MacBook Pro (Late 2011) and hard drive issues.
The title of this post is a bit misleading. The hard drive is actually fine. I'm trying to rule out if it's the logic board or the flex cable. Does anyone know of any ways to test the flex cable? The logic board needed replacing and I've replaced it, but I'm not certain if the flex cable is also bad or if I got a faulty replacement logic board.
I've ordered a replacement flex cable and am waiting for it to arrive, but I'd like to try and verify that it's bad in the meantime, just so I can sleep a little better at night
I was thinking of trying to find a pinout for the cable (821-1226-A) and trying to use an ohm meter to check the continuity. The square plug has very small leads! Has anyone done this? I'm having trouble finding the pinouts.
