My Problem

My old 2008 MacBook was still in great working condition but unfortunately could no longer keep up with my graphic design needs as the OS would not support Adobe Creative Cloud. I planned to sell the unit, but with the casing so dingy, I wasn't going to get much out of it. As a person who has always loved taking things apart and putting them back together, I decided I would try my hand at disassembling a computer for the first time ever!

My Fix

I needed to replace to the bottom case on the unit to start as it was really cracked on one side. There was also a lot of chipping on the keyboard and on the front display bezel, and I was sure the clutch cover was damaged . Since replacing the bottom case requires dismantling the whole unit, I did these repairs as well at the same time. I was doing well...until I stripped two screws . I reached all over to get tips on how to remove stripped screws but by the time I did, the damage was too much. I even went as far as trying to selectively break parts of the old bottom case to free the components as a desperate attempt. I ended up ordering the parts that were stuck in the old casing from iFixit.com and started back up with the repairs three days later when the parts arrived. I was really sure that I had destroyed the logic board when the unit didn't start after reassembly....but it turns out the power button was defect on the new keyboard and starts up fine with the old keyboard. My MacBook lives!!!

My Advice

Be very, very, very careful with the screws and be patient. Stripping screws will stop you dead in your tracks and is extremely aggravating. I'd recommend watching one of the basic skills tutorials here on iFixit.com if you're inexperienced like I was. Also, print out the repair guide here and tape your screws to the steps where you removed them, that why you know exactly where they go and it's more difficult to lose them because they are taped down. :)

i spilled a cup of coffee that ran under my mac book A1185 a 2009 model & battery was ruined

My Fix

so i ordered a battery from ifixit.com They not only had my battery replacement and priced cheap! Then it came in four days

My Advice

You just dont find things that are this easy in life. It was a great experience. I recomend ifixit.com

My Problem

My harddrive broke so I had to change it.

My Fix

The repair was REALLY easy and fast! No problems and now my computer is working better than ever because I put more memory in. I also got all my files and programs back because I had made backup with time machine. It was almost too easy:)

My Advice

I was taking the computer to a mac repair store, but then I found the ifixit page. The repair looked so easy I gave it a try and it worked perfectly!

My Problem

I wanted to install Ubuntu on my 2006 MacBook (2,1) and run it side by side with Mac OS X, but my optical drive failed, so I could not get Ubuntu loaded.

My Fix

I ordered a new optical drive from ifixit.com as well as new battery (which has died long ago, but I never did anything about it). I also ordered an SSD drive, because well... who doesn't want a faster hard drive? The repair went very well, and ifixit's online guides were superb. But... because I was rushing through re-assembly to make dinner reservation, I ended up with three screws left over -- DOH!

Anyway, the new optical drive is just great, my MacBook now runs Ubuntu like a champ, and Mac OS X now runs faster than ever since I swapped out it's original hard drive for a peppy lil' SSD drive. Sweet!

My Advice

Never toss out an old laptop or pc when you can spruce it up for hundreds less than a new computer. While you're upgrading or repairing your machine, be sure to clean out any dust bunnies and anything else that may have been sucked up or crawled (an old larvae casing in my case - ick) into the machine via the cooling vents or fan. I cleaned the innards of my machine with an unused, soft toothbrush. Last but not least, allow yourself plenty of time to re-assembly everything while being constantly interrupted by your family who want to know what in the world you're doing ...and why. :-) Have fun, everyone!!!

My Problem

Had a 2007 MacBook core 2 duo which I used regularly until the battery died a year ago. I still powered it on once in a while but having to plug it to the wall was frustrating so it was finally abandoned and not used for the last 6 months.

Then I saw that battery were not too expensive on iFixit and decide to make the leap.

My Fix

Good I did, the battery came fully charged and to my surprise I had 5h of battery life. This is not one of the new super laptop with super extra batteries. Of course that went down when I really started using it but still have 3h of battery. Very happy indeed. :)

My Advice

I hesitated a lot because of the price of a new battery but was very happy at the end. If you love your Mac as I did, go ahead :)

My Problem

My laptop battery was bulging and I thought there just might be a problem.

My Fix

Opened the box, took off the plastic, removed the bulging battery and slipped the new one in easily, nicely and quickly. It works fine now!

My Advice

Ask a "techie" first, if you're not - lest you mangle your laptop even more! I wish I had known about this site ages ago!

My Problem

Black macbook has aged and battery didn't hold charge

My Fix

Battery was an easy swap out. Hdd took less than 5 mins to change out following the instruction manuals. Great stuff guys!

My Advice

Using Mac's Disk Utility was a easy clone and I could immediately boot up like from my old Hdd. Just remember to format the Hdd first to allow Mac to boot from it.

Spent extra 6 hours to reclone the hdd cos I forgot to format it the first time around.

My Problem

My black macbook battery was swollen and not keeping charge.

My Fix

"Out and In" (the old battery, the new one).

My Advice

If you have an old laptop, chances are you can still use most of its applications in the present. Parts are cheaper and you can leave your new "precious" at home and take the renewed one to work...or just outside with less risks.
