    What kind of tape should I use to make sure the ribbon cable stays? I was thinking of double sticky siding (folding) scotch tape. I also have masking tape and medical cloth tape.

    I'd use a strong glue, wouldn't take chances with tape

    If you really don't want that ribbon coming back out, I'd use Krazy Glue. That stuff is lethal when it comes to glues. I'd imagine hot glue would work too. Pretty much anything except elmer's school glue.

    hot glue is safe 4 mobo, plus it can be picked/peeled off later. if yo have to use tape use electrical.

    superglue may be overkill, i wouldnt want it near my mobo, that stuff is possibly corrosive. i wouldnt take the chance

    Yea super-glue is definently overkill..and I think that shit will react with the mobo so just use hot glue..that's probably the most common type or perhaps only type of glue you'll ever find around electrical components.
