My Problem

The machine only had 1 GB Ram installed

My Fix

Easy : just follow the guide step by step

My Advice

Don't worry, just take your time to follow each step.

My Problem

My harddrive broke so I had to change it.

My Fix

The repair was REALLY easy and fast! No problems and now my computer is working better than ever because I put more memory in. I also got all my files and programs back because I had made backup with time machine. It was almost too easy:)

My Advice

I was taking the computer to a mac repair store, but then I found the ifixit page. The repair looked so easy I gave it a try and it worked perfectly!

My Problem

Old macmini on my shelf

My Fix

Good repair except I didnt insert the RAM far enough. I just needed to push a bit harder to get it inserted properly.

My suggestion is to recommend to buyers of RAM is to buy two sticks. I had two slots in my mac mini and I only purchased one stick. Now that it's over I wish I had bought two.

My Advice

Buy two sticks of RAM.

My Problem

I had 2 gigs of RAM and needed more speed for my 2008 Mac desktop. A friend of mine that's a whiz with Macs sent me your link. I ordered 2 2GB RAM chips, printed out your directions for installation and it was a snap.

My Fix

It went without a hitch. It was extremely easy. Thank you!!!!!! Now my computer is fast. It feels like I just purchased a brad new Mac.

My Advice

Go for it.

My Problem

First time replacing the RAM in a Macbook and thank god! It need it!

My Fix

It was smooth and simple! Take the battery off then punch out the old and swap with the new.

My Advice

Just the usual: discharge any electric charge, disconnect the battery and power source, get to work and get back at it!

My Problem

Yes

My Fix

Good

My Advice

No

My Problem

My macbook had a messed up trackpad so the cursor moved at random- I used the replacement part form ifixit and saw how easy it was. Having done so, I realized by hard drive was almost full and how easy it was to swap it as well as add memory- so that was the next step

My Fix

Fantastic- I have already reccomended this site to 4 people - my macbook now as double the hard drive space and double the RAM and a new keyboard/cover all for under $200 bucks

I can even now upgrade to Mavericks I think

My Advice

Before you buy a new computer, try ifixit- its makes it so easy to save money and the environment by reducing the need for new cmputers

My Problem

My wife"s Mac needed a ram boost and my old mac needed the same plus a Hard drive upgrade from 120GB to 500GB

My Fix

I ordered my parts and received the next day, I live in BC, Canada. The guides on this site are fantastic and super easy to follow.

Upgraded both my Macs and they are working great. Copied all my old stuff to my new hard drive using a utility called "super duper APP" makes your new drive work perfect with all your old programs and way more space.

My Advice

If you are unsure if you can do this don't be fooled, super easy to do it yourself. I have ordered from this site before and will order again in the future

My Problem

My Macbook is over 6 years old now, unbelievably, but it was running pretty slowly. I tried a few other ways to boost the speed like cleaning caches and deleting lots of unnecessary library files but it didn't last long. Finally decided to upgrade the RAM in hopes of getting the best performance for minimal cost during my last year of grad school.

My Fix

Went pretty well. I got everything taken apart just fine but a little trouble installing the new RAM cards (2GB RAM each, 5300) because you really have to push them in pretty hard to get them to click. At first I didn't push them far enough in and tried to restart and got an obnoxious beeping sound when i tried to boot up. Then I watched a youtube video of a guy who said you really had to push it in, and once I copied his technique both cards went in very nicely.

My Advice

Instead of facing the RAM slots towards you and installing the cards into it, try rotating the laptop 180 degrees and pinch the RAM cards into the slot. So thumbs closest to you pushing on the outer casing, and then 2 or 3 fingers on the RAM card pulling it into the machine. This should take a little force but will pop in quite easily.

My Problem

My dad had an old Macbook Pro that was lagging along on 2 GB of RAM. I typically turn to ifixit simply to shop - which I promptly did and ordered 4 GB of RAM.

My Fix

This is one of the easiest repairs that I know (other than "turn your computer off and then on")... I would recommend this for any experience level. I helps introduce maintenance concepts.

My Advice

Who can improve on perfection? A great guide.
