Hello guys i have a Dell Inspiron N5110. My cdrom sata connector was ripped a while ago. Yesterday i decided to fix it because i wanted to buy a ssd and connect my hdd to cdrom socket. But i realized that 2 pins on sata board side was shorted together because their trace was exposed. it was the 1 and 2 number pins on the signal part of sata the A+ and GND. I am using this laptop with no problem with that short. The real question is what happens if I solder the female connector and connect my hdd to that connector ? Will it kill the hdd ? I would be happy to hear your answers.
