My Problem

When Apple recalled my late 2009 iMac because of hard drive issues, I was busy / procrastinating / lazy / traveling / etc. The computer still worked, and while everything I had was backed-up and in the cloud, I couldn't upgrade to Yosemite because it recognized the serial number of a recalled HD and refused to play along. This prompted me to examine my options before paying someone to replace the HD. I came across IFIXIT online and was very impressed with the information provided, how remarkably easy it was to use the website, the prices, and the philosophy of "at least try to fix it".

My Fix

The repair was a definite success. The directions and online help were invaluable. The only technical issue I had involved the iMac HD cooling fan, which was warned about in the instructions. After installing the new drive and closing the computer back up, I had to open it again to undo the instruction for 'reversing the HD temp sensor connector'. Using some forum recommended software, I discovered that the particular new HD I installed (a Seagate 1TB SSD Hybrid) would work with the original connector in its original orientation, with no changes needed. I suspect that with manufacturing and design changing so rapidly, work-arounds in repair procedures that are needed one day are unnecessary at some point in the future. In any event, it provided another learning experience!

My Advice

Well done with your website. You have finally given me justification for refusing to recycle all those older Apple computers (I think my wife will thank you).

1) When putting everything back together I dropped the last screw into the computer innards because one of the magnets that hold the faceplate on whipped it off the screwdriver. I had to take everything apart again, but I refused to leave it loose in there. Even using needle-nose pliers to hold the screws was difficult for me because of the strength of the magnets. If there are real-world hints for solving this it would be good to know.

2) Having parts and suggested tools available and combined with the repair instructions is very much appreciated. It is truly one-stop shopping for both knowledge and function.

My Problem

2GB was just way to slow. I bought one 4GB RAM chip I should have bought two. But wow what a difference one made.

My Fix

The repair went well. The only issue I had was when I went to go and put the screws back in I didn't realize that One of them was bigger than the rest. It took a few tries but it went back together easily enough.

My Advice

If you have a Mac like mine get the upgrades.

My Problem

Stock 4GB RAM in Mac Book Pro 13 mid 2009 too weak in today's pop-up graphic heavy world

My Fix

Repair Guide from ifixit made job too easy, 20 minutes tops. so I used Dodge RAM 1500 instead, Took 3 days, & now the Mac has a cool dual pipes sound.

My Advice

Do Not allow 2.5 yo granddaughter or cats near workspace. 10 little screws easily fall on floor & lost forever.

Used #000 Phillips Driver from IPhone Liberation Kit. for ALL screws. Other drivers not at arms length away.

My Problem

I wanted to replace a hard drive to keep a late 2008 MacBook going. While at it, I increased ram from 2 to 4 GB.

My Fix

Extremely well. The most difficult part was setting up a Yosemite bootable thumb drive. Hardware removal/installation was simple because the IFixit guides were so clear. Repair took about 6 hours because of the need for a bootable source.

My Advice

Start by making sure that you have a reliable source for booting once your repairs are made.

My Problem

Hard drive was running sloooooow!!

My Fix

New hybrid 4TB hard drive was a breeze to fit, just need suction cups and a set of torx drivers.

My Advice

Watch some of the tutorials on how to take apart an iMac, these make the job an absolute breeze, just be extra careful with the 3 connections on the back of the screen.

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.
