I have an "acer aspire 5733" and I dismantled it to clean it out. After I tried to reassemble it, I noticed that the clip connecting the optical drive board to the motherboard was broken, and couldn't be connected properly for the system to acknowledge that there is indeed an optical drive connected to the system (even though it still opened and closed).

I tried to attach a make-shift clip with hard plastic and insulator tape, but still wouldn't connect properly. I tried looking for parts but I cannot find any broken clips to replace it with. Do you guys have any suggestions of what I can do?

Thanks!

You mean this?

If yes just buy the caddie itself, shouldn't be that expensive.
