Today I will show how to remove a stuck DVD or CD disc from a MacBook Pro laptop.
In this example I’m removing it from a 13-inch MacBook Pro (Mid 2012) but you should be able to use this guide for any other 13″, 15″ or 17″ MacBook Pro. All disassembly steps should be very similar.
On Apple computers you will not find the eject pin hole which is present on most PC laptops. If a DVD or CD got stuck in the optical drive, you will have to open up the laptop case, remove the optical drive and take it apart (partially).
In this guide I explain how to disassemble HP Envy 15T-AE100 laptop.
This will be a long teardown process with many screws and internal components removed. As always, be organized and keep track of removed screws.

In this guide I show how to replace failed trackpad on a MacBook Air 13-inch or 11-inch laptop.
In my case the trackpad started working erratically. The cursor was jumping all over the screen and moving on its own even if the trackpad wasn’t touched.
TIP: if your trackpad stopped clicking, check the battery. It’s likely the battery is swollen and blocking the trackpad from moving freely. If the trackpad clicks properly with the battery removed, you’ll have to replace the battery.
Today I’ll be replacing cracked screen on a 13-inch MacBook Air. This laptop was dropped and the screen got messed up. The left side of the screen still displays normally but the right side shows only bleeding colors.

We’ll be removing some internal components and screws so be organized, make notes. Keep track of the screws.

I received this laptop with the following problem description: It turns on and chimes but has no video and no backlight. Video still works on the external monitor connected via Thunderbolt or HDMI ports.
