I found a local business that services Apple computers. I loaded the address into my GPS and headed out carrying my computer. I found the shop, dropped off the computer and told them what I needed done along with a description of the problem. They agreed to load the latest operating system, back up my hard drive and save the contents of my years of work. I provided them with a 1 TB portable hard drive. Now we wait. I’m expecting a call back by Monday to make the return trip. I have no idea of the cost of this work. I need my computer up and running.
