I have a Samsung spinpoint f3 hard drive, with a BF41-00278A pcb board. A case fan shorted and it shorted my motherboard along with the all hard drives. Nothing else failed, I got a new motherboard and now back in order.
The hard drive however completely died. A terrible photo shows the chip with silver stuff on it. Anyway, I ordered the exact same PCB from the internet, put it together and it is still completely dead. No sign of life at all.
The PCB's have the same model etc, there is one chip that is the same but made by different manufactures. The actual pcb looks the same. The contacts on the actual pcb don't look completely clean, but I've seen this on other hard drives, cannot believe this would cause it to be dead.
I have heard ROM chips need swapping on Samsung boards, is this the case when a drive is completely dead?
What should I do next?
