Stories

My Problem

My macbook stopped working and the screen would be grey on startup, sometimes with a blinking folder with a question mark.

My Fix

I replaced the hard drive, but ran into the same startup issue. The hard drive I purchased had a USB enclosure. I was able to see that the my old hard drive was not busted and could boot up off the USB drive. After reading other reviews, I replaced the cable going to the hard drive. My sister had one lying around, so luckily I was able to grab hers.

My Advice

It was worth buying the hard drive kit with the tools and USB enclosure.

My Problem

After upgrade to OS El Capitain, my macbook was too slow. On the same time, the battery was down for an intensive use during 6 years.

My Fix

Perfect!!! The battery was fitted and recognized by system and my macbook accept 8 gb of ram. The HD was ok and i used a software called "trim enabler" to activate TRIM SUPPORT for non-Apple HD.

Great idea to supply the HD Kit: if you don't have the correct tools, it's very hard to fix a mac.

My Advice

Nothing

My Problem

Changing the original HDD by a SSD to enhance performance

My Fix

It went great! Only took me 15 min

My Advice

If you have doubts about buying a new Mac or upgrading yours, I would recommend upgrading it. Even if you're not happy with the new performance, you can still re-sell it and buy the new one.

In my case, I'm so happy with the upgrade I don't think I would need to buy a new one for the next couple of years!

My Problem

Original HD was very slow

My Fix

The title gives it away. Less than 10 minutes

My Advice

Helps to line up your screws in the arrangement that they came out.

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!
