Question about Computers & Internet
LED would indicate activity previously.Now only power LED functioning. Is this a sign my HD is about to walk out? I can hear the HD at boot up making the same usual sounds.
The LED lights are usually connected separately to your mainboard, on the JFP1 pins. You could check your mainboard manual (if you have one) to see where it is on the mainboard. If the seatools say your HDD is good, you could unwire the JFP1 and try to connect a battery to the LED to see wether it still works. If it doesn't, it's probably one of the wires thats broken. You should, though, first check what voltage your LED is. If it's 0.5 and your battery is 1.5 you'll destroy the LED...
Hope this helps you solve the problem!
PS: don't go messing around in your mainboard without an antistatic wriststrap, or you might break it.
