|I have a PCB question from this post in the "Wanted" forum... http://www.deadharddrive.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=876
My hard drive is Western Digital WD2500JS-75NCB1.
Details of my drive:
DATE: 09 OCT 2005
PCB sticker: 2061-701335-800 AG XW 2T19 F6QP 6 0003140 6143
and printed on the PCB is: 2060-701335-003 REV B
The question is:
|I found a PCB that was from the same model, but the old PCB was
2060-701335-003 REV B and the new PCB is 2060-701335-005 REV A
replacing the PCB resulted in it being recognized by the BIOS, but the OS could not read.
Would replacing the ROM (U12) chip make these PCB's compatible?
Also, the new hard drive had a problem with formatting, it gets to 62% and never finishes. I assume that is a drive issue and not a PCB issue so the PCB should still be good?
