If the issue is the PCB does my model really require transplanting the 8 pin ROM chip?
Dead hard drive which was working only the day before – I replaced worn power cord and then when also connected with SATA to USB 3.0 cord HD light up and repetitively clicked.
Professional data recovery attempts included attaching my HD into another clients internal HD drive enclosure and cloning to a new external HD and various other software assisted recovery efforts. My HD whirred normally (to me) while this was going on. Attempts to recover data failed.
I think that the issue may be hardware related and replacing the gateway makes sense to me.
