My Problem

My laptop's hard drive went out. Fortunately, I had maintained an external clone of the internal hard drive. I just needed to determine the replacement drive to purchase, the tools and the specific procedures for successfully switching hard drives and getting back to work as usual on my laptop.

My Fix

The replacement of the hard drive went perfectly, thanks to the full range of tips and information at iFixit.com. The sequential installation photos, the info on specific tools needed, as well as the reasonably priced hardware and tools makes iFixit a one-stop source for this and so many other repairs.
