MacBook heatsink repair tech needed in Los Angeles - Recommendations?
posted by chambers to Computers & Internet (6 answers total)
I have a good friend in Los Angeles who has a 17" 2006 MacBook Pro. He needs the heat sink re-seated with new thermal paste.
He just had a hard drive replacement and his processor is now running at 94-100c, everything else is in the 48c-60c range. SMC Fan Control has helped everything but the main processor.
I want to send him to a good Apple certified tech that could do the job quickly (within a couple hours) and reliably. I'd rather not go to the Apple store, as he needs his laptop for work, and the turnaround time is too long, not to mention the costly 'just swap the logic board' attitude of most Apple store repairs.
