|Maxtor harddrive's pcb got fried because of a short in the power molar...
Bought replacement pcb for same model and same code.
Drive now spins up but during bios does "click" "click" "click" (with pauses inbetween).
bios screen display seems to detect that it's a harddrive:
primary master: HDD
primary slave: HDD
secondary master: CDROM
secondary slave: HDD
Then BIOS goes to do the S.M.A.R.T detecting and displays something for primary master HDD, but then a long long pause and then bios stops booting with an error:
primary slave HDD failure.
If I ignore the error and boot into windows, windows doesn't see the HDD.
