Take it off cable select first!!!!!! Archer was 1000000% right on this one. Cable select is old school uber legacy, and creates nothing but problems on current chipsets. Then, update BIOS and if that doesn't give you access to more than 137 GB of the drive, you will have to make a minor registry edit. There's instructions at M$'s site, just google it.

Dude that sucks. Maybe try attatching a wire between where the pin is supposed to connect and the power connecter's corresponding hole. And then see if it will get power. This is a temporary idea to get your files, i don't think that you will be able to reattatch the pin though.

The easiest way to repair it is to solder it back on. This might be hard to do in such a small area, so you might want to try cutting off the plastic underneath it to get the iron in there.
