Stories

My Problem

My MacBook Pro was painfully slow. I researched and decided new RAM chips would help. They did! The computer (now 6 years old) is like new.

My Fix

Simple instructions. Simple repair.

My Advice

Worthwhile to do, and easy.

My Problem

My computer was so slow I couldn't get anything done. I was running on 2GB ram.

My Fix

Ordered a 4GB RAM chip and installed it in one of the slots, leaving the 1GB chip in the other. The installation was pretty easy. Had to do it twice because the first time it seems the computer didn't recognize it. 2nd time it recognized it, and the computer is working great. But.. for some reason it's not recognizing the battery anymore, or it recognizes it and doesn't charge. So, basically I can only use it plugged in.

My Advice

The RAM upgrade was so much easier than I thought. It only took about 10 mins. I feel like I could upgrade more things on my mac after doing this repair, but I'm concerned I may have damaged the battery somehow.

My Problem

Laptop was super slow and battery was shot.

My Fix

Purchased new solid state drive, new memory modules, and new battery, along with a too kit from IFIXIT Thanks to guides, everything went smoothly, except I tore hard drive cable while detaching old drive. So I had to purchase new cable and then wait for it to arrive. Shipping was super fast for each order. Then, I used software install guide to format new hard drive and load OS X. Whole repair was very easy thanks to all info here. And, computer is like a brand new machine! Thanks!

My Advice

Careful with macbook pro hard drive cable. It is fragile. Also, be sure to remove screws from old hard drive to install on new drive. You have to have these screws.

My Problem

My mid-2009 Mac Book Pro was running so slowly that is was useless. After a little research I figured I could up the ram from 2GB to 8GB. Wow! What a difference. My Mac Book functions like new. This is a worthy upgrade and an easy one. You pop off the back cover and the ram is held in place by a couple of clips.

I also purchased the Y1 Tri-Wing screwdriver and it worked flawlessly to remove the battery. I had previously purchased on on Ebay and it just didn't work. Avoid the ones on Ebay and buy it here.

The next thing I need to replace is my track pad which is no longer recognizes clicks.

Overall I am pleased with my Macbook but I have had to put some money into it. So far, I've purchased a new battery, new hard drive, ram and we can add track pad to the list.

My Fix

The repair was easy, straightforward and worth it.

My Advice

If you mac is running slow, consider a ram upgrade. If you need to replace the battery, get the tri-wing screwdriver.

My Problem

Computer was running slow and was about high time for an upgrade.

My Fix

Without a hitch. Easy and effective. Computer started running like a race horse right after install.

My Advice

After buying 2 incorrect RAM sticks and 2 defective ones. ifixit was the only place that made it easy to exact the right RAM stick and provide them of good quality. I was very happy with the product and website. After this experience i will be buying much more equipment from the site and using it to make what would otherwise be costly repairs. 3 thumbs up for this great site and store!!!

My Problem

My cable was bad. I was already inside might as well give it some kick.

My Fix

I know nothing about computer repair followed your online fix it video and everything works perfectly. Saved myself over $500 from the quote from Apple store.

My Advice

Don't be afraid to try to DIY and save it was easy.

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.
