My MacBook stopped charging and I went to "the genius bar" where they told me that Apple considers my computer to be "vintage" and they no longer fix them. They did, however, tell me that I probably just needed a new magsafe board.
I checked in NYC and California for repair quotes and no one would touch it for less than $200. I had already looked up the part on your website and saw that it was only $30. Hmmm . . .
I took a really deep breath and read your repair guide many times and then ordered the part. I was so scared and nervous, and told all my friends that if I could do this, I would be on the moon with happiness.
I took my time and was very careful. It was so easy! In less than an hour my computer was fixed. Sorry to have not taken any pictures, but I was too nervous.
OMG!!! You helped me push through my fears and I did it! Thank you!
I know very little about repairs in general and NOTHING about repairing a computer. My advice? Breathe. Take your time.
Have a beverage and ponder life before beginning. You can do it!
