I took my computer into the Apple store on Wednesday to get repaired. I had been putting it off for months and months. Actually, I had probably been putting it off for almost a year, as that is about the time when the problem started. For some strange reason, my disc drive started clicking whenever I would insert a disc. Sometimes it would accept the disc and sometimes it would just spit it back out at me. Plus, whatever was clicking was in the drive, it was actually damaging my discs. They would still be playable on other devices, but the edges would be all dented. It was so weird. Especially because it started randomly for no reason.

So I finally decided to take the computer to get fixed. Turns out that I needed a new optical drive. We don’t know how it got damaged or why it started acting up, but nonetheless, Apple was able to fix the problem. I was without my computer for about 4 days and it was so weird. I missed it, but it didn’t affect me as much as I thought it would. I was quite content with my iPad and iPhone if I needed to search something on the internet. Technology is changing, that’s for sure.

I have never taken anything into the Genius Bar at Apple and I have to say that I was very impressed with Apple’s organization. They were very efficient and did not hesitate to get the computer fixed. Let me tell you that the extra $100 I spent on my Apple care warranty has already paid for itself almost twice over with this one repair. It’s just common sense after all. I spent thousands of dollars on this computer and I am glad I didn’t cheap out on the warranty! Yay.

Anyway, it’s good to have my computer back and working just like new! Have you ever had any experience with the Genius Bar at the Apple Store?

One Response to “Fixed”

    You may not actually use the warranty, but you sure regret not having one if you need it! I was so happy I had bought extra warranty time with my old laptop when the adapter started to make strange buzzing sounds and cause the screen to flicker. Brought it to the store and a man went to the back room to see what was wrong. Suddenly all the lights went out in the building, came back on, and the man came back and said “I tried it, and… yeah, something’s wrong.” Haha 😀

    It’s good you got it fixed, that sounds like a scary problem!
