I am typing this post on my phone in the WordPress app so please forgive any spelling errors.
I have tried the Mac help section and even tried restoring it with a backup version. The problem is that the system doesn’t recognize my hard drive anymore. If I were in the U.S. I would take my computer to an Apple Store and get the Geniuses there to take a look at it. My AppleCare would probably take care of most of the replacement parts. However, the problem with working in Venezuela is that the one Applestore in town is staffed by people who were hired for their looks…and parts are not available.
Thankfully the tech guru at my school was able to point me to a great website for Mac parts. He told me that I can order a new hard drive and even install it myself! So I worse red the parts on Monday and spent the $50 to mail them here with FedEx so hopefully I can have it fixed by next Friday!
Have you ever had your primary computer die while you were traveling in a developing country? Have you ever installed your own hard drive before? Have any tips for me?
