Snapped vertical sync cable & Incorrect HD temp cable
Was in the process of changing my iMac internal HD and accidentally snapped the vertical sync cable. Is it possible to change this by myself?
I've also noticed that my HD temp cable is not compatible with the WD hardrive that I recently purchased. The HD temp cable seems to allow for 4 slots while my HD requires 8 slots.
Anyways I've tried to still OS X El Capitan but upon turning on my IMac (whilst holding down alt/control) i'm greeted with a white screen, which shows the mouse cursor but nothing else. Could this be from the snapped vertical sync cable?
The IMac is very loud and got very hot is this due to missing HD Temp cable?
Whats strange is that before trying to install OS X El Capitan I was intially greeted with a folder with a question mark.
Desperate for some help. Trying to set up this computer for my mother ha.
Is this a good question?
