My Problem

When my Macbook hard drive failed and could not be repaired, my son the certified geek recommended an upgrade to a solid state drive to improve the performance.

My Problem

My mac would get 1/2 way through the startup and crash out. Then start again only to crash out again. Disk utility said everything was a ok.

My Fix

Replaced the hd cable and everything worked great. Took the time to swap out the old 500gb hard drive for a new ssd. Now the computer works about twice as fast. . . .

My Problem

They have a problem with all MBP mid 2009 about the EFI firmware and cable that can do highest speed at 1.5Ghz. So I ordered and change them myslef. Apple doesn't even responsible for this. This probably my last Apple computer, now I use PC and very happy.

My Fix

It's easy. I just watched youtube for that. . . .

My Advice

Took advantage of the repair to replace the 500GB HDD by a 1TB Samsung 840 EVO.
