If there is a bios chip on the board, heat it to remove it and change it with the bios chip on the new board.

Hi. I have a Seagate FC remote hard drive. The power light has started flashing and the drive is no longer recognised or readable by my computer. Do you have any suggestions?

If you don't hear any other weird sounds coming from the drive, you need to replace the logic board on the hard drive. Find an identical hard drive part on eBay and replace the logic board on the hard drive and everything will be working 100%.
Good luck!

My PS3 will read regular movies but will not read Blu-ray Movies...

Your Blu Ray lens is defective I am afraid, I had exactly the same problem. You will need either a new lens or a new drive. If you replace the drive make sure the keep your old logic board as this is needed by the PS3 motherboard to enable the replacement drive to work, even if the replacement has a logic board on it already.

Hope this helps

My ipod classic has a sad face on it and it won't trun on..can you help me

Listen to the iPod - if you don't hear the hard drive spin properly and evently when it starts up you may have a hard drive issue. If it doesn't spin at all, you may have a logic board issue? Here is a ipod repair guide on how to dismantle and iPod classic.

My external hard drive (HD) simply stopped working, should be no disk reading/ writing problems, the power is getting to the HD, but not to the drive as it does not spin, so from my own personal knowledge...

Sorry, but no spin, no win! Your hard drive enclosure has encountered a sever knock to cause headslap in the drive. You can rescue the data by purchasing a usb drive data reader kit. You take the drive out of the enclosure, attach the cables and plug it into a usb 2 port. You should be able to read the data no problem. Make sure you connect all cables to the drive, and it should be problem free for you.

Hard drive not spinning up

Hi you would have to buy a replacement drive that works that is the same as the one you zapped and change over the board to see if you did any other damage to the drive motor or send it to a recovery person which would probably be cheaper in the long run.
