My Problem

I ran out of storage on my stock late 2008 early 2009 MacBook HD. I ordered a WD HD from another site and my computer hated it. It would crash randomly and took around 5 power on/off attempts to get it started every time. I returned the WD and bought a seagate from this site for almost half the price. With the extra money I also bought more RAM.

My Fix

The upgrade was insanely easy. You just pop some covers off, unscrew a few things and replace.

My Advice

I would suggest upgrading to 8gb of RAM if you're running 4gb. I didn't think the difference would be this noticeable. This site is pretty legit. I would also suggest ordering from them again. A side note, I had trouble with backing up between different operating systems and had to install Yosemite from mountain lion in order to transfer my backup.

My Problem

My wife's '09 MacBook Pro (2.53GHz) was beyond slow and was irritating her beyond belief. I ended up bumping the RAM to see if that helped, but not a whole lot. Her issue was the stock 250GB HDD, which was slow as dirt. She had about 75% of it taken up, but it just lagged in retrieval speed. Time to move from HDD to Hybrid......SSD was a bit much in price for her overall amount of storage. Maybe next time :p

My Fix

Installing the new 1TB Hybrid drive and new RAM (doubled and maxed her MB to 8GB) was very easy (just make sure you match the BUS speed.....I got 2x 4GB PC3-12800 for a little less $$$ than the recommended PC3-8500, but found out the BUS maxes as 8500). The instructions on this site were easy to follow and clear.

My Advice

I had to download a cloning software (i.e. SuperDuper), so other than that it went smoothly. Cloning was super easy and straight forward.

My Problem

I was unable to upgrade to OS Yosemite because of a S.M.A.R.T. error in the old hard disk.

My Fix

The replacement was very easy and quick. I used the opportunity for a RAM upgrade as well. Installation of both the HD and the RAM went pretty smoothly.

My Advice

I did not have to remove the battery as the guide suggested. Also, I purchased the repair kit, thinking I would need the different screw driver tips. I only needed the 00 philips, so buying the whole set was unnecessary. It would be good to mention to folks that if you never opened your laptop before there will be dirt in there that you should consider cleaning, and perhaps explain in your guide safe ways to do that. Also, was not expecting the external case for the old drive to be rubber, so had to think for a sec how to jam the old drive into it. It worked fine in the end. Did not see if you have guides for transferring data to the new drive - I had to plug my old drive via usb and start the machine with it to use it to install the new OS into the new drive, and then migrate all my old info into the new drive. Worked well in the end.

My Problem

The computer was simply getting too slow; I run Yosemite 10.10.3 and did lots of video editing protects running Final Cut Pro X 10.4 and it was putting a toll on my computer. Somehow some applications kept crashing and the videos would take a while to edit. Also I was told by the Apple tech that my hard drive was about to fail.

My Fix

I replaced the RAM memory to 8G; flawless. The SSD installation was a bit complicated since I used the dual drive and took the CD/DVD writer out and replaced it with the Kit. It was not too complicated if you have the patience and you like to do this kinda stuff. It took me about 2 hours to complete the process. I watched the tutorials a couple times before opening up my MacBook Pro. And it was easy enough.

My Advice

My advice is, MAKE SURE YOU format the new hard drive and use Time Machine back up BEFORE you open the computer and start replacing ANY PARTS. Somehow (this is the second time that happens to me unfortunately) when handling the hard drives; the old ones tend to corrupt and won't boot afterwards. Buy the SSD with the kit if you don't have one, plug it; format it to Mac OS Journaled and back up all you data. Save yourself a trip to the Apple Store.

My Problem

I was having issues with my system freezing on me and having to do a hard reboot all the time to fix it. I also noticed several times that I would hear a repetitive clicking sound coming from the hard drive during several freeze ups. My current MacBook Pro was purchased in 2009 as a replacement for my old one who's hard drive had finally went bad.

My Fix

The guides I used from Ifixit were so simple - I was in and out in no time, and everything went according to plan. I replaced my old 500GB HD with a new 1TB SSD hybrid which I also purchased right through Ifixit.com. While I was in there I doubled my memory by changing my RAM. Now it seems like I have a brand new MacBook Pro. None of this cost me hundreds of dollars at a local repair shop to diagnose and repair.

My Advice

Follow the guides (mine were quite easy to use) and you should not have any troubles as long as you are following the correct guide for what you need to do. I will definitely come back here again if I have other things that might need to fix. Thank you!!!

My Problem

Mid 2009 MacBook Pro slow

My Fix

Replaced RAM in less than 10 mins.

My Advice

Don't be intimidated replacing RAM. Easy to use directions allowed me to replace RAM in less than 10 mins. I noticed a difference in the speed immediately. Would recommend to others as a easy, quick and satisfactory upgrade for less than $120.

My Problem

After about five years of heavy use on my Mid-2010 MacBook Pro, the battery had become disfigured, warping my trackpad along with it. Also, my computer was acting very sluggish.

My Fix

After I received my iFixit delivery, I replaced my RAM and my battery using the 54 Bit Driver Kit and iFixit's easy guides. Everything went perfect. It only took a few minutes, and my MacBook was back up and running.

My Advice

iFixit has great products and great repair guides. If you think tinkering with your laptop is too difficult and only professional geeks can fix it, then you should rethink your philosophy because it's really easy with the right tools and the right guide, and you can find both here at iFixit.

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

Needed more memory per Apple. New iOS need more memory.

My Fix

I followed the guide and was done in a few minutes. Thanks

My Advice

Follow the guide

My Problem

My girlfriend's MacBook Pro (Mid 2009) was sooo slow @ 2GB RAM, yet working with the hardware in Mac computers for me was a mystery, yet with your web site, everythings seemed very easy to do, so I went for it. In the mean time, she bought a new Macbook Air (2014) because of the situation, and want it to throw the MacBook Pro away, but because of your site, I told her to give it chance, and she did. Now, because she's so in love with her new Macbook Air, I think I might have a new computer for now. ;)

My Fix

It went flawlessly. Thank you guys and gals!

My Advice

Always choose ways to repair and replace hardware on your computer, instead of just throwing it away, at least to make it as long as it is posible. That way, we could make a big difference to our planet and reduce the trash. Keep the information going, and lets use the full capacity of this already great computers.
