Question about Computers & Internet
By mistake my daughter plugged in a wrong adapter into the iomega seagate barracuda 7200.11 500gb, the light still works but where the adapter was a higher voltage it has blown something. Is there a miniature internal fuse I can change or will I have to swap the circuit board with the switch attached, I'm a quick learner and have had apart but not opened the actual case on the discs thou. If do need to swap what is the circuit board model number and name where would I buy or is the problem more serious and I've lost all files.
Well it is bad as to what has happend 80% chance that it has blown the internal board i have no idea of the make or model sorry 20% chance that it has blown the little board on the hard drive its self again can be replaced but its not simple and i don't know what hard drive is used in this model there is 2 ways to go from here u can try to replace the board then the other (you will see small black mark on one board meaning usaly its the board or what i would do is disconect the hard drive from the case and use it as a second hard drive for the computer ( its a 3.5 ince hard drive thats in the external) hope this helps and if you want anymore info then let me know
