Hi there,What cable do you mean from asus. I need that exact cable, thanks!
Hi Mark. I don’t know where that cable came from – it was laying around in my cable drawer. It has Asus written on it, so it must have come from some Asus PC. It is a narrow HDD or FDD ribbon, you can find it from other sources too. You need to cut it and replace at the original connectors by pushing into the clamps and securing with plastic tabs.
Perfect, well thanks for taking the time to respond! Have one nice 180c, trying to restore other one
