I want a quote to repair a 2009 24" iMac

Does MicroCenter repair Apple computers? If so, I believe my hard drive has failed. I get a white screen and loading never completes. How much would parts and labor be to replace the drive?

  • White screen of death. HDD is very likely and I can provide information on repair here, however we do not typically quote repair pricing in our forum. We would have  you visit service for an accurate estimate on that.

    As for the repair with an iMac there are two ways to go about this. The expensive method is to find an Apple OEM drive with the temp sensor pins. The inexpensive way is to buy any SATA drive off the shelf and install it. The problem this creates is the fans will run at 100% RPM and it's quite noisy. Simple solution, Mac's Fan Control: https://crystalidea.com/macs-fan-control

    There is a free version. Set your HDD fan RPM to about 50% and it'll run fine.
