Black screen after upgrading to SSD
after upgrading my MBP 13" 2012 (non-retina), I can't boot the device properly anymore.
First of all, I didn't copy the contents of my HDD to my SSD before because I thought it would be possible to recover my OS via TimeMachine after the upgrade is done (I did make a backup on an external disk indeed)
I used the following adapter kit: http://www.amazon.de/SATA-Adapter-Apple-...
and the tutorial from ifixit.com (the SSD is from SanDisk but the seller said it's 100% compatible with Apple Hardware)
after following all the steps i tried to start my MacBook and indeed i heard the startup sound, but the display screen stays black... I even have issues with the background lightning, as it seemed to work for the first time (I saw some bright lights at the bottom of the display) but now even the lightning is gone.
here are some pics of my MBP, with the main focus on the display cable:
back in the days I had some problems with one of the 4 feet (the upper right one) of the case bc it was loose.. so I fixed the problem with superglue... everything went fine but today, when I opened the case to insert the SSD I realised that the upper corner of the case was somehow "sticky", so the case couldn't be opened easily... i tried to remove the cable carefully... Well i guess, not carefully enough bc now my MacBook shows a black screen :( i think that due to the superglue the display cable was kinda attached to the case (look at the pictures to see what i mean, you can still see some remains on the cable itself) ...
so my question is... is it really the display cable? or could there be anything else? maybe i've forgotten to put something back in its right place?? how can i fix this issue? i tried putting an external display on (via HDMI & thunderbolt adapter), but the second screen doesn't show anything neither.. :/
I hope somebody here can help me bc as a student I REALLY REALLY need my MBP to work again :(
All I wanted was to get my MBP fast again, after Yosemite everything went awfully slowly with my HDD ... but now I can't even do anything anymore :/
thanks in advance guys :)
Is this a good question?
