Better than buying a new laptop! Needed #000 not #00
Il Mio Problema
I had spilled water on my keyboard and ruin some keys - it would've cost more to pay the geniuses to fix it than a new laptop. I fixed it myself for far less.
La Mia Riparazione
Not difficult at all, just detailed and a little time-consuming. I did it while boyfriend watched a football game. Directions and pictures were easy to follow. I also replaced the trackpad and battery, and cleaned the innards (dusty) while I was at it. Now my laptop works like new again :-)
Il Mio Consiglio
I used the kitchen counter as a workspace so I wouldn't be standing and moving around on carpet (static) while working. Follow instructions carefully and use shot glasses or small cups/bowls to hold the screws in order as you take them out so you can easily put them back.
I needed a #000 bit instead of the #00 in step 41.
Make sure you have the screw at the bottom edge of trackpad in step 41 - TEST the trackpad for clickability BEFORE replacing the lower cover. You can adjust the trackpad screw to improve trackpad clicking.
