My Acer notebook has an internal Seagate momentus 5400.6. 320 GB SATA harddrive. Yesterday I get an blue screen in Windows XP. When I reboot, the system does'nt come up.
Futher investigation tells me that the drive is spinning, the drive is found by the BIOS, but a size of 0 GB is shown. After attached to a second computer:
Windows XP SP3 cannot see the drive anymore. When i listen very cloose, i cannot hear the drive make the "read and write" sound.
Also, in the Windows MMC i cannot see the Momentus disk anymore. Booting the system takes almost five minutes longer when the disk is attached. (trough the normal internal SATA interface).
I think that my PCB is wasted (heat issue?) but i am not sure where i can find a replacement for it in the Netherlands (or Europe). (there is data on the drive that i want to keep).
Any tips or suggestions are welcome!
