I had a friend who brought in a computer for me to 'tune-up'. Seems that one of the chips had fried and nothing was working on his machine. I found a burned chip on the mother board and said that it will require a new motherboard. After changing the Motherboard, all his drives would not recognize. I set up the HDD manually on bios and still it would not recognize. I then put his HDD in my computer and and the same occured.. nothing was recognized. Now, I have seen it when HDs go bad but I have never seen all the drives go bad. Is there a chip on the HD and CDrom drive that may have burned out? Is there a way to repair these drives?
