SATA cable cannot be removed.

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I cannot remove a SATA cable from my motherboard, it just wont release itself when I press down on the SATA cable clip. It seems to be stuck ...I have no problem removing the other SATA cable, so it's not something I'm doing wrong.

Anyone have any ideas?

Cheers,


Mehmet

1) eat a sensu bean (haha jk)
2) try getting a small THIN screw driver and see if you can PRY that clip back towards the cable to see if you can release it

sometimes it just takes brute force. but be careful not the break the motherboard, the sata cable can be replaced easily, board- not so easily.
