Question about Western Digital Computers & Internet
By the chip part, are you referring to the controller board. this is the printed circuit board the sends low level commands to the servo motor and the read write heads. as well, the issues will mean that the board has failed and you cannot get the drive to spin up at all, you will have to replace the controller with a donor drive., or you will have to actualy take the controller board off the drive and swap a good drive controller board for the bad one. to get the data off it again. possibly sacrificing the good drive to fix the bad one. make sure the same number of lba logical block addressing matches the chs # and the model number match as well. the drive should be identical and around same exact year. this will not always work, but you might get lucky. if not prepare for a 174 to 400 dollar recovery cost with a company like Rapid Data Recovery rapid-data-recovery.com they are a great recovery unit and helped mea few times. good luck with it. Please remember always have a backup drive eaven a usb external one touch backup is better then nothing and saves you thousands of dollars and your busniess eaven good luck and thanks for using fixya
