View Full Version : G74-SX Broke second HD connector on MB

In trying to install a SSD as the primary drive and move my factory HD to the second slot I managed to break off the little black plastic latch that secures the ribbon to the motherboard. Even worse, it seems to have snapped one of the little metal "poles" that surround the connector. I put the stock drive back in and everything seems okay other than I can't connect a second drive.

Am I permanently hosed from connecting a second drive or is there some other way I might secure the ribbon to the connector (tape, glue, something)?

Many TIAs!
