I cannot power up my computer

Technician's Assistant: When was the last time you updated the Operating System (OS) on your Apple device?

It’s been awhile

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the Mac Expert to know before I connect you?

I recently moved. My computer was stored in my friends cellar along with my furniture. The cpu acted strange sinc3 then but I was able to turn it on. But it wasn’t right. My cpu was bought in 2009. 21 in. My question is this. Should I take this cpu to the apple store to fix or get anew one?

What Customers are Saying:

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
