After HD replaced with SSD video looks like really bad VGA / whitedout
Late 2009 imac Intel EMC 2308 replaced Western D hard drive (500GB) with 1TB Crucial SSD.
I just bought the kit and followed directions for the HDD to SSD replacement. When I booted up with the new drive I did the hold option key and booted from a USB. From the start the display looked weird. Sort of pixelated and missing stuff, and whited out. I thought it might be a missing driver … so went ahead with the install. Nothing changed.
I did make sure that all the cables were attached to the display properly before putting everything back together. I was careful on the removal and putting everything back.
The display seemed to be making weird oval shapes right about where the hard drive was / SSD was replaced. I did put the foam on the HD. There was no problem with the fan starting as the new thermal sensor was installed properly.
Has anyone experienced this? I would appreciate any advice. - Thank you
This is what it looks like
