I installed a new power supply in my PC, tired to power it on and all I heard was a “tick”, CPU fan spun for a second then stopped. Unplugged all cables, plugged all back in and it powers on fine. BIOS only detects 2 out of 5 HDD’s.
After some lengthy troubleshooting I find that 3 of the hard drives will not spin, even tried on a different power supply, while 2 remain fine. One of them is a WD20EARX with firmware 00PASB0.
Even though I can’t see any physical damage to the PCB’s, is this most likely going to be the issue? Damaged PCB?
If I was to try to replace the PCB, what do I have to match on the doner drive? Just model number and firmware? Or date/place of manufactor/anything else?
