  • Can I replace the PCB board on a hard drive?

    The IDE pins are bent and I need to the files off it. I tried plugging it in but it just broke more pins off now the computer doesn't see it at all. Could I buy a drive that's the same model and switch the boards? It's a Hitachi CinemaStar HCS725025VLAT80, 250GB IDE made in 2007.

    [ This is not a laptop. Its a Computer, using a cabled connection, no WiFi ] So what is the problem? I cannot figure it out, what happens is that my computer will, at completely random intervals, lose connection for anywhere between 2-6 seconds. There is no telling when or why this happens, its happened during the day, evening and night. I've seen it happen one time during a whole day, none for a few days, and then about 20 times in one evening. Its absolutely random when, and how much it occurs. This is a major issue, as I play a lot of video games. League of Legends, World of Warcraft, Counter Strike etcetera, and I play most of it competitively, so its very frustrating. When it happens during my games, its not just a huge spike in ping, its straight up "You have zero connection." When it happens, the internet icon on my PC will also gain the red triangle, for like, 2 seconds, then yellow for 3-5 and then back to normal. The little internet light on the back of my PC will also turn off for the duration of the red icon. It can happen back to back, sometimes it'll happen once or twice during an hour, or 20 times in 20 minutes. At this point, I fear it might be a hardware issue. I'll make a list of what I have done so far. Any ideas for a fix would be very appreciated, as this problem has really started wearing on me.

  • Does anyone know how to increase copy speed?

    Best answer: If you are copying over from some kind of flash drive, the flash reader makes a huge difference. One based on an older chip may only transfer at the speed you are seeing, even though USB 2.0 (or 3.0 of course) is capable of much faster. Only solution is to get another reader. Actually 5 MB/sec is 18 GB/hour, so... show more

    Actually 5 MB/sec is 18 GB/hour, so if you don't have to do this operation often, you might just want to live with it.

  • No logo on new hard drive?

    I got a Hitachi 2TB hard drive on eBay. It's brand new, sealed in the bag but it's missing the Hitachi logo. Did I get a cheap knockoff, or did they just remove it for some reason?

  • Will settjng my CPU fan to Silent Mode affect my in game performance?

    Or will it just affect my cpu temps? It’s kind of weird how my cpu fan sound crazy when I get over 400 FPS in almost any game. I thought that settjng it to Silent Mode in the BIOS might fix it. Will it affect my FPS in game or will it just affect my cpu temps?
