Default SSD card mistake - 03-29-2014, 05:57 PM

Hi there I wanted to change my SSD and by mistake (because the cards look the same) I bought a new SSD mSata and not mini pci-e for my dell inspiron mini 910. When I connected it the laptop didn't power on. Is there any way to make it work with this card?

Thank you

Nope. And you want to be careful about "MiniPCIe" too - the correct card has a MiniPCIe form but the wiring is custom to the Mini 9 and is PATA, not SATA. If the SSD you buy doesn't claim that it is specifically for the Dell Mini 9/Inspiron 910, then it won't work.
