Question about Maxtor / DiamondMax 10 / 80GB / 7200 / 8MB / ATA-133 / OEM / RoHS Compliant / with CA Des (890552605880) Hard Drive
Hi i have 2 Maxtor diamond max 10 16mb cache and i plugged them into a sata power splitter as my psu only had 1 it has destroyed a chip on the green plate underneath close to the connector for the power. Can this be replaced? thanks kind regards Paul.
Unless you can find the matching chip and are good at soldering these small parts, it can be replaced.
Typically, I would suggest looking for busted harddisks (of the same model) and if their board was still good, just do a direct swap. I did this for a Fireball model HDisk.
Or if their board is busted, you can get the chip from them and, like I said earlier regarding soldering, solder it onto your Hard disks. This is considering that the only part busted was this chip.

since you have been connecting another hard drive and plugging the leads in/out
One bad lead can cause a computer to continue on a cycle or to shutdown or fail to detect your 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
i would also suggest you buy another PSU power supply unit preferably a heavy duty one with plenty of wattage when you add more devices ram,hard drives,cd/dvd recorders it drains more power from the power supply unit placing more strain on your computers PSU
and are not faulty or just replace them there probably old and faulty
