HDD Clicking...I'm pretty sure It's The PCB?

Recommended Posts

I built my pc about 2 years ago, But I bought the HDD about a year after. The power button on my case broke so like a dummy I just took a wire a put it on the motherboard and I did this for months (Don't ask my why lol) Then I think my power supply was slowly dying because It would take a couple of tries before it would actually kick on. Then I think finally it died and shorted out in the process when I tried to turn it on, Because were either there sata or power plugs on the HDD a little puff of smoke came out.. And even after I tried turning the comp back on It didnt smoke. So do you think it's just the pcb, Because before that, My hdd ran fine without any problems..

LOL - there are so many points of fail in this story, it could be anything. I'd put the drive in another system and see if you can get it to spin up. Even if it is the PCB, swapping the exact part out will probably prove difficult.
