I am new to this site but thought some may benefit from my experience with a fried HD.
2 months back I turned my system on and heard a sizzle. The system carried on until I got the notice of the HD either not there or not working. After inspection I saw a small burn mark on one of the components. I tried everywhere to get this repair but came up against the usual "oooh that will be 300-500 plus to repair/recover the info.
Eventually saw a website called PCB Solutions. The system asks for some details of the drive and some components on the bad HD to be entered onto their search system. Once all are entered it tells you if they have a replacement and its cost. For me this was $43 or 27.56. I sent off for this and 7 days later received the new PCB and a torx bit driver to install it.
Followed the instructions and now perfect again (although now as a spare drive in my new system.
Some may have heard of this site before but for those who haven't it is quick cheap and it worked for me. For anyone who needs this please see the link.http://www.onepcbsolution.com/maxtor-diamondmax-plus-9-sata-033.html I have no personal interest in this site but would recommend it.
