it is hard to find the cause. 


The owners can resolve most issues by themselves. But some problems need professional technicians who can fix them at the earliest. It saves time and money for the owners who might lose out on professional deadlines if not mended at the earliest.
