Shorted out - tierd at 1am forgot simple things UNPLUG COMPUTER 1ST Tags: Hard Drives Computers Computer Storage Last response: January 18, 2013 5:34 AM in Storage Share KingZZ January 18, 2013 3:04:49 AM OK... After being up all night working on computers... I stupidly didnt pull the plug out and release the held charge in the system before either unplugging or plugging in. Over the years, as i am constantly working with computers, ive done this about 3 or 4 times (still got the drives) My questions are... When you plug the lead in/out and theres charge left in the machine; Which componants of the hdd are damaged? Can i fix it? even if i have to go to the extent of soldering (yes i do realise how much of pain this is). i will add the make and models and pics if nessicary.
