    Hey guys

    I'm refurbing 2009 mbp13 and came across a problem. After replacing the battery and redoing to thermal paste, my airport no longer works. It's not my first rodeo, but I checked and re-checked my connections inside.

    I've also reset the PRAM and SMC controller, run in safe mode.

    The error that shows is "No Hardware Installed."

    Help!

    I'd try those resets again...but it's probably no coincidence that you were inside the MBP recently.
