Question about Seagate (ST3160827AS) 160 GB Hard Drive
A couple days ago I installed a new 500 GB HD in my PC. The power cable wasn't too good and it made a short-circuit in the 160GB HD, with smoke included. It only fried the contacts and one diode, making the board un-usable. I bought a new identic and functional HD and replaced the boards. The disk works perfectly (spins without any noise) but BIOS doesn't recognize it (takes some time searching) and when WinXP loading screen appears, my PC hangs up. Any help, please? :)
Are the logic board model numbers the same? How about year and batch manufature? check on that.
