Not All Peripheral Connections Are Working
Hello — I've had this Mac mini since 2011 when I bought it brand new. We had a bad thunderstorm one day, and I believe that's when the computer started acting up. I took it to able and it was literally 5 days out of Apple Care and they refused to look at it.
I ran Apple Diagnostics and everything has a passing score.
I've tried resetting PRAM and SMC and still no luck. I can try them again if you think that should do the trick.
I recently upgraded my system drive to an SSD from IFIXIT, and installed macOS Sierra.
I went in System Information and here are the things it does not detect:
- No Bluetooth found
- No Card Reader found
- (Diagnostics passes)
- No Ethernet Card found
- USB is detected, but only two of the four usb ports work. All four draw power, like I can charge my phone on the ports that don't have data going through them, but I can't plug an external HDD or mouse in that port. It won't work, but power works.
You guys seem like experts here — can someone please help me?
Is this a good question?
