Stories

My Problem

I had a fairly outdated laptop and decided that replacing the battery and the hard drive would be cheaper than buying an expensive new computer that I wasn't likely to use to its full capacity anyway.

My Fix

Both repairs were easy enough to do using the instructions on here. There was a bit extra I had to do in order to format the new hard drive and transfer my old information onto it but with a bit of digging around on the Internet, I was able to do that easily enough.

The battery definitely lasts longer but I've noticed that once I get to around 8% capacity, my laptop shuts off entirely. No warning. Nothing. It just shuts off. Can't say I'm a fan of that but it still lasts a lot longer than my old one did so I guess I can't complain too much.

My Advice

Do some research on how to install OSX on your new hard drive before you install it. It'll make it easier once you do and it isn't obvious enough to know on your own if you're an amateur.

My Problem

I am the office administrator for a small 5 staff non-profit. My boss' 2011 MBP had a bad RAM stick and an old HDD. I recommended to max out the RAM, put in a new SSD, and install Yosemite.

My Fix

Very very very easy. I kinda wish it took longer with more steps, I was enjoying the process so much. Having the right tools and a good guide made the difference. My boss was super impressed. He commented, "Josh, you're performing surgery on my computer! Amazing!" Not that amazing in reality. Haha.

My Advice

Don't make iFixit so easy to follow and find on the internet! If my boss discovered it first, then I wouldn't have been the hero! Just kidding. - We ended up purchasing 16 GB of RAM from OWC, because OWC clearly implied that a 2011 MBP can accept 16 GB of RAM. In case it didn't work, we would have returned it. Whereas iFixit didn't clearly state it can accept 16 GB of RAM. But overall we are very very pleased with iFixit. Thanks guys!

My Problem

Replace logic board; replace HDD with SSD; move HDD to optical bay; upgrade RAM.

My Fix

All in all, everything went well. Considering that this was my first repair ever, it took me much longer (4-6 hours) than indicated (40-60 mins). Also, during the repair I had to watch a couple of video tutorials on YouTube, because sometimes the guides alone weren't sufficient.

My Advice

To anyone who's going to do this repair, make sure you also get a 5.5 mm Phillips screwdriver. During the repair I came across a step which required this particular screwdriver, but I didn't have one since it wasn't mentioned on the list of required tools of the logic board replacement guide.

Furthermore, there is a Phillips #1 Screwdriver listed as a required tool for this repair, but I didn't use it since I managed to carry out that particular step using a Phillips #00 Screwdriver instead.

Also, at the end of the logic board replacement guide it says: "To reassemble your device, follow these instructions in reverse order". This is slightly misleading, simply because in doing so you would omit a very important step, namely to apply new thermal paste first. Therefore, I would advise to either include or refer to the 'Applying Thermal Paste' guide at the end of the logic board replacement guide.

My Problem

My original Hard Disk was almost full and slow for Mac OS Yosmeti. So I replaced for a SSD Hard Disk.

My Fix

I used the repair guide and video from www.ifixit.com. The experience was very good. I had no problems in doing my self the replace. Now my Macbook Pro is very fast.

My Advice

For those who has a Macbook Pro and are finding your machine slow with the new Mac OS, I recomend to upgrade the Hard Disk to a SSD.

My Problem

Yosemite (10.10) depends more on the internal drive then before. This makes a slow hard drive (20MB/s) a pain in the @%^. Is slows the complete system down.

My Fix

I follow the instruction movie. It was even easier then I thought it would be.

My Advice

Place your MBP upside down on a pile of big books. Then the screen is not a problem anymore.

My Problem

My mid-2009 MBP was slowing down until the drive finally crashed. I was hesitant to replace the drive myself while the drive was good, but now since it crashed, there was no risk ... iFixit here I come.

My Fix

Getting the tools with the drive along with a USB adapter was the key. I opened the instructions on my iPad - and they were perfect. A true no-brainer. Having a device with which to find the instructions was also a key.

My Advice

The repair is so easy, it's hard to come up with advice. I suppose my advice is to say - don't hesitate, the repair is as easy as unscrewing a few screws - then screwing them back in ... literally that easy.

My Problem

Needed more disk space.

My Fix

Very well! Tools, part and guide worked well together.

My Advice

When installing mac os on an empty disk, use an internet connection instead of the install cd which originally came with the mac. It would be helpfull to link a guide for installation after the replacement guide.

My Problem

My original HD was pooched by my computer overheating.

My Fix

AWESOME! It was so simple that it was almost hard due to over thinking.

My Advice

none really.

just don't over think it. It's literally a plug and play.

My Problem

Corrupted HD, Macbook couldn't start

My Fix

well - a little magnet included in the repair kit fell accidentally near the hard drive and i saw it last minute

My Advice

remove the magnets from the screw driver kit. They can do more harm than good.

My Problem

Wanted to speed up the system

My Fix

Replacement was quite easy because of the excellent guide (the user comments in the steps were helpful as well) and very good pictures.

Also appreciated the thought that went into the toolkit provided in the upgrade kit.

My Advice

Read twice (or three times) and fix once. Take your time and will all be good.
