mcbirds Posted December 7, 2010 Share Posted December 7, 2010 Hello folks, I've recently purchased a corsair force 120gb to install into my laptop and came into quite a bit of a conundrum. The 2.5' hard drive slot of my hp touchsmart tm2t has a tiny metallic ledge protruding in the upper left corner (drive connector facing up) and hits the metallic shell of the SSD where the regular drive's edge is slimmer. Obviously, removing the metallic casing of the drive would probably make it fit but voiding the warranty is out of the question and taking a dremel to either a brand new 250 dollars drive or the naked insides of my laptop isn't much of an option either. Does anyone have any experience with SSDs not fitting and possible ways to solve that problem? For instance, I reckon that a small adapter that could extend the slot forward by a quarter of an inch would pretty much solve the problem but I don't have the faintest clue as to where I could source something like that... Thanks Here's a picture of the problem: http://img718.imageshack.us/img718/6209/p1010015o0.jpg Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
