Stories

My Problem

The story is simple but hey, why not share. So my 10 year old son is sitting on my stool displacing the organized chaos called my desk. He starts going thru the middle drawer and finds a pair of cow magnets I got years ago. He then comes up with the bright idea to see if he can hold one magnet and make the other move... FROM OPPOSITE SIDES OF MY LAPTOP!

My Fix

Figuring I'm responsible for NOT teaching him that magnets and hard drives don't mix, I drop the $80 for a new 500gb replacement and I have him install it. He LOVED taking the laptop apart and putting the new one in! It was a simple swap and restore, took him 15 minutes.

My Advice

Teach your kids NOT to put magnets around electronics!

(I tried to load a pic, but the drag image option just highlighted everything... )

My Problem

The hard drive on my macbook pro was on life support, so I put it out of my misery. I was persuaded by the Genius tending the Genius Bar that I was capable of performing the replacement surgery myself.

My Fix

The transplant operation went very smoothly. How novel to have the diagrams in the replacement guide look exactly like what I was seeing inside my computer.

My Advice

Go for it. It will save you plenty over having it done for you.

My Problem

Hard Drive was too full to Update or Even Backup ... 250Gb

My Fix

Bought a 500GB drive and rolled up my sleeves .. .. OOPs the guide called for lots of hardware I didn't have. The Driver kit was bought to replace the internal battery on my stepson's powerbook, but i was glad I had it when I got to the itty bitty screws on the hard drive.

Back to my problem .... Trust The Creators .. Trust .. plug in a terabyte USB drive and make a time machine backup .. then check it (amazing idea-but always, always check your backups LOL)

Apple has a boot to Lion partition creator that i skipped the step on, the terabyte, i made a partition with the Lion Boot Installer that will autorun the image.

so with a lump in my throat I turned of the computer, pulled out the battery, unplugged the power cable and removed the screws from the hard drive. It unplugged easily, plugged the new one in, it was much thinner than the old one. Remembered to replace the little berry screws that hold it in place and slip it into it's spot to the left of the battery compartment.

All tucked in and tight, battery back in, power cable back on. Cover on, turned over, USB drive back on with the boot drive on it and the backup, hit the power button.

Success, Apple logo, a little slower than usual, but there, get to the screen that lets me format the hard drive. Thought I needed to do that. Found out later this was an extra step, I could have skipped this, when time machine went to reinstall, it formatted the drive over again.

After all this it asked me if i wanted to reinstall from Time Machine, I say Yes, and it goes on to a two hour reformat and reinstall into the 500GB hard drive.

After all that is done, everything is perfect.

all done and good.

by the way, the first battery I received did not charge, and they sent out a second one right away and it was fine.

all is fine and good, the other repair to the powerbook was easy and the battery was fine there also.

the 54 bit driver kit is something to have around or maybe glued under your dash, one under lock and key in your garage ... looks like you don't want to lend it.

Pete

My Advice

Don't wait, fix stuff

when something doesn't work the way it should have go back right then to the last thing you did. We changed the battery, it didn't charge, we tried lots of things, but the proof of the problem was putting the old battery back in, the old battery still charged.

My Problem

In the past, our son would toss his MacBook around when done using it. Such as slamming the top closed then immediately tossing it on the couch or bed. We all know that's a no-no without letting the drive spin down first. There were even a couple of times when it actually hit the floor or fell out of his book bag. The Apple folks were wanting to charge upwards of $500 to replace the drive but suggested to get it and replace it ourselves.

My Fix

The repair was slick and easy. Followed the instructions and a few screw turns later it was in and following the IFixIt instructions on installing a new OS X on there through the recovery option, the Mac was up and running within a couple of hours.

My Advice

I'm glad I found this site and the very useful information and answers to all my questions. I won't hesitated to come back!!!

My Problem

Yes

My Fix

Good

My Advice

No

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

Darren :)

My Problem

My computer would boot up so I did some research and came to the conclusion that the harddrive was the culprit.

My Fix

It was way easier than I thought. I bought the tool kit as well and it only took me about 20 minutes. Never worked on a computer in my life. I also decided to upgrade my RAM while I was in there. That was an extra 5 minutes. Super easy!

My Advice

Do it yourself and save money! All the guides are on this website.

My Problem

My hard drive on my MAC died. Apple would not fix it as the computer was out of warranty. I looked on IFIX_IT and it looked easy to replace.

My Fix

It was super EASY! A few screws to unscrew and the hard drive slipped out. Easy to replace!

My Advice

Sometimes looking on youtube or other sites can help you to venture into a task that you would never feel comfortable tackling. This was such an easy fix and I am so glad I did it myself!

My Problem

The harddisk was broken after a fall

My Fix

The repair was very easy and the instructions ware great

My Advice

use ifixit.com i never go to the apple store again (is 1 hour drive form my home )

My Problem

MacBook (late 2008) 13" aluminum, much loved, but creeping too slowly to keep pace. What to do? cannot go back to PC world! cannot bite the $ullet on new replacement. Can I teach this old dog (me) a new trick?

My Fix

Marvelously! But without the excellent help of all you geeks out there, MacBook would have surely died.

The thing that scared me the most was being secure about booting back up without losing all my work.

The thing that surprised me most was just how filthy the internal compartment was and that noone in geekdom had mentioned that issue.

First the boot issue: Macinstruct, OWC and blog.paulbower.com saved me. The first two with excellent guides and explanations (that I had to read and watch multiple times to understand) and Paul to give me the solution that I wanted--get my data to the new drive before install, and make sure it works prior to surgery. With the help of Macinstruct and OWC I avoided the pitfall Paul forgot to mention (remember to partition the new drive).

Opening the computer and finding mountains of dust--I was not prepared for. I did subject it to the wonders of compressed air (from a very big compressor--and was scared I would blow the whole motherboard apart.) But dust is sticky especially when attached to little blobs of solder--so I think the appropriate brush would have been a wiser choice--But I did get it clean--and nothing went flying off.

I also managed to quadruple my RAM at the same time--and now I am back in the world of macLove

The whole operation went very smoothly and I thank you at fixya and the whole geekworld for making life after near death possible.

Cheers!!

My Advice

Read many approaches and find the one that suits your way of doing things. Finding Pauls Blog helped me overcome my fear...be ready for the unexpected--and clean things up as you go! Oh--and make sure you have ALL the tools recommended. Fortunately when I found that I didNOT have the T-6 screwdriver--My local never fail me hardware store did--but you may not be as lucky! Whew!
