ICT Tip – resetting PRAM and SMC

Here’s a few tips that might help with your use of the Mac.

If your Mac is behaving in any way strange or slow try the below 2 things:
First resetting SMC and then resetting PRAM.

Resetting the SMC (System Management Controller)
*
Shut down the Mac.
* Ensure that the Mac is plugged into a power source.
* While the Mac is turned off, press and hold the Shift, Control and Option keys, as well as the Power button.
* Release all four keys at the same time (note: the Mac should not power on when performing this task).
DONE 🙂

Resetting PRAM (Parameter random access memory)
* Turn off your Mac. Don’t worry about disconnecting the power or removing the battery.
* Turn on your Mac and hold down the Command, Option, P, and R keys all at the same time (all four keys).

* Keep holding down all four keys until you hear the startup sound for a second time.
If you do not hear the startup sound twice, then you most likely have not reset the PRAM.
DONE 🙂
