So I had a problem few days ago. My MacBook was freezing all the time without any obvious reason. Googled for some time and figured out that HD cable was acting funny. So I bought a new one, but my new one came with no brackets. Tried to replace it and broke this little cable
I'm not really sure why but I decided to give it a try and booted it as it is. MacBook runs fine so far. I understand that it needs to be replace and all but can anyone tell me what that cable for and what consequences I can face?
