Why is my MacBook turning off when I hold it?

So I have upgraded my Macbook installing 2 SSD, one in the Superdrive place and the other one where the HD was.

After this upgrade everything was fine, but since 2 months I am having the issue that always when I take the laptop from the bottom (more exactly the left/middle side) it's suddenly turning off. Because of this my old SSD stop working, the computer doesn't recognise it anymore and I had to change it.

The laptop is working totally fine when I use it in a flat surface, therefore I think it could be a gap between connexions but I've checked them and everything seems ok.

I have no idea what I am pressing that makes the laptop turns off, I've search on internet but I only found a person who had the same problem and he could only fix it sending it to apple.

Anything could be helpful for me.

Thanks in advance!

Replace the HD/IR cable with a new one from a 2012 13" model.

I have the same problem now. I took it into the Apple Store and they told me that an SSD should not be installed in a MacBook Pro 13" Mid 2012 as they are not compatible although iFixit told me it was. Apple told me that this is likely my problem. I am now worried that if I move my laptop the wrong way the computer will restart and I will lose my data.
