New SSD installed in computer
My problem is this:
Installed an OWC SSD into my mid 09 MacBook Pro. At first it was working great, then after watching some video's, screen went black, after the cursor just spun and spun.
Sometimes after going black I'd be able to move the cursor sometimes not. After a force shutdown, and restart, Then I get the circle with the line, or the question mark. I put back the old drive, worked perfectly.
It was suggested to change the hard drive cable, which I did, and surprised how easy it was, booted up the computer, all excited, and after using after a couple hours watching video from same site (mypoints.com) the same thing happened. So I reinstalled old drive, and booted up the new drive from an enclosure, but not a 3.0 (not sure if that matters) and it worked flawlessly the rest of the day... Now I have the old drive in, and I'll know if it works like is used to, as I'm sure it will... I really don't want to have to just keep the external attached to use. please help... I'm also thinking about bringing it in.
I also just noticed something else. when the old drive gets the cursor and kind of freezes, if i wait it out, it just kind of catches up and plays where the SSD I get that black screen…
