My MacBook Pro Broke.
My mid 2012 MacBookPro sleeper sensor cable broke. The cable that connects to the hard drive. My laptop won’t boot up. It doesn’t recognize my hard drive.
I ordered several parts for upgrading cost me less than 150.00.
When I opened my MacBook Pro it shows file icon with a ? that constantly flashes. I knew what the problem was immediately.
I checked YouTube and it showed me what the issue was and I went online to order the parts to upgrade my laptop (including the screwdriver kits).
I opted to do it myself (DIY) than to take it into a shop or to Apple store because I knew it would cost me a lot of money. Second, I am home bound medically can’t go anywhere right now. Third, being here on WA taught me technology on how to build my website but also how to fix things that go wrong.
I figured it out that I can do it myself. All I need is the right parts and right tools and watch a simple YouTube video that shows the visual images on how to do it step by step. Last, I can’t afford to purchase a newer model besides everything’s is on my hard drive that I can’t access right now.
The products will take a few days to get to my home. For now, I have to contend with using my iPhone and iPad. I won’t be able to work on my site. My writing drafts are on my hard drive.
No, I did not back up my hard drive. I should have done that in the first place.
Oh well, lesson learned.
For now, I need to wait until I get that parts. Wish me luck to get them repaired myself. I am up to the challenge thanks to the lessons learned here on WA.
