i have a 2.5" hard drive with a bad control board, i can't access it with the usb connection, would i be able to access it if i connect it to my computer main board by using the sata connection?

I take it you are talking about an external drive and the USB connection does not work. You want to open the case and connect the drive directly. If that is the situation, then yes it will work.
