Hard drive ribbon cable to chip adhesive?

I tried to pull the connector off the motherboard and the ribbon cable pulled off the connector. Can I glue it back together? What kind of glue?

Thank you. I'll replace the ribbon cable.


If you'll give us the last three figures of your serial number, we can identify your machine and get you to the correct part.

Glue is not conductive. You need to have it repaired with solder... that is not a DIY job. Soldering computer components takes special tools, solder and lots & lots of practice.

If a local professional shop can not help you you'll have to replace the cable & connector.
