Stories

My Problem

My wife's MacBookPro was becoming ever more sluggish. I had seen this before: the last time it happened, a hard drive had a catastrophic failure and data was lost. I decided it was time to banish moving parts from her computer forever. SSD, here I come!

My Fix

The hardest part was getting the drive set up -- it took about an hour to download OS X, and another half hour or so to set up the drive and install. I used the provided usb adapter and enclosure to install it directly to the new disk, and then swapped the old disk out. The swap itself took a whopping 15 minutes! The provided toolkit was impressive -- it and the enclosure together cost a meagre $20, and it was money well spent. I can't comment on its long-term sturdiness yet, but it looks very promising.

The end result? My wife's computer performs 50% faster (at least subjectively, because of load times) and suddenly has 150% of its former battery life. I think I just added another 2 years to that computer's lifespan.

My Advice

I had no idea how simple it would be. Be not afraid!

But do look up how to install OS X onto an external drive. That's actually the hardest part, easy as it is.

My Problem

My original HDD in my 2010 MacBook Pro died so I needed to get this issue fixed so I could continue with my school work.

My Fix

The repair was super easy to do. It took me about 5-10 minutes from start to finish and it was just a matter of popping the old HDD out and transferring the screws to my new SSD.

My Advice

If you have the opportunity to upgrade to a SSD, I would recommend doing so!

My Problem

I was gonna upgrade the Mountain Lion to the latest OSX, which has new features such as Facetime audio. However, it's really hard for the 2012 13" Macbook Pro to run the new systems with an HDD(actually it also performed poorly on Mountain Lion). Hence, I decided to get rid of the CD-ROM and replace it by an SSD.

My Fix

It took me 30 minutes to finish the replacement of SSD (didn't change the HDD from the original place).

The process by iFixit is quite enough but not so perfect. I've searched for some other websites which include much more pictures for each details.

If iFixit would have more pictures, I might be able to finish it within 15 minutes.

My Advice

Wearing a glove would be better.

My Problem

There is nothing wrong with the computer except its speed. It needed much more memory to handle the new Mac OS software, Microsoft Office and Turbo Tax. It would take almost 5 minutes for the computer to just boot up getting ready to be productive.

My Fix

I up graded to 8 Gig of ram, a really easy install. Then I put in the 128 Gig new SSD drive and used Super Duper to clone my original hard disc. Worked like a charm and now I am off to the races for the first time in years.

My Advice

I took the old disk out before cloning the new one. Put the replacement disc in, the plugged in the old hard drive, booted the computer off the old disc and did the Super Duper. Worked like a charm. The video and tutorials made this an undaunting task. I don't usually tear my electronic gear apart like this. Thanks for the confidence to do this.

My Problem

Bought a MacBook Pro early 2011, but getting slow with all the updates and software.

My Fix

Changed the 2 x 2GB RAM Chip into 2 x 4 GB Ram Chip,

Made a FusionDrive - The 500GB HDD and the 128GB SSD made together the MacBook Pro 3 times faster...

in Allignment with a Clean install of OS X I have new computer for peanuts.

My Advice

know how to make the fusion drive, ask advise and if you have questions.. => internet

My Problem

No problem, just little slow

My Fix

It went well

My Advice

It's easy, just do it your self and save some money. Here (finland) they took 89€ from that work.

My Problem

Constant beach ball. Simple tasks painfully slow to execute.

My Fix

Swimmingly. Opened it up, dropped in the goods (solid state drive, new RAM, new battery), and boom! Back in action. I had a few hiccups installing Yosemite from USB drive, which were quickly countered with the moves shown below.

My Advice

Before installing OS X, you will probably need to format your drive to GUID (http://osxdaily.com/2014/10/16/make-os-x...).

If you get an error message installing OS X (in my case Yosemite) for no apparent reason, you may need to set the time through terminal (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rvd1D129...).

My Problem

The SMART status of the old hard disk failed.

My Fix

Got the Solid State drive with the installation kit. Unfortunately, none of the supplied bits worked for the Unibody's screws. I had, however, an eye-glass repair kit with the tiny screw drivers that you need.

The sleeve with the USB connector was fabulous as I could migrate the system from the old device.

My Advice

As always, the fixit website's instructions and the figures were marvelous.

I would suggest you add to the screw-bits kit an instruction which bit to use for what screws.

It may also be useful to add for disk purchases instructions of how to migrate a boot disk onto the new disk. I used this youtube video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=onorIa2b5.... Although clunky, the steps worked exactly as described.

My Problem

Hard drive was failing, and had to replace so I decided to go with a solid state drive.

My Fix

Easy, the guides made it go flawless. At first I thought it would very difficult and even thought to take it to a repair place. iFix it saved me money and in the process I learned something new.

My Advice

Keep screws together, or else you are going to have lots of trouble trying to find them. Also don't screw them all the way in, because I broke part of my screwdriver that came in with my kit.

My Problem

My free-spirited sister could not be bothered with caution when drinking around a computer! Despite having a keyboard protector, she still managed to spill a drink into her MacBook Pro, ruining the hard drive and fan. She's been studying in Belgium, France, Africa, and now Australia, so it was up to me to bring the mighty MacBook Pro back to life!

My Fix

What an awesome experience!!! I bought the parts here, cheaper than I found elsewhere, and the detailed instruction guides were spot on! I was done, what I think is a pretty major repair, in no time and had the MacBook Pro up and running - like new!!!

My Advice

YOU CAN DO IT! Don't fear my friends, these guides are your own personal tech expert, sitting right beside you! And the gratification of completing a project yourself cannot be matched!
