Hard 640G doesnt Spin

Dear All, 

I have Hard drive 640GB… i had surge in elec. damaged the “smooth chip”. After repairing it, the hard drive doesnt spin. i tried it in another working hard drive. it spins up.

That mean the motos itself is damaged. how to repair it to recover my data?


Hi there,

If the drive does not spin up with the replacement, I would recommend contacting a Data recovery company to see if they could better assist you.

Lets see if another user can share some tips or information as well on this matter.
