So i was installing a new hard drive and i pulled too hard on the cable i guess, and the whole port came with it. Then i dug myself a deeper hole by breaking a pin on the port when i tried to put it back in. Look at these pictures: First picture is the outlet:
Second picture is the sata spots i have, 4 but only came with 2 actual ports.
Here there are supposed to be 7 tabs, i broke one to make it 6.
Please Give me some tips on what i should do, i thought about soldering. If there is a sata splitter of some sort, if you could link me, Thanks alot - Andrew

What about sending your mobo in for a new one?
Get a cheap PCI or PCI-E SATA adapter card with two or more ports.
