t43 2687-d3u bsod determined to be short in bridge connecting hdd to mobo now what?

2010-04-02, 8:32 AM

Greetings,

 

So I got the BSOD. Initially thought my hdd died. Purchased a new hdd, still no luck. Determined that the bridge connecting the hdd to the motherboard is loose, presumably from holding the laptop with only 1 hand on the right side of the mouse pad. Now trying to determine my cheapest option. 1 suggestion was to boot off of a external hard drive, but then I loose the portability or make it far more cumbersome.  Another suggestion was to replace the motherboard. Does anyone know if the motherboard in a 15.1inch is the same size and the motherboard in my 14.1inch? Any help/suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

 

Regards,

 

Ryan

or you can use the ultrabay as your main hdd compartment, with a ultrabay slim hdd adapter.
