Uncanny ability to blow stuff up, to bull rush in with out reading instructions.
I need a guide/link(PLEASE)MBP A1278,2.3Mhz Early 2011 battery replacement, more specifically is there anything special I need to do like "hold a button" when rebooting with the new one? I just want to make sure I'm doing it right and there is no "how to replace the battery procedure MBP A1278 13inch Early 2011" .
I know how to swap out a battery but want to make sure I do it correctly so as the MBP see's it as a new battery and resets the cycle count ETC(fully charges first time). So you know where I'm at, I am reassembling a used MBP2011 putting in my good MBP2011 battery(USED)then putting my brand new battery 2011MBP battery in the reassembly unit. I know there are guides here just can't find one(no site Nav)on proper procedure for this on MBP 2011 Early, as the only guide they have here is for a 17 inch(I assume there all the same)still no specific 1 telling me "HOW to reset cycle counter", ETC.
You'll get an ATTA BOY for a timely response :)
i lol @ the spudger !
Should be fine Guillaume, things to note are: The serial number will give the old info of the old main board. Also the CPU cooler my be different, on 1 I noticed the cooler has 2 fans on the 2.3Mhz it has 1. Assuming you have both cases in front of you, I don't see to much of an issue.
I would advise taking the memory out sooner then the last step, as while your trying to maneuver everything around it seems the sticks could get in one's way or even worse break off the retaining tabs for the memory.
