Hard drive Self Test

I was wondering if the little black piece that connects the hard drive to the motherboard could get ruined. When i did a hard drive self test it failed saying "fail #1-07" so i bought a new hard drive and when i put it in, it says the same thing. is the little piece that connects the hard drive to the motherboard damageable?? and could it be the problem?

Check the New bought Hard drive piece maybe it was properly attached to the board. After that, format the hard drive before use. An unformatted hard drive may br manfunction.

If I may ask a dumb question, was the new drive formatted prior to running the test? A unformatted drive will fail.

Start taking your laptop apart piece by piece and test it after each removed component:
1. Remove the hard drive and test the laptop.
2. Remove the DVD drive and test the laptop.
3. Remove the wireless card and test the laptop.
4. Unplug the display panel from the motherboard/video card and test the laptop.
etc....
Continue taking it apart until you have only three major components connected: motherboard (with video card), processor, and memory. If you still experience the same problem, most likely it's bad motherboard.
By the way, before you start, try reconnecting the memory module. If you have two modules installed, try removing them one by one and test the laptop with each one separately
