Solved!

How can I replace the SATA socket on a Pavilion 15-cs0053cl

HP Recommended
Pavilion 15-cs0053cl
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I've opened my 2 years old laptop to replace the hard drive (was giving problems, like stalling) with an SSD. But then I discovered that the SATA socket on the motherboard was broken (the top lock was not locking well). As soon as I moved the hard drive the flat cabled came out of the connector and the plastic fell out.  Any attempts to put this back and turn on the laptop failed.

 

Is there anyway to replace this socket?

 

Thanks

Hi:

 

According to the service manual, there is a M.2 slot that supports NVMe SSD's which are much faster than SATA drives.

 

I would forget fixing the SATA port and install a M.2 NVMe drive.   I doubt it can be done without replacing the motherboard.

Below is the link to the crucial memory/SSD report for your notebook.

 

https://www.crucial.com/compatible-upgrade-for/hP---Compaq/pavilion-15-cs0053cl

 

If you scroll down the page, they have compatible M.2 SSD's for sale.

 

The P5 NVMe drives have faster read/write speeds than the P2's.

 

Just make sure that your notebook has the M.2 socket present now that you have it taken apart.

Thank you very much!! I'm going to try that.  The laptop does have the M.2 socket.

Now to return the SATA SSD, good that I ordered from Amazon.

You're very welcome.

 

You'll love the blazing performance of a M2 NVMe drive.

 

See if you can use the HP cloud recovery tool to create a bootable USB recovery drive that will reinstall W10, the drivers and the software that originally came with your notebook.

 

Here is an info link for how to use the cloud recovery tool.

In just received and installed Crucial P1 500GB 3D NAND NVMe

However, it doesn't seem like the system sees it, and running diskpart from the rescue disk doesn't see it either.

Is there sometime special that I need to do, e.g. update the BIOS?

 

Thanks

Hi:

 

According to the manual, the drive should have just worked.

 

I don't believe that you need to update the BIOS, and since no OS is installed, you wouldn't be able to as far as I am aware.

 

I recommend that you start a new post on this problem as I have no idea what could be wrong.

 

I assume you have the drive firmly seated in the M.2 slot and screwed down with the retaining screw?

You're very welcome.

 

Hopefully someone knows what the problem is, because I sure don't.

You prompt me to re-check my work.  I removed and reinserted the SSD and it looks just fine now. 

Using EasyUS Todo backup/restore tool to clone the internal HD (plugged into the USB) onto the SSD.

Crossing fingers that it will boot. still going!

 

Again thank you very much for your help!

Anytime.

 

Glad to have been of assistance.

 

That is great news.

 

I was wondering why that drive didn't work when in all respects it should have.

 

Enjoy your new NVMe SSD!
