my dad needs some help if u know anything about Hard drives :D?
bought a brand new seagate barracude 500gb ntfs formatted, full to the brink with data, was connected through USB 2 to computer and during the switching off computer was dropped about 2 foot to the ground. It is now not spinning and when connected from USb and external power the powersupply blinks but doesnt when the harddrive isnt connected. Any suggestions on how to fix it? I am intending to buy another HD and try to swap the circuit boards any advice how? and what to look for ?
also if there is any other ways to recover my info without buying a new hard drive any ideas how to?
Mclovins dad lol.
