Aspire 7 A715-72G SATA not connected

i_love_tazzusi_love_tazzus Member Posts: 17 Troubleshooter
Just installed a new M.2 SSD. Forgot to take off the SATA drive first, and now it's disconnected from the motherboard. How on Earth do I reconnect that? Looked at a few photo diagrams, and it's confusing.

    Hi,
    The HDD cable connector is under the black FFC cable(USB board) marked with red rectangle, remove the USB board cable from motherboard, then the HDD cable connector will be visible.

    Hi,
    It's always start a new thread so that many members will be reading your post, however, please post any pictures and model of your laptop in a new thread by clicking Ask a Question, you have to lift the white plastic lock and insert the cable, close the white tab to secure the cable, in the mean time I'll check for any videos, if I come across a suitable video, I will post.
