Changing my EARLY 2011 logic board for a LATE 2011 with 2.8GHZ
If I need to change my 13" MacBook Pro Early 2011 logic board (it has a i5 2.3 GHz CPU) with a Late 2011 logic board (with a i5 2.8 GHz). Will it work ?
Thanks a ton for any input on that matter! Regards, Guillaume
Thanks for your answer !
I want to change my Logic board because my laptop started to have a battery issue.
Let me explain :
When I plug the MagSafe adapter in there is no light (green or orange) on the connector and my mac doesn't detect any current. It's not the "not charging" syndrome displaying in the top right corner of the screen under OS-X.
It's no &&^&^$^ current at all :/
And as you may now, with these models we just can't plug the MagSafe adapter in and hope it charges even if there is not battery in it at all like with any other laptop ...
So I've swapped the battery with a compatible one (same model same year), I've reset the SMC and all to no avail.
I've discussed the matter with a friend well versed in micro electronics who said to me: "Even if you change the DC board (the little one the mag safe is connected to) it won't change anything it's your motherboard that is too old".
I'm running out of options here, so before ordering a logic board I'll take the one from the similar model MacBook as my wife has and test it.
By the way, I knew there is a core i7 2.7 GHz for that model (my wife has it actually). I was referring to this one in my question but i made a typo error.
