Question about Computers & Internet
My hard drive will not come on. Is there any way to still retirve the information that is on it and transfer it to a new hard drive or copy to a CD
if your HD don't had a head crash you will have a chance to copy your data to a new HD.
You need exactly the same disk with exactly the same controll PCA revision. Take a look at ebay or a second hand dealer.
In case you get one, built the new contoll PCA into your dead HD.
Be very carfull about foil cables and connectors between the HD case and the PCA.
I had a similar problem with a blown motor driver chip in a Maxtor drive and changed the PCA. All worked fine and I could save the data.
Good luck !
There are also companies who are specialized for data recovery but the are very expensive.
