MacBook Pro 13" Unibody Mid 2009 Hard Drive Cable Replacement

20 minutes


My Problem

My Mac started to show some random problems, like :

- Rainbow Cursor

- ReportCrash daemon taking 100% CPU

- Terminal command not working (Invalid argument)

- Apps couldn't be opened

- Finder crashed

My Fix

I followed the guide and it was pretty straight forward.

The least easy part was to connect the diode because it is quite small but it went well.

Cable is not folded, you will have to do it yourself but it's quite easy, just follow the lines.

My Mac is now working very well !

My Advice

Love your Mac, be gentle and take your time.
