Hello!

My acer aspire 5810TG isn't able to find any bootable devices.

The HDD wouldn't show up in as a connected drive in bios or when I try and install windows it wouldn't show up at all.

If I try connecting a drive using USB it shows up in bios.

I've already disassembled the whole laptop and the board with the sata cable looks fine to me, I also tried cleaning the cable using rubbing alcohol and tried resetting CMOS but neither worked.

What else should I try and what other diagnostics can I do before I order and replace that part of the laptop?
