I have an Acer Aspire E5-576G laptop. Upon opening the chasis i found that there are 2 unoccupied connectors, one i already know is for the led for versions with backlit keyboard, what's the other for?
Here's a picture:

None of them contain anything regarding the interior of the laptop. That was the first place i checked before posting here.

Definitely a ribbon cable that would connect to a device not included in your version of the laptop, perhaps a fingerprint scanner used for biometric scanning

Thanks for your response, but i have already figured that out the instance i saw the connector for the first time. The question is what is supposed to be connected to it, i am hoping someone with a version of that laptop, with that whatever device built in, can tell me.
