I've had an IdeaPad Y480 (2093) since 2012 which has slowed down and having problem since a year. It's going to go down anytime soon. I bought a Seagate SSHD (Hybrid SSD and HHD) that I realized is not compatible after buying. The reason is that the conneciton pins are straight where as the older HDD is a right-turn (90 degree) config to be pushed down on the board. I've searched hard on Amazon, NewEgg, etc. but haven't found a part for it. Lenovo's (and IBM's) support lines (what a abomination!) or knowledge base have nothing on this and are not helpful at all. The is one person (Matt) who wrote about how he changed the HDD but doesn't address the pin-compatibility issue at all.
Can someone help, please? Thank you!
