This is my first post of many reads here, any replies for this are greatly appreciated.. Dunno anyone in person who would even have a clue on this topic;
*to fill you in-*
So I'm asked if a laptop is repairable if you spill a drink and it crashes -I informed him that theres a good chance as long as you dont keep trying to power it up \ leave it unplugged\batteried.. I get there & opened\checked the lap top, luckily most of the soda spilled on the keyboard and the key tray caught most of the spill.. in fact, all of the overhead spill - start to wonder where the liquid even made it then realize it probably got the hard drive...
sure enough, a tiny (but obviously effective) amount made its way between the legs of a prom on the board above the actual disks (forgive me for lack more technical term if there are any) and well obviously had some minor burn scars on the far end of it.. i let it dry under a heat lamp over night to be sure it wasnt repairable, gave it a shot this morning and still get "No bootable drive found" message
So on to my question- in ditch effort to save data on the drives which are undoubtably fine minus the board, i was curious if any of you bleeping geniuses have had any success\failure in swapping board between two harddisks.. - Data recover specialists would remove the only arm and leg hes got to repair this sucker (300+g) and the recovery of it is crucial if possible.. Im not expecting a miracle here, just wondering whether or not the board is interswappable (i figured the only limitation it may have aside brand name is disk size, but i have no real idea)
keep on breaking 'em so i can keep fixing 'em
Break bread - getcha BHO spread.
