Great instructions - I am not an expert, and was able to change the hard drive cable in 25 minutes without issues. Thanks!

Followed these instructions and completed the changeover, probably took half hour. The final step with the ZIF connector I was unable to see exactly how it worked but managed with a bit of trial and error and things are now working. Perhaps a closer photo or perhaps a diagram as to how the connector works? But all in all things worked. Thanks

Is there any way to fix failed graphics card on MacBook Pro 2011. At this stage it’s looking like I have to trash the thing?
