Mac slow? Here are the top tips to try in 2019 to test if your Mac’s hardware has been damaged

If your Mac is slowing down and you notice that your Mac’s performance is poor, it may be time to run an Apple diagnostic test and to check your Apple activity monitor to see if there are Mac applications which are slowing your Mac down or, if there are Apple hardware problems.

Top Apple / ZA Support tips to run an Apple hardware test

Run an Apple diagnostic test on your Mac. To do this, restart your Mac, and hold down the ‘R’ key. This should boot your Mac into an Apple hardware diagnostic mode. The Apple diagnostic takes around 5-20 minutes to complete, and should reveal any Apple hardware problems on the machine. If you find there are no Apple hardware problems detected, and your Mac is still slow contact ZA Support for the best Apple advice and Mac upgrade service in South Africa.

Check your Mac’s performance using the activity monitor

One of the great ways to test your Mac’s performance and to find out which Mac applications could be making your Mac slow is the Apple activity monitor. Apple’s activity monitor shows which applications are using the most amount of CPU power. It can also show which applications are using the most amount of Apple RAM memory.

One of the signs that your Mac could be slow is by looking to see if the Apple RAM memory is being used all the time to its maximum capacity.

By adding more Apple RAM memory to your Mac, you can improve the performance significantly. ZA Support has the widest range of Apple Mac upgrades contact ZA Support to find out more about upgrading your Mac with Apple RAM memory.

If your Mac is still slow and unresponsive try and rebooting the machine in safe mode.

To boot your Mac into safe mode, restart your machine and immediately hold down the shift key. By doing so, the Mac should boot into a new type of mode which is different from the normal login screen. You will notice there is a difference between the two.

In safe mode, your Mac disables any 3rd party applications and functions which may be causing the Mac to become slow or unresponsive.

Safe mode would also allow you to find out if there’s a hardware problem because, if after booting into safe mode your Mac is still slow and you find the general performance is poor there is a strong chance something is wrong with the Mac’s hardware.
