    A MacBook Pro is a normal laptop.

    My daughter's (a Mac user) husband DJ's with a PC laptop. I suspect as it's cheaper to replace when it regularly has beer spilt over it.

    Only the other day at work I had a 2015 27" 2TB FD iMac that had been running slow and beach balling for some time. It was only brought in when it finally failed to boot. The HD had failed, the 128GB...

    Based upon the info supplied it's likely, if economically viable, you will need a replacement logic board.

    When you clean up a logic board with a stiff anti static brush and IPA, some will run...

    Initially speak to Apple. If they confirm you have a hardware fault they may recommend an AASP Amsys collect, repair and return. They use a courier. As far as I'm aware all AASP's have closed their...

    I haven't opened up a PB G4 for a long time, so can't give precise instructions. Remove the base, disconnect all wiring from the display, then remove the display hinge screws and remove. With the...

    The only OWC in-line thermal sensor I've ever seen is a hardware device that is added in line with the iMac's hard drive / SSD power connector when a non Apple drive is fitted. It adds the thermal...

    Getting back to the hard drive issue, the drive is likely OK. The worst I've seen after previously replacing the logic board after GPU issues is some software corruption due to previous crashes,...

    I use in a service environment both an Apple adapter, USB-C to RGB, USB3 and power pass through, and a non Apple adapter USB-C to HDMI, USB3 and power pass through. Those or similar would suit your...

    It was the 2011 15" models that had the GPU issue, it didn't apply to the OP's 13". Either way, it's still likely to be BER.

    Unless the original Apple SSD has previously been replaced by an M2 SSD with adapter it will not be an M2 SSD. As above, OWC sell a suitable adapter that works well, I have 2.

    I would not attempt to open up your MBA, it is completely different from earlier models and can easily be damaged. Other than following Nicks advice above, you will likely have to visit an ARS or...

    Here in the UK I find in my work that many users with failed GPU's on the 2011 15" MBP's will still have them repaired. The only option we have is to use a repairer who replaces the 6970M, but the 2...

    I only drop into this forum every now and then. If I had seen this thread at its start I would have recommended replacing the IPD flex cable, which you eventually found fixed your issue. I find the...

    Going back to your first post, re 'little bit of corrosion on the wire' and 'didn't look too bad'. The 'wire' must be the IPD flex cable, and I only find the cables contacts show corrosion when there...

    Every 6970M GPU failure I've seen has effected both the iMac's display and external video. The GPU is a BGA surface mount device soldered to the video card PCB, and the video card is socketed to the...

    Just out of interest, was the charger a MagSafe, MagSafe 2 or USB-C, and if USB-C, was it an Apple or third party cable?

    I have cut through cables on MagSafe and MagSafe 2 in the past, making up a...

    Your camera was introduced in 2007, and its CameraWindow software last updated at the end of 2017. It's unpredictable wether Canon will update their software for 64 bit compatibility, and if so when....

    The keycaps on the 2017 MBA are similar to previous models. They use a cantilever mechanism that locates into clips under the keycap. They are not like the horrible MBP butterfly mechanism keys. When...

    I have installed Crucial SATA 6gbs SSD's multiple times in both the 2011 MBP 13" and 15" with no issues, that is all we fit at work. I can't speak for other brands. I have seen MBP 2011's running ok...

    As far as I'm aware Power Photo's is currently the only way.
  21. It's a long time since I worked on that display,...

    It's a long time since I worked on that display, but the information above is likely correct. Without a suitable Mac, OS and screen software you are unfortunately lost.

    There is only one hard drive cable, used in both the early and late 2011 MBP 15". It functions normally with 5400rpm, 7200rpm drives and SSD's. The HD cable on your MBP is usually very reliable...

    There is one USB Lion installer that Apple used to supply with some kit, a custom thin white device, and it could be bought separately. The one I sometimes use at work surprisingly wasn't affected by...

    You can only probe the logic board end of the MagSafe board cable. Disconnect the black plug, flip it over to show the barbs of the pins through the side of the connector, and probe the pins with a...
