My power supply for my PC died out three days ago. <i>(I heard a loud pop and burning smell of plastic)</i>

I was able to replace the power supply.

My computer powers up now, but there doesn't seem to be any signs of life on my three Western Digital hard drives.

I don't hear the drives spin up.

I have already tired putting my hard drives in a different computer and my hard drives do not power up.

I suspect the hard drive logic boards fried out from the power supply surge and I need to replace the logic boards.


I am open to suggestions on how to get my hard drives working again.

It's unlikely that all three drives would fail simultaneously. Low probability, but possible. Looks like you did the right things to check the drives.

Try contacting the manufacturer for more insight into this situation.
