    My story after 2 months!!!

    So guys, like many others I also wanted to upgrade my system and went out bought caddy from Amazon for $15 bucks, a 120GB SSD from crucial and did the upgrade.

    It worked all good until last week, got a call from home that there are strange sounds coming from the laptop as the HDD is spinning really hard and it is so hot too...

    Came back home and the keyboard and the hard drive on the cady didnt work. I opened the system and found this line vertically coming up from the caddy and when I opened the caddy i saw all this..

    Not sure what happened.. Now I dont know what to do..

    Currently, using the external keyboard and mouse and want to know if someone can help me disable the default keyboard on the system as well.

    What is all that sticky stuff. Did you glue the drive in place?
    An HDD never spins hard. An HDD has only one speed off or spinning at the stock speed.
    Only fans can spin slower or faster.

    Did you try google? What is the point of disabling the keyboard anyway?

    Maybe the cheap caddy didnt have proper ventilation?
    I use MCE's caddy and never had such problem...

    It seems like the drive melted inside the caddy.
