SATA connector broken off m/b

    Yanked the cable and the pastic thing came off the pins that stick out from
    the m/b. Fixed it once before by bending the pins back and putting the plastic
    connector (that you plug the cable into) back over the top, but the second
    time it happened the pins snapped off.

    Is there a good chance of this being fixable by any computer servicer? The
    pins are gone so they'd have to solder some replacement pins onto the
    motherboard.

    Not quite, it was the *second* yank that did it ;-)

    If you have a spare pci slot, get a sata adapter card. Safer than having
    the mb fried attempting a tricky repair job.

    One good yank deserves another.

    Ah, you're nothing but a yanker.

    And other yank jokes at your expense. :)

    sure, If you can find one that does component-level repairs.

    It might be cheaper to use a PCI SATA card.


    Bye.

    The second time? You chose your nickname wisely.
