I've a Maxtor 20GB which crashed last week with a lot of data inside. Now, the hard disk is not recognized at boot time by the BIOS and it does not spin. When I supply voltage, one of the chips in the circuit board is hot. Therefore, I think the problem is from the circuit board. I don't want to send it to a "data recovery" company and I want to try to repair my self. I want to buy an exacly identical drive and replace the electronics board for the new one *assuming that the problem is only in the elctronics part and not in the mechanical part, which is my problem I think. Is it possible to repair my HD?
