Answer to "MacBook Pro over heating after upgrading to OWC Aura 480 GB SSD?"Make sure that your SSD is properly seated. When you insert the SSD blade into the slot, the gold connector shouldn’t be exposed. If you can see a good portion of the gold connector, the heat from the connector will dissipate into the MacBook Air. This is because the connector is a metal and the electrical conduction generates heat, warming up the metal. Because the connector is exposed in the air, there is no heat sink to absorb the extra heat. This extra heat will not properly escape the MacBook Air or MacBook Pro and will cause overheating. Below is an image of a properly seated Aura Pro X SSD Blade in a MacBook Air. There is minor exposure of the gold connector. This picture uses the included Thermal Pad. The Mac Pro uses a heat sink which can be purchased separately. WARNING Very carefully try to push the SSD in further. If you push too hard, you risk damaging your Aura Pro X or your MacBook Pro or MacBook Air. It might help to remove the SSD first and then push it back in. Here is a photo of the...
Answer to "Why is my keyboard/trackpad not working?"Here’s a short term solution that worked for me if your keyboard stops functioning entirely. I have a MacBook Pro 2011 13” using an Apple Bluetooth Wireless Keyboard (MC184LL/A). Buy the Apple Bluetooth Wireless Keyboard and place it directly over the MacBook Pro keyboard when using the laptop. Because the Apple Bluetooth Keyboard is slightly raised and the MacBook Pro keyboard is slightly sunken, the keyboard can rest above the keys without interference. This may not work for all models and there are several different types of keyboards from Apple. Important: You should bring your laptop into the store first and test out the keyboards, since the new Magic Keyboard is less elevated than the older Apple Bluetooth Wireless Keyboard (MC184LL/A). I am using the Apple Bluetooth Wireless Keyboard (MC184LL/A). Obviously, you can’t close the lid with an external keyboard, and it makes travel more difficult. But, it does allow you to utilize the trackpad and laptop in a fashion similar to how it was designed.
