    hey everyone i have a fujitsu amilo m6500 laptop and fitted a hitachi hard drive.

    I was a little ham fisted and the connector inside got bent back (but managed to straighten it back) ant broke a pin on the hdd.

    http://www.hitachigst.com/hdd/support/7k60/7k60eis.htm this link shows the connection and pin d in the 4 cluster is missing.

    so if any1 can help my questions are, is the drive now useless as i think it is as if i move drive in laptop i can hear it whirring but stops again and it wont detect it in bios and will the connector in mobo be ok or damaged
