Problems after replacing hard drive

Hi all,

I recently replaced the hard drive in my MacBook with this: 1 TB SSD

It worked well for the first couple days (maybe weeks? Time is blurring together these days), but now I’m running into a variety of issues. It’s been freezing fairly often - sometimes with black bars, sometimes with colorful dots in some areas of the screen, sometimes with just the screen I was on. Other times, it will crash and reboot. Sometimes it will crash and start making 3 beeps.

I’ve tried reseating/resetting all that I can and I’m at a loss. The problems don’t seem to line up with each other (from my research anyway) and I can’t figure out what do with this new hard drive. I could try switching to the old drive, but I’ve saving that as a last resort.

Have any of you encountered this situation? Any advice would be helpful. Thanks in advance!

This is the drive I used. I didn't replace the cable, but will do so next. Thank you!


That drive is comparable and should work.


@nfezz - Every time its the cable! Fixes them 99% of the time. It should honestly be considered a preventative repair on these 2012 machines.


Hi all. I replaced the hard drive cable and I’m still running into the same issues. Any other ideas before I try switching back to the old hard drive?
