Tech Tips

If you have a problem with your Mac, if no-one else can help, you need...The A-Team. Actually you don't as they were a fictional bunch of mercenaries who couldn't hit the broad side of a barn, never mind diagnose problems on a SCSI bus, fix OS hassles or answer a wealth of questions about everybody's favourite machine.

Here you'll find common (and some not common) problems and questions, and hopefully a solution that'll get you back on the road to Mac happiness as soon as possible.

If you have a problem that's not covered here or have a fix/hint that you think the world should know about, drop me an email.

Note: The information provided here is intended as a guide and I accept no responsibility for any hardware damage or data loss as a result of following the information given. If you're unsure about dealing with any hardware or software please contact your local computer store and let them deal with it - better to do that than blow your machine up.
