Well, I am coming today to this forum to ask for some help. Quite recently my MacBook Pro 2012 (now 3-4 year old) starts up with a question marked folder. I did some research on the matter and came back with the conclusion it was either the hard drive or the hard drive cable. So, I looked in the MacBook disk repair section and didn't see a hard drive listed. So I though damn not sure which it could be. So I brought a new cable, tried that and had no success. Then I brought a new hard drive, (https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/aw/d/B0...hard+drive&dpPl=1&dpID=41pRoaOmysL&ref=plSrch) please can you help me. I need this laptop up and running for my school work. God forbid that I have to use paper and pen for a few more weeks. --- Post Merged, Jan 23, 2017 --- New addition to this problem. I will have to now reorder another hard drive cable because I've just snapped my new one. Or I will have to take it to a "specialist" who said he cad do it for £90 which I thought was an absurd price. But now I'm not so sure. 'Sigh'
