A Fan with 0.5Amp will do, since it will not overload the circuit, and only draw 0.5A while 0.66A is available. It might not have enough power to provide sufficient air flow, thus it might run more, but that is only important if you run constantly at elevated Temperatures. Check your mac mini model number to make sure it fits, since the one you are showing ...

I recently fixed a water damaged (actually it was baby saliva) smartphone that had stopped charging when plugged in. Just like you, I was quoted a significant fraction of the original purchase price to even look at it, so figured there had to be a better way. So a squirt of contact lubricant (WD40 in my case) went in the USB port. That was a few months ...

Considering you're likely out of warranty anyway, depending on where you live, you could use a third-party repair shop. I've had mixed results with repair shops, but I have found one where I live which I would now trust to repair my MBP. In my case, this is a place that only deals in refurbished equipment. Unlike another 3rd party Mac shop whose main ...

If you have any warranty from Apple on the MB you should know that once your computer is "marked" with water damage the warranty voids. They even have a white thingy inside all the MB's that gets yellow when it touches any liquid - if they open the laptop and it's yellow - there goes your warranty. I would say the best way is to get a new battery and ...

You're lucky to have gotten off so lightly. Apple will quote high prices for water damaged items as they can't predict the severity of the damage. Replace the battery and your MacBook should be fine. I did a battery replacement a couple of years back for a friend who'd spilled whiskey over his trackpad. The whiskey had penetrated the battery causing the same ...

I would say that you would need to go ahead and use the Genius Bar option to repair your computer. My reasoning is that water damage can cause errors in strange ways that, upon first glance, seem to be straight forward, but are in fact impossible to properly diagnose without professional diagnostic equipment. For example, in your case, I doubt that the ...

I just got a new mac and was sitting at home vare footed when suddenly I feel a pain in my arm. Took me a second to realize I was being shocked! I read somewhere tgat if you lift your bare footed legs off the ground it fixes the issue. It worked for me.

There is a wonderful site "ifixit" that has answers to that question. The camera cable socket is very fragile. Do not apply any upward force to this socket, as it may break off the logic board. Pull the camera cable parallel to the face of the logic board. If you are lucky, you did not damaged the socket but just the cable. Replace the cable to ...

I have the same exact computer with the same problem. I turned on the activity monitor and found that Google Drive was sucking up a TON of CPU. I really don't know why since I having done anything with my Google Drive in weeks. I quit Google Drive and immediately my CPU usage dropped significantly. The CPU temp also dropped from 185°f at rest to 128°F at ...

There's a whole website and even a class-action lawsuit about this issue here: https://people.cam.cornell.edu/~zc227/extras/early2011mbp_graphics.html

Yes, it will work. The only thing you need to understand is that logic board is a determinative component in a MacBook and all the other parts (like flash drive, Wi-Fi module, etc.) just connected to it. But all of them are completely changeable. So if you got two MacBook Air 11" 2011 you can interchange their parts in any order you want. Just don't ...

No. it's not possible to differentiate between different products of Apple just by their MAC address. You can, however, lookup hundreds of MAC addresses very conveniently - simply paste a list of MAC addresses and it will spit out the manufacturers.

I arrived at this question hoping to find a definitive answer myself but it seems like there are so many factors which affect the answer of how long an SSD lasts - the answer is not simple. Although I could not find information on the specific type of SSD used by Apple (in my Macbook Pro say), I was able to find some of the key factors. Thought it would be ...

If I understand correctly your question is about whether having matched RAM modules is important. Matched RAM modules allow the motherboard to use the modules in dual channel mode, making more bandwidth available. But as far as I know it is better to have more RAM in single channel than less RAM in dual channel. If you are going for a non-matching module, ...

Crucial RAM will almost certainly work with the existing. Their configurator is pretty good at getting exactly the right RAM for the machine.

I had this problem fixed by Apple. Phone support claimed they could only help me with software problems. I didn't try to get through to the Customer Relations. Instead I tried visiting another Apple Store, where they were happy to fix the problem within warranty. This is a costly repair to pay yourself, as the whole "logic board" has to be replaced. ...
