Successfully changed my logic board on my MBP early 2011, but now.....
My MBP early 2011 suffered of graphic card failure and therefore I had to replace the whole Logic Board.
Since I have regarded ifixit as a bible for DIY works I have decided to purchase a logic board from this site and have it sent all the way to India, where I am temporary living.
The repair went pretty smoothly since I have already changed other components inside my mac, like keyboard, HD, secondary HD and so on.
However since I have swapped the faulty IO board with the new one, my battery stop working for some reason.
It shows that it is not available and I am currently going through all the tricks in the book to resume its functionality. Unfortunately nothing has moved forward ever since and I am just growing more and more frustrated.
I have sent some emails to the customer service here, but considering that we are under Xmas time, I would expect to receive some answers only after the festivities.
Personally I don't want to spend more money into it, since the battery has been replaced no more than 6/8 months ago and I don't want to dare to think that the new IO board that I have just installed is faulty somewhere.
If any of you savvies out there got any advice to give, please come forth since I have to deliver some important jobs during these days and my machine doesn't respond as it should be.
Nothing more than what has been describe on that section.
Just believe in yourself and take every action with time and no rush !
