Harddisk shorting 12v line
Posted on 2004-11-27
I have a harddisk that a moved from one PC to another. When it is connected to a power cable on the second PC, the PC won't start.
On an earlier question stockhes told me this was the harddisk shortening the 12v line.
My question now is, is there a way to get this disk going again, even for a short time, so I can get some data from it? For example, might an external casing with a USB connection be a workaround? Or any other solution (for I can't get the hardware for that as soon as I need)?
