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.

My Problem

battery didn't work anymore. got a new one, realized, that the old one has almost doubled its size - thankfully, there wasn't anything else destroyed.

My Fix

battery was replaced in no time - was a bit disappointed that it only took a few minutes as I was prepared to work for half an hour or so. well the macbook is back in the "wireless-business"...

My Advice

open your device from time to time or you get full of dust...

My Problem

My MacBook 13", end 2009, 250 Gb, 2 1Mb RAM, worked enormous slow after loading Yosemite. The imac 21.5" mid 2010, 500 Gb, 2 2Mb RAM, was a little bit slower after Yosemite but had open space for 2 more RAM chips.

My Fix

Inside the MacBook 13", end 2009 I changed the Hitachi HD 250 Gb. I put in a 1 TB Seagate SSD Hybrid HD and 2 new 4 Mb RAM chips. To do all this was really not complicated. ifixit delivered a super repair kit! First of all I studied very good the Youtube movies about the repair procedure.

To introduce the RAM chips in the imac was an easy thing. First I was a little bit worried about how strong you have to pull at the plastic bands to take out the chips. But for my case it was not really necessary to pull those out because there was open space which I filled with 2 2Mb RAM chips. Totally I have now 8 Mb RAM. The imac works now again the best.

Both make-ups were done in a short time.

Loading the datas from the old HD to the new SSD in the MacBook:

First of all I secured the datas on a LaCie back-up HD. After the make-up I tried first to reload from the old HD by using the delivered Drive Enclosure. This didn't work correctly. It showed the "mistake 254" again and again and I was not successful. So I tried with the Lacie HD. This worked the best.

My Advice

The most time I lost was to find the right RAM chip product for the imac 21.5" mid 2010.

I am very lucky to have found IFIXIT in the internet. It's really great how perfect all went on with the make-up of my old Computers: especially too the email contact, the order and payment administration and delivery. I ordered at 12-30-2014 in the morning and got the devices 01-05-2015 at 10.00 am at the door in Cham Switzerland (delivery over New Year's Day and Weekend!). Thank you very much! Great!

I have now the feeling and result of a brand new MacBook. That's amazing.

My Problem

I had 4GB of RAM and no experience doing personal laptop repairs or upgrades, but with online tutorials, decided to give it a try.

My Fix

Found what I needed on the ifixit website. They shipped it super quickly! (Did I mention that I live in Korea?) And, when I finally had the courage to tackle the project, I was pleased to find that it was super easy and quick! Now, my laptop is going at 8GB of RAM with no problems in sight.

My Advice

Read up online and watch tutorial videos. It's much easier than I thought it would be! Thanks for helping me to continue updating my website about my adventures abroad, at stacylaughs.com !

My Problem

3rd hard drive went out and when I replaced hard drive the mac pro would not boot. Called Ifixit and after explaining what I had already done, suggested removing one of the ram chips. The ram was part of the problem, replaced it and all is well.

My Fix

instructions easy

My Advice

go solid state whenever you upgrade HD's and don't assume RAM isn't the problem.
