5 - 30 minutos
The hard drive had a mechanical failure, thankfully after I had transferred everything to a new machine.
The repair went smoothly. With the guide, it was so easy to get in and get the computer repaired. The guide was spot on! I think it took me less than 30 minutes from start to finish.
Don't be afraid to repair an out-of-warranty computer yourself. So much cheaper and with the repair guides, it's a breeze!
