1)There are a few screws on the bottom panel, a couple of them are slightly different size so remember where those go.
2)Once open disconnect the battery.
3)There is a retaining bar on one side of the drive, undo the screws in the bar and remove.
4)You should be able to remove the HD and disconnect the SATA cable.
5)Remove the screws on the old HD and place them on the new one, then reverse the procedure to re-assemble. Its not to hard.

I believe changing the hard drive in your model is exactly the same as this video http://youtu.be/-HS6ELFwD3A. Hopefully that helps you out.

If this is the 2009 model with the DVD/CD drive, then you can add up to 8GB of RAM and a much larger hard drive. I have seen drives up to 1.5 TB, and they were not expensive (just over $100). Just search for an online retailer (or go to a local Apple service center) that specializes in upgrades for older MacBooks. You may need a special set of tools, and you can also buy a kit that will allow you to use your old hard drive as an external drive (but make sure you back everything up BEFORE you start to swap drives).

Do the patterns of distortion change as you are twisting and bending the laptop body? If so, you're dealing with a logic board issue. Probably your GPU is not soldered properly anymore. Go to the Genius bar first, if they can't help you can try a self repair or send it to a third party place. There is a free Macbook Air Repair guide that will show you how to do it. iPad Repair

How long will a Mac Pro last?


No one can truly answer this question. It depends on how well you take care of it. The hard drive will go out first. I have two MacBooks that I have upgraded to solid state drives and they still run great.

The hard drive is difficult to replace in a 17" Pro, but relatively easy in the 15". I just did one of each. If you use a laptop cooling platform, the computer will probably last longer.

How to upgrade my macbook pro to Yosemite


Apple has made this feature free, and fairly simple. You should first make sure you have a backup of your hard drive on an external drive (easiest to complete with the TimeMachine feature of your Macbook Pro).

  • Open the App Store app and select the Featured or Top Charts tab. You can search for Yosemite, although Top Charts will usually list it as #1 in the Top Free apps.

  • Click on the Download button for Yosemite wherever it appears (either in the search list, or in Top Charts). Follow the prompts.

  • Depending on your connection speed and the specs of your macbook pro, the installation will take one to four hours.
    • Of course, you will have to have an Apple ID to download anything from the App Store.
    • If you don't have an Apple ID and don't know how to get one, please ask another question on FIXYA.

I am running OS X 10.4.11 and would like to upgrade my operating system?


Please provide more information.
To what would you like to upgrade it?

Since OSX Mavericks was just announced, I'm going to assume that's what you're wanting to upgrade to.

Not all Macs can run Mavericks.

Mavericks Capable Macs

Mavericks, like its predecessor Mountain Lion, requires one of the following Macs with at least 2 GB of RAM and 8 GB of available hard drive space:
  • iMac (Mid 2007 or newer)
  • MacBook (Late 2008 Aluminum, or Early 2009 or newer)
  • MacBook Air (Late 2008 or newer)
  • MacBook Pro (Mid/Late 2007 or newer)
  • Mac mini (Early 2009 or newer)
  • Mac Pro (Early 2008 or newer)
  • Xserve (Early 2009)

If your Mac isn't one of the ones listed above, you won't be able to upgrade.

If you have an iMac, MacBook, MacBook Pro, or Mac mini model that was originally released in Early/Mid 2006, the latest version of Mac OS X your system supports is Snow Leopard.

How much memory can you install onto a macbook I would like to upgrade to 1TB


I do not believe you can upgrade to 1TB on a macbook.It depends on the model macbook you have (how old it is). If it is a 2009-2010 model you can put in 2 4G memory modules for a maximum of 8 MG on the latest macbook pros (2009 -2010). 2008 models take 4 MG max. Here is a good link to look at from Apple which I believe will give you just the answers you are looking for: http://support.apple.com/kb/ht1270.
http://www.product-reviews.net/2010/03/26/apple-macbook-pro-1tb-hard-drive-upgrade/ This is an interesting article about a company who will upgrade your MAC harddrive to 1TB. However the maximum memory for newest model Macbooks is, as I said above 8 MB.

Good luck! If you find this helpful please vote or comment!

Hard Drive not mounting


Check the jumper on each hard-drive.

My guess is that the WD drive has the jumper in the "correct" position, for mounting inside an external case, while the other drives have their jumper set to an "incorrect" position.

Set the jumper to MA(ster), not to SL(ave), nor to C(able)S(elect).
