broken SATA connector on motherboard
The computer is an Acer x1200 (-B1601-A) desktop, running Vista Home Premium.
The connector on the motherboard where the SATA hard drive cable connects is broken.
Trying to find out is there is a fix or an alternate way around this problem, besides replacing the motherboard.
Can another connector be bought? Is there another SATA hard drive connector on the motherboard that can be used, possibly one for an additional hard drive? Could an SATA interface card be used, and bypass
the motherboard connector entirely?
Any help is greatly appreciated! Thank you!
