Stories

My Problem

Original spinning HD was dying.

My Fix

Repair was fairly easy, just remember where all the screws go and that's about it...

My Advice

IFIXIT had a nice step by step webpage that really helped me finish the job!

My Problem

I wanted faster start-up of the system and faster launch of my programs.

My Fix

Followed the directions and all went well.

My Advice

ALWAYS use the recommended tool for each step. Use plenty of pressure on the screws, so the driver gets a good grip on the fasteners to prevent stripping the head.

My Problem

My Macbook unibody alu, late 2008, has a good 6 year on the back. A few years ago, i changes the HDD and screen unit, since it was going bad. Now the fan was started to sound like a jet engine and it was running slow, plus the battery only lasted an our.

My Fix

I Ordered a new SSD, plus a dummy for my Superdrive, so I could installe the SSD there, the SATA keep the spot for easy instalation. Only trouble was the DUMMY install, The fan was easy enough to change.

My Advice

Instead of buying the dummy switch, would i rather just do the SSD, witch gave a lot of speed, the extra RAM helps doing hard task i FInalcut, Adobe otherwize hard to tell. The battery has doubleed in effectiveness, so wait with the change of that. Nice guide buy I fix it. And when im richer will i change the HDD on my Imac to SDD aswell, its really does a lot!!

My Problem

turning beach ball of death that have been disturbing me for years

My Fix

it is easy then I thought.

My Advice

Do it slowly and be patience on plug out the cable

My Problem

The disk was old and i needed more speed on my 4 year old MacBook Pro computer.

My Fix

The repair was as expected. Remember that it takes a long time to make complete copy of your old harddisk (it takes hours).

My Advice

Remember to put the small screws back into the same position. The small screws are different even though it is very difficult to see the difference.

My Problem

Slow, slow, slow... my 2009 iMac Pro was sluggish and iMovie was crashing. Setting that aside I needed more memory for all the photos and video I had.

My Fix

Couldn't believe how simple the whole process was. I was nervous yes, but the tutorials were great and the repair seamless.

My Advice

Take the leap, you can do it!

My Problem

machine was so slownly.

My Fix

I have problems with language (english)... But all is well. I just repair my macbook, installing the new memories and the ssd drive... The machine is now so fast them ealier... I also activate the TRIM.

My Advice

It's necessary activate the TRIM after installing ssd driver.

My Problem

Needed to upgrade slow disk drive

My Fix

The repair went very smoothly. I was always skeptical about opening my MacBook Pro and wanted to upgrade the hard drive to an SSD. I was going to have the Apple store do this, but the website made it look so effortless. Backing up, removing the old hard drive, and installing the new one was a piece of cake. Thanks iFixIt

My Advice

Do your upgrades yourself. iFixIt makes it easy.

My Problem

My Macbook Pro 17" unibody comp just shut off all of a sudden. I took it to Apple and thankfully they were able to "hard start" my computer and it booted up. They ran hard drive tests and immediately failed.

My Fix

I bought the SSD and installed it myself, very easy with youtube videos and iFixit directions! Once I had the SSD installed, took it back to Apple and they installed the latest iOS for free! It is at least 5x faster than my dying HDD!

My Advice

Make sure to have all battery power disconnected, can fry the logics/mother board! I have made this terrible mistake in the past and thankfully learned from it!

My Problem

I'm designer, so need high performace when using softwares like Alias Automotives, Keyshot and photoshop in the same time.

So the idea was to install my system and softwares on my mbp.

My Fix

Perfect !

I really enjoy the fast start and speed when using big softwares !

My Advice

1 TAKE YOUR TIME (I took 5hours to copy the disks, test to start from it and install it in my mbp)

2 DON'T PUT THE SSD IN THE DUAL DRIVE ENCLOSURE (connected in place of the optical drive) ! Because the SATA connection of the optical drive in your mbp is less efficient (even if the two are in SATA 3 with 6GB connection speed, which is my case).

So what you have to do is make a TURNOVER, INSTALL YOUR SSD IN PLACE OF YOUR ORIGINAL HARD DISK and put this last in the dual drive enclosure. Because the SSD require the best connection.

for the little story... In the beginning, I made the mistake of installing my SSD in place of the optical drive. THE RESULT ???

MY MBP DIDN'T MANAGE TO RUN MORE THAN 10 SECONDS BEFORE CRASHING AND SHOWING THE SYSTEM ERROR MESSAGE.
