Macbook Air not loading due to a failed SSD

This time we had an 11″ Macbook Air for repair. We don’t get these 11″ Macbook Air much much better performing and sturdier than 12″ Macbooks.

Customer out of nowhere got loading bar stuck halfway through. Even multiple restarts and shutdowns didn’t help to resolve the issue.

Macbook Air Repair – stuck on the loading bar

When he called us, we knew something is wrong with the SSD. So we gave him a quote for a repair over the phone.

Macbook Air Repair Process

Replaced Macbook SSD with a high-quality Crucial disk

When Macbook Air arrived for a Repair, we ran a quick test and SSD popped up like a sore thumb.

Luckily for the customer, the data was still accessible, although extremely slow to recover.

New SSD 500GB four times the size of the original 128gb SSD

We offered the customer a couple of sizes drives, asking him how much data he is planning to save on it. As his original disk was 128GB, he was very keen to upgrade to 500GB.

We used an extension board so that we can fit this fast SSD in the place of the original one. It worked perfectly and got this Macbook Air Repair done brilliantly.

Repaired, not Replaced!

We are committed to reducing e-waste in Australia. How we do it is by educating our customers on the reparability and longevity of their devices, as well as providing affordable Macbook Repairs here in Adelaide.
Although our best intentions and hard work, this is not an easy task. Customers must accept that cost of high-quality electronic repairs, is between a third and half of the price of a new device. However, with the current trend of planned obsolescence in electronic design, we see more and more Macbooks having shorter lifespans. To tackle that, while we do our repairs we target common planned obsolescence engineering design mistakes to ensure we extend the life expectancy of the Macbooks we repair. Check some of our Macbook Repair Cases to get an idea of the process.

That said, if we buy a new one or write it off via insurance, it does not guarantee that the new one will not meet the same fate as the older one pretty soon.
As matter of fact, quite often we see accidents reoccurring within less than 2-year gaps. If we can save 2000$ or even 1000$ today by repairing our faulty Macbook is brilliant. That’s an extra half Macbook cost ready to be spent on another one when the time comes or our need for performance increases.
When that time comes is up to us to buy a new one or keep pushing the one we have, but delaying it by a year or three is always a good starting point and saves another abandoned Macbook from polluting our one and only Planet.
