Question about Acer Aspire L100 PC Desktop
I need a replacement power ribbon and connector between motherboard and dvd,my power ribbon has pulled out of the plug dvd end.
thanks if you can help
Well this is hard to explain........the ribbon slips into a socket on the board pluged into the dvd drive. the board is held on by 2 screws. the way the ribbon plugs into the board is really shaky and it disconnects really easy with the slightest pull when removing the disc assembly. the best way to manage plugging back in is to pull the drive assembly out of the case an lay it to one side still plugged in. remove the dvd plug board with the 2 screws. this makes it easier to plug the ribbon back in. the place where the ribbon slides in has a plastic locking type very small mechanism that flips out to unlock the ribbon. the first time i removed the drives, the ribbon and the plastic piece fell apart and was very difficult to figure out how it worked. basically the plastic piece snaps into the deep side of the port with the 2 little tabs on it towards the inlet side. when placed back in proper it swivels up to allow the ribbon to be pushed back in then flips down to lock the ribbon under tension to maintain the connection. then place the dvd plug in board in its relative position. lay the drive assemly back in then hold it just far enough out to plug the board back in and replace the screws (although i am sure the screws are not really neccesry....lol).

It helps to know what to ask for....
Is it the ribbon cable (see below)
Or the 4 pin molex plug? (see below)
Or a SATA cable? (see below)
Or an eSATA cable (see below)
Or the sata Power cable? (see acer aspire L100 - af6f207.gif>
Then you can go on the internet and find and purchase the right cable you need replaced.
