If your the owner of an A1278 13″ Macbook Pro you may find your computer running slow for absolutely no reason!? even if you have never even used the laptop. During production there was quite a large batch of these laptops that received a bad hard drive cable. However, dont stress! This problem is easily fixed.
The cable failure might have one of the following symptoms that look like a “regular” hard drive failure or OS corruption:
– The laptop boots to a flashing folder with a question mark.
– The Apple logo appears on the screen but the OS doesn’t boot any further.
– It gets stuck at a white screen and doesn’t boot any further.
– General use of the machine seems to run really slow or laggy
If you find yourself victim to this problem, don’t hesitate to give us a call!
