I have a Pavilion a6838f with a 500gb SATA hdd. I also have a a6838f where the motherboard was fried by a nearby lightning strike. Can anyone tell me how to transplant the hdd from the dead machine into the other as a second hdd. I only find one wire with two SATA power connectors both of which are in use (CD drive and HDD). Thanks.
Solved! Go to Solution.

That PSU (5188-2625) shown here http://www.power-on.com/ea350u.html is supposed to have 4 Sata power leads, 2 on each cable leg. See PDF file, PF-PI http://www.power-on.com/images/mechanical/ea350u.p
If you poke around, and trace the leads, you might find those other Sata power plugs.
BTW, Frank meant molex to Sata.
