Shorted out - tierd at 1am forgot simple things UNPLUG COMPUTER 1ST Tags: Hard Drives Computers Computer Storage Last response: March 6, 2014 9:54 PM 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. Many thanks More about : shorted tierd 1am forgot simple things unplug computer 1st Reply to KingZZ fzabkar a c 272 G Storage January 18, 2013 5:34:34 AM See http://www.users.on.net/~fzabkar/HDD/TVS_diode_FAQ.html ... and http://www.users.on.net/~fzabkar/HDD/ (photo clips) Reply to fzabkar KingZZ March 6, 2014 9:54:00 PM thanks for the info Reply to KingZZ Ask the community Post an answer Related resources most stupid thing you have done to your computer Forum Antec...
