Repaired HDD Which Continuously Going To Auto Recovery Mode In Windows 10 With Blue Dump Error
One of my colleagues of computer repair field sent me the Hard disk for repair which gives continuous errors in blue screen.
I connected the Drive on my setup & on booting it gives following error & PC gets reboot.
(Here it shows “I/O Error” it means HDD is not communicating with the respected Circuit.)
HDD is detecting in Computer BIOS that means SATA channel is OK it indicates HDD is Communicating with the Motherboard but it is unable to read data from inside the disk.
First I confirmed with my colleague about DATA. He told me DATA is not important. I connected this HDD with my working HDD & boot the computer from My HDD as Primary & BAD HDD as secondary. Screen continuous giving error and unable to format the same.
I convey this problem to my colleague & he is also agreed on same symptom because he already tried & getting same problem.
As I/O error in this symptom indicates nos. of possible causes
- Firmware of HDD got corrupt,
- PCB Main I/O IC Problem,
- Motor controller IC problem,
- Head or Media is damaged,
Any of above is not worth to repair …. still I decide to take closer look of the PCB & check if any area on PCB is overheating. but no indication while I am touching on PCB. Now I removed the PCB for visual inspection.
Both Open Copper pad contacts are Oxidized hence it is not getting proper contact with read/ write Head and Motor. Cleaned the contacts using earbud & IPA.
After cleaning the PCB, I connected it back on the HDD. I connected the HDD on My computer & it detected directly.
I formatted the HDD & it is showing it successfully.
