How to replace solid state hard drive on imac computer
Pretty simple really.... once you get the iMac opened!
Simply find the existing hard drive, disconnect and slip it out.
You might have to remove a couple of screw in locating studs from the old drive and add to the new drive.
The connectors should match up with the existing cable.
Called SATA (Serial ATA)
The temperature sensor is stuck to the outside of the drive, carefully peel it off and stick it on the new drive.
Use Carbon Copy Cloner (CCC) to make a clone copy of your existing drive or install a new OS X (Downloadt off Apple Site)
I'll assume you know that Maverics, Yosemite OS X are free to download. And the latest El Capitan is due in Days.
Mac Backup Software

How do i download iMac version 10.8
Apple gives away the 10.10 of every one who has an older version. The 10.8 you can buy for $19.99 in the Appstore. So if you can't download from news servers, you can't get that version. Ask your friends if someone kept a backup (Like I always do) on a drive or stick.
I receive emails on my mac and some I forward to friends,but their unable to open them youtube etc and ask I send again but when I try I cannot open either. Please Help
Hi Richard. Thers a good chance you have mail preferences setup to compose new emails in "plain text". And/Or, "Use the same message format as the original message", meaning if you reply to someone who sent you an email that is in Rich Text Format, then your reply will be in Rich Text Format but, if they send you an email in Plain Text Format, then your reply, and possibly any forwarding will be sent in Plain Text also.
For website addresses to be "clickable links" in mail, you need to ensure all emails you send, forward, or reply are in Rich Text Format.
go to Mail... Preferences... then select the Composing tab and ensure Message Format is set to "Rich Text".
Further below in the same tab you will see "Responding" and a tick box for Use the same message format as the original message (Respond using Rich or Plain Text).
If you always want to respond or forward in Rich Text only and every time, then deselect that option.
All links should work and be clickable from then onwards.
You can highlight a non working website link in the email body, right click, then select "Link" then "Add Link" to make it clickable but, you will receive a notification about converting this message to rich text format?"
Basically, the links will not be clickable if you are setup to compose new emails in Plain Text. Nor will any replies or forwards you send that are changing to Plain Text to match the format received by you from others.
Always end, reply and forward in Rich Text Format
Hope that helps.
How to sync iMac with iPad?
The easiest way to sync a Mac with an iOS device like the iPad is to configure both to use iCloud for syncing.
Make sure you use the same Apple ID when you sign in to iCloud.
On your iPad, go to Settings -> iCloud. The "Account" line will show your Apple ID. From this screen you can also turn on syncing for contacts, calendars, etc.
On the Mac, go to System Preferences -> iCloud, Click the "Account Details" button to see what Apple ID you're using. If it's different from the iPad, then click Sign Out, then sign back in with the same Apple ID used on the iPad. Be sure to check the checkboxes next to the items you want to sync.
