I have a laptop made by compaq...
one day i decided to replaced the HD, the HD was encased in a cartridge.
when i changed the HD i managed to put the new HD in upside-down!
when i powered it on, it burned a chip on the motherboard right next to the HD
my guess is this chip was responsible for converting or directing power to the HD.
I have gone through every chip manufacturers database i could find looking for something that relates to this chip without luck for about a year now!
i am running out of places to turn and was hoping i might find someone who can help identify this chip so i can order a new one or find a replacement.
i plan to do the solder work myself... this chip is no bigger than a #2 pencil eraser (except its square)
I have pictures of this chip located here:
If i can get this part identified with 7 days, i will reward the finder with an extra 500 points out of pure happiness. Thats 1500 points available!
