hardware issue 2102 SSD not detected

2018-08-21, 18:57 PM

Hey Guys, 

I ran into a problem today. I changed the SSD in my P52S to another one. Restarted my the computer an started reinstalling Win10. During partitioning I could not remove any of the existing partitions. Furthermore it showed many 0,00 size partition. In total there were around 8 to see in the manager. I quit the installation and rebooted. The SSD is not shown in the BIOS. And the computer shows after the lenovo boot manager the error message 2102 with the drive. 
During replacing the drive I did not first removed the cable. I removed the tray with the drive while the cable was connected in the controller. The tray sat in its holder very tight and it got free from it abrupt with a yank. During this the cable got riped of the controller on the board. After the error message I inspected the controller and saw the top pins on one side are bend up. I tried to catch it on this pictures.

I could not find more unusual on the slot. 

I need advice on this situation.

Thank you in advance

That's not good.  Very few shops can repair or replace that sort of socket.  Unless you can find one, you are looking at a board replacement.  Sorry.

I have only seen it called a pinch connector.  The best site for finding plugs, connectors and chips is Mouser.com.  They have an online catalog.  The same style connector is used for lots of functions - not only disks.

I had another idea. Do you think I can extend the WWAN port with a cable to the 2,5" tray to use a 2280 m.2 SSD? I was looking around and found this extender adapter.

https://www.amazon.com/M-2-NGFF-Adapter-FFC-Cable/dp/B01C26SML8/ref=sr_1_4?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1535032411&sr=1-4&keywords=m.2+extension

This one isn't specified for pcie though but if I find one do you think it would work?

Hello,

 

I am not 100% certain, but this looks like the page for ordering those types of cables from Mouser's web site:  https://www.mouser.com/Wire-Cable/FFC-FPC-Jumper-Cables/_/N-ad930

 

They call them Flexible Flat Cables (FFCs) or Flexible Printed Circuit (FPC) cables.

 

Regards,
