"Do I need to remove the logic board to replace the hard drive cable?"에 답변Hello! It sounds like your HDD is failing. I would recommend running programs like Alsoft's Disk Warrior to determine the heath of your file directory. If disk warrior can repair your directory and get you back to normal, that is perfect. If disk warrior can not, well, bummer. It seems like a simple hard drive replacement should do the trick! To answer your question, Yes , you do have to remove the logic board to replace the hard drive cable. You can do it without removing your power supply as long as you unplug the power supply cable from the back of the logic board. I will provide you with some links to different material below! Good Luck!!

"My monitor has bad horizontal flickering"에 답변Hi! I know it's kind of late but had you tried hooking it up to an external monitor and seeing if that fixed it? To me, your symptoms say GPU or Display.
