    Yep. If you've not destroyed anything on the connectors themselves, changing the ribbons will be fine.

    The worst thing about my HP and It is proberly the same for yours is the fact if you want to clean out the cooler in it from time to time as you should you have to gut the whole damned thing....

    Thankfully I have very easy access to that part on my MB-85 Limited Edition
