Question about Hitachi HTS542525K9SA00 250 GB SATA Hard Drive
Hi, my name is Remco, I've got a problem with my Hitachi travelstar HTS542525k9SA00 hard drive. The BIOS doesn't recognize it anymore. The platters still spin though when I connect it (so no crashed read/write heads). How much chance do i have to repair it by replacing the pcb with a replacement?
thanks in advance
If you can get an exact replacement controller even down to the firmware level, there's about a 50% chance it will work. No one can guarantee anything at this point but if the data is valuable enough to you, that's probably your cheapest option. Otherwise, you'll be looking at about $1000 or more for a data recovery specialist to recover data from the drive.

One bad lead can cause a computer to continue on a cycle or to shutdown or fail to detect/ boot up a computer hard drive
Test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions,IDE,SATA
the leads from your ((motherboard to your hard drive)) make sure they have a secure connection and are not faulty or just replace them there probably old and faulty
make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty even the electrical extensions or just replace them they are probably old and faulty a computer needs its connections to have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error
hope this will help
