johnny111 Member Posts: 1 New User

Hi I have an acer aspireR3-131T to which I was going to add a 500gb ssd .

On opening the back there was no ssd installed or a ribbon to connect all as per the picture.

Can someone please advise me on the next step to rectify

    You have an emmc boot chip soldered to the mainboard. Accordingly, to add a 2.5" SSD, you need a SSD/HDD cable (Google part number 50.G0YN1.004) to connect the SSD to the mainboard HDD/SSD socket as shown below.
