Title:

"?" even after hard drive change

Text:

At first I think it is a bad SSD hard drive, so I purchase a new one.  After installing it, and put the old drive into a USB case, the old drive works like a charm on another mac using USB with which I have recover all the files.  The MacBook Air with the "?" issue still blinks.  I tried external hard drive, USB CD drive with snow leopard, and even wireless, with no luck.  In case of the wireless, I got it to log onto my wireless system, but that is the end of the entire deal.  No more next step.  Please advice.

Go tit working... finally.  It is a bad hard drive cable.  After I am able to swap a new cable, the old hard drive is working now.  Must have kinked the old one too much that I break it.
