Macbook pro 2010 not booting CMD R not working either
Hi, hoping someone can help.
I’ve got a 15″ 2010 Macbook pro. I was having a few glitch issues with applications not loading which later became to an erratic booting and random shutting off and restarting of the mac. I thought this was an issue with the OS becoming corrupted so I was looking to reinstall this off a USB installer I had previously created.
The issue I have is that CMD R is not working (or any other key chain commands on the boot cycle) and skipped straight to booting. That was until a week after the initial issue when the system got stuck at 90% of loading. Most recently it has started flashing the question mark folder icon indicating the HD is not recognised.
I have purchased a replacement Hard Drive to see if this would enable a CMD R, this didn’t recognise or allow the Macbook to boot into recovery. I have also purchased and replaced the hard drive cable as a fault find in case I damaged this swapping hard drives (due to the question mark folder icon).
Whilst CMD R isn’t working, the caps lock light does turn on and off and the key chain was working when it previously loaded straight to the OS. This leads me to think the keyboard is absolutely fine.
Can anyone suggest any other fault fixes or is this likely to be linked to a logic board failure?
