I have exactly the same problem with my MacBook (as I bought it in such a condition). I bought the screen from eBay. Its quite easy to fix if you follow the instructions on iFixit. You should consider buying only display, not the whole top assembly, as the prices really different. If your top cover is OK, you don't need to buy it, its possible just to change ...

I can't be sure, but I think that the first step to solve the problem is to check the connection of speakers to motherboard. Are they connected properly? Disassemble the laptop and check all the loops and wires.

From iMac (Mid 2010: Memory specifications): The iMac (Late 2010) computers have four SDRAM slots in the bottom of the computer and come with at least 4 GB DDR3 SDRAM installed as two 2GB DIMMs into two slots. The maximum amount of RAM you can install in your computer is 16 GB (a 4 GB SO-DIMM in each slot). You can use any Small-Outline ...

Make sure you go to the Lantronix site to ensure your printer is listed. It doesn't work with the Canon MF4800 series. But they say it works with the Canon MF9000 series but I think that series already supports AirPrint natively since the MF6000 and MF8000 series do.

Yes, it does. See this article on ifixit.com for instance.

My Acer monitor lost the red color before. I found no answer to the problem. One day I wiggled the cable and the red color came back. The same problem and remedy repeated many time. Today I tried to move the cable to different directions without result. I guess I have exhausted the possible directions. But if you have not tried this, it may work for you. ...

If you're certain the drive is known to be good and working and that the cable you're using is also in good condition then the answer is no: there isn't anything you can do to fix a broken controller yourself. You'll need to take it to an authorized Apple Repair Center. These things are usually solved with main board swaps as it's all, more or less, ...

The red light in your audio out jack indicates that it is active. That is why you do not hear anything on the speakers. Your analog/digital switch in the port is stuck -- the red light is the digital audio signal. Try to plug the headphone in, this time wiggling it from side to side while it's plugged in. Alternatively try cleaning the audio plug: Try ...

I've had similar experiences when stacking two MacBooks just the right way. I think it's the magnets being triggered, and the computer thinking it's been closed.

Suggested problem tracing /and repair) steps (after each test the performances). Vacuum clean the inside of your Mac to improve cooling. Google and Install gfxCardStatus, Leave on Dynamic Switching. From there it will Monitor and Alert you to what apps switch you to the Nvidia Graphic Card. Also open the Activity monitor - Energy tab, where you can see ...

If you can find the exact replacement part, then an electronic technician can replace it for you. Finding the exact component isn't trivial, though. Having Apple repair it is likely your best bet. Next best would be replacing the motherboard. In the meantime, you can find decent USB video adaptors for the mac that should meet your needs for less than the ...

While I'm sure it IS possible to just replace the thunderbolt port it would be labor intensive and a specialized procedure. So yes, this is a replace the entire logic board procedure. Apple DOES offer a flat rate repair service for out of warranty Macs though. They talk about it a little bit in their KB article - AppleCare Direct Mail-In Repair Serivce - ...

For that Mac, the thunderbolt port is a part of the motherboard (on the left, 3rd from the top): So unless you're able to source the parts, perform a package exchange that clearly is a machine solder and then test things, the most economical repair would be to exchange change the whole motherboard. As long as there is no physical damage inside, this would ...

Understanding the process of events, is sometimes 1/2 of the way to a solution. When you turn on the power to a Mac, it activates the BootROM firmware. BootROM, which is part of the computer’s hardware, has two primary responsibilities: It initializes system hardware and it selects an operating system to run. Two BootROM components ...

You need a USB drive with a bootable OS/installer on it to test this... This is probably a long shot but, open the machine and disconnect the SATA cable that connects to your optical drive. Leave the cable disconnected and attempt to boot up the machine via USB. If everything works try connecting the SATA cable for the optical drive again and retest. My ...

I believe the issue to be that the controller is still SATA III for the optical bay, yet the connector is a SATA II type, as is the cable. So if you try and place a SATA III enabled drive in the optical bay, it will try and negotiate at SATA III speed (6G). This creates an issue as the cable is not setup for this and the crosstalk, and very low SNR at that ...

Generally all changes you made yourself are not liked at Apple. They cancel your guarantee. But I don't think I will be an issue other than that. They will probably just replace it. I wouldn't tell them though, that you made these changes, because depending on how nice the person you get to repair your MacBook is, he'll maybe just ignore that you modified ...

It is Apple's discretion if the modification is the cause of the problem, in which case… The Plan does not apply to: […] (ii) Damage caused by (a) a product that is not the Covered Equipment, Furthermore, Apple doesn't cover modified equipment anyway… (iii) Covered Equipment with a serial number that has been altered, defaced or removed, ...

Firstly, it does not seem to really matter whether you use the Sata II or III port. For most usages you won't see the difference, cf this post for details: http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/280002-32-sata-sata-practical-difference. Given that the disk shows up fine via a USB interface it means that it's not at fault so it could actually be due to the ...
