Hi and welcome Leon4256, 
 
The short answer to your question is "NO", but it's worth mentioning that overheating can cause damage to your other components, including the HDD. Laptop internal components are in tight spaces and usually if a motherboard/CPU is overheating, chances are the overall internal temperatures are high as well. If you give a bit more details about how did that happen, what temperatures exactly were reached and how are you monitoring them, than I can be more precise.  Keep in mind that hard disk temperatures higher than 45°C lead to higher failure rates, for the motherboards in general - Below 90c is generally considered safe temp, though the cooler it is - the better. 
 
My advice to you is - make a backup of your data and check the status of your drive via the manufacturer utility (or a third party software), than post the SMART results here. Then we'll be able to see what max temperature has the drive reached and will be able to determine if any actions should be taken. 
 
Waiting for your response, Citizen_WD

Okay for clarity here, in post number 3 you say you plugged your old hard drive into your new computer, are you saying you took the hard drive from the overheated system and placed it into another computer?

If so, was it as a slave drive or secondary drive?

If I am still off with my assessment, are you stating you placed an older drive into the computer system that over heated?

Sorry for my misunderstanding you, but I want to be clear as to what you're doing before I offer my help.

Bruce.

Okay, the question I have for you is what happened with the over heated motherboard? Is it toast?

I can not say for sure if your motherboard failure would damage the hard drive, but I am curious why your motherboard over heated. Was it an electrical issue? Such as an electrical short?

My questions may sound off to you, but I have electronics repair experience and wish to know what caused the motherboard to overheat. An overheated processor might not cause injury to a hard drive, but an electrical short of some type might.

The Fan of my old laptop malfunctioned. And it caused the motherboard to overheat.

Okay so let's assume that heat affected the hard drive. What you are experiencing now is when you try to access that drive through a hard drive enclosure it is not allowing you to access that drives contents is this correct?

it is just loading


And it remains there at the status infinitely?

Are there any signs that the motor in this hard drive is spinning?

You'd be able to tell by a vibration coming from the hard drive that the motor is still functioning.

I believe that the controller board on that hard drive may be damaged. It may have fallen victim to that overheating issue you spoke of.
