SATA Connector Not Working Even After Replacement
I have a 2012 MBP with a I7 and 8GB of RAM.
When I first bought it, it was running with a 2TB HDD but later on, i replaced it with a 240GB SSD. It worked really well for the first few months but after 5 months if stopped working at all.
After some research I figured this could be related to me not having switched on TRIM on my MacBook, this was backed up by the fact that even when i tried to read the drive externally (while booting in recovery mode) I saw that every byte of the drive was full.
Due to that I got tried putting in my original hard drive in my laptop. At this point i suspect the SATA cable failed, a common problem on a 2012 Macbook Pro’s.
I got a replacement one and I installed it but the laptop still doesn’t read any of the drives. It won’t even recognize my 240GB SSD and while it will see my Mac’s OS-X boot on my HDD (running Yosemite) it won’t boot into it and keeps giving me a circle with a cross going through it.
Any help would be very much appreciated
