How to revive a MacBook Air
About 2 years ago, my Mac Book Air start to give some problems. It was then already 2 years old and I was in doubt what to do: whether to buy a new one or to try to fix the one I had. Since 2 years was too short for me to get rid of this expensive piece of hardware, I tried to fix the Mac on my own which to my own surprise worked out very well, except for one USB port that didn't connect anymore. At that time, I realized that my Mac was living on borrowed time, so I waited until it finally died.. Which happened this summer. I diagnosed my 4 year old Mac and.. Was it dead forever? No so fast, by exclusion I tried to find out what the problem was and ultimately I decided that the only reason why my Mac didn't work anymore was a faulty logic board, time to go to the iFixIt website.. :-)
It went as smoothly as it ever could be! I followed all the instructions on the website and after a surgery of one hour I finally heard the familiar boot tone. Boy, I was happy! Thank you iFixIt, you made my day!
