Question about Maxtor (6L250R0) 250 GB Hard Drive
My Hardrive has no Bad sectors and never had a problem ... Until suddenly It refused to Power up. It seems like one of the switching transistors have blown up ... and need to be replaced on the PCB underneath the drive(Where we Plug in the IDE Cable & teh Power supply). The reason why I feel that is because the HDD seems to be spinning(very Slightly) in intervals every 5 seconds and then stops(While I Boot up the PC. Due to inefficient power supply the drive is now not recognized in the Bios. I may be wrong but would really think I do need a replacement as the 8MB buffer also used to have a hadware Malfunction as I get a BSOOD in windows stating a Problem and Physical Memory Dump ... and I have tried installing brand new RAM Modules in Single and Dual channel modes. Even Re-Installing teh OS ... no luck. Another Samsung Hardrive works perfectly on Both my OLD and New Ram Modules ... Same OS(Win-XP professional). I'm Now looking for that Board to solve my problems. Can you tell me How do I go about finding a replacement board. Thanking you
Best bet would be to look on ebay and buy a working used drive and swap the boards as these surface mount devices are hard to tell what they were when they go nuclear.
