Title:

HDD not recognized with new HD cable?

Text:

Hello,
 
I have a MBP 13" 2010 where the old HDD was somewhat damaged. It could only boot up in safe mode and was very slow then. I bought a new HDD and HD cable.
 
Installed the new HD cable and HDD, but when I booted up from Disk Utility it couldn't detect any HDD. Tried changing the HDD to the old HDD, but now it couldn't find the old HDD either and it couldn't even boot up in safe mode.
 
So I don't really know what the problem could be?
 
== Update ==
 
Have contacted the HDD service provider, but no response so far.
 
Can it be anything else than than the HDD or the cable? What if I have broken something else than the cable or HDD, could that maybe be the problem? Because I found this thing laying on my table as you can see in picture 1 and 2.

== Update ==
 
Don't know how to insert pictures without "answering"...
 
But I'm pretty sure the lock is from the screen cable (or so I was told). It's the cable right here (the lower left corner in the last picture of my last "answer".

It happened when I pulled the cover off, because some glue was stuck to the cable and cover. Pretty sure it's that, but not sure. But if it the screen cable, could it still be the problem?
 
== Update ==
 
No one got any ideas for a solution?
