As Ridgway, Colorado’s Mac Doctor, I offer Apple-specific computer consulting, software training, computer upgrades, and a wide variety of computer classes.
Though I am not an Apple-authorized repair technician, I can troubleshoot and repair malfunctioning Macs, upgrade memory, replace hard drives, as well as assist with a variety of issues you might have with your iPhone or iPad.
Tired of wrestling with your old PC, but can't figure out which Mac to buy? I can help with that too.

Respuesta a "HDD Temperature sensor gone in 2011 iMac?"I just installed a 480GB SanDisk "SSD Plus" in a mid-2011 iMac (with no external thermal sensor on the old drive). I've booted from an El Capitan installer flash drive, formatted the SSD, and am installing El Cap as I write this. No fan noise at all so far. I'm hesitant to clip wires on the power cable, so I'm really hoping my luck holds! If the fans start roaring when booted from the new SSD/El Cap, then I guess I'll have to try P J Sch's technique... The weird thing is that I feel like I've swapped drives in other 2011 iMacs (possibly early-2011?) that still used the sensor cable, and therefore require the OWC part that Dan keeps recommending above. I have, and was prepared to use, that part, but there's no place to plug it in on this model! Learn something new everyday, eh? I hope so at least!
