An iPod problem with a simple fix

I received a call recently with a customer having problems with their iPod. No matter what song he chose, it would only play part way through.

There have been several “fixes” posted. One of the more in-depth solutions was to convert all of the songs to AAC files. Depending on the size of your library, that could take an extremely long time.

These 10 simple steps will help you to accomplish just that, as well as hopefully find you a lifelong tech that you can count on!

Computer Tune-Up & Cleaning

We are frequently asked how often to clean a computerOne pretty simple answer is approximately one week after you change your thermostat between Cool and Heat. When we switch systems, a lot of dust is pushed out of the duct work and settles everywhere. This is the time to start planning your Spring Cleaning!
  • Optimize the performance of the programs & hardware of your system,
  • Check for latest Service Packs, Critical and Important updates that would help with system performance and safety,
