2.5" SSD install- slot but no connection?

2020-08-01, 6:09 AM
Hello, I just got an IdeaPad 15" 5 with a 4500u, in part because every impression I had was that it had space for an additional SSD drive. After buying a WD Blue and popping it in, I realized there was absolutely no way to interface the connections from the drive to the motherboard. Despite a perfect fit otherwise. Am I missing something here??

If the cable and HDD bracket were not included in the box along with the Laptop, then you need the following.

 

 

FRU/Part No.         Description

 

5C10S30033        HDD CABLE L 81YK           https://dxccc.com/products/5c10s30033-gs557-nbx0001s200-for-lenovo-ideapad-5-15-are05-hdd-cable

 

5B40S21974        HDD Bracket L 81YK         I cannot find one online

 

Hopefully you have the bracket already, but if not you can sometimes get the parts from Lenovo's Encompass Parts site, but they show both out of stock.  

 

Note the DCXX link is just one site I found with cable, but they may be other sites as well if you search using the FRU/PN:

 

 

Best of luck,
