P51s sata HDD cable FRU dislodged

2018-03-07, 3:03 AM

I was replacing the stock SATA HDD on my Fiancé’s P51S (20JY) with a SATA SSD and my cable dislodged from the board. 

 

Im at a loss as to how to fix this if I even can. 

 

Any suggestions?

It is hard to know what happened without a picture.

I will add a picture as soon as I can Best way to describe it is that the connection on the main board separated. 

 

Are the contacts of the cable soldered to the main board or board or do they make contact by touch while held in place with adhesive?
