WD5000AAVS-00ZTB0 lock th PC

Hi to all,

I have the HDD in the subject, it worked for 3/4 years and now it is difficulty recognized by windows but if I click on it, in My Computer, explorer.exe hangs trying to read the disc.

I try to launch Data Lifeguard Diagnostic but the program main window is not displayed until I disconnect the drive.

The drive after 20 minutes is still cold, like its internal mechanics devices are not working.

Now I just bought a new PCB hoping to get access to my datas, with the same P/N of the original one, what do you think about that?

Tks in advance

The chances of a PCB replacement be successful are lightly, however there is this guy on this forum fzabak or something similar you can search on the users search box, he’s really good with this type of issues.
