Replacing the hard drive cable did not fix the MacBook Air
1 - 2 horas
The hard drive failed and worked only briefly after the Applestore replaced it. They said it could be a faulty cable, but I opted for a refund instead. I decided to replace the cable myself.
Apart from getting two spudgers (-an accidental click) the cable came quickly and the IFixIt guide made it very easy. Unfortunately, even with the new cable the machine does not work (no access to the hard drive at all). Could be a bad hard drive, but I suppose more likely, some other hardware problem. I decided to replace the MacBook Air (after 3 1/2 years with the old one)
It was worth a try but did not solve my problem.
