    Take a close look at the remainder of the connector to see if has any kind of manufacturer's name or symbol. If you are lucky you may be able to remove any remnants of the old locking tab and replace it with a carefully removed locking tab from a new connector. If you can Identify the connector you may be able to purchase a few new ones from the manufacturer's stocking distributor in your country.

    By the way, you posted your computer hardware problem in this web site's Do It Yourself (Not Computer-Related) forum. I will ask a moderator to move it to a more appropriate forum for you.

    EDIT: You most likely would not be able to purchase just the locking tab from Dell or anyone else.
