HP 2510p limitation on hard drive 1.8 inch Zif drive motherboard controller problem hard disk

I’m having a hard time installing new hard drive for this laptop so call HP compaq mini 2510p. Look like the hard drive they’re using is a ZIF drive 1.8 inch, it’s still a spindle drive not solid stage, but it’s a lot smaller, smaller than a normal 2.5 laptop hard drive. I got error message sometime and sometime no error message at all that tied to the hard drive cable connecting to the hard drive, I’ve already purchase additional drive and test and even new cable but same problem, I’ve come to a conclusion that the root cause was due bad motherboard controller, after numerous search on the internet and read a few forums people that had similar issue – So what I’m doing next is to USB drive to the store and boot operating system to use, instead of the hard drive. I could also get the dvd cd tray hard drive converter but nah that will force me to eliminate the dvd cd usage which I might need at a later date.
