Ahhh! Help Please!

Hello guys!

Okay prob is that one of the IDE pins has come off of the hardrive chip.

So I "try" and solder it back on but I mess up! (Shakey hand) and now I have covered 3 pins..

Is this recoverable?

I think I need pix to fully understand what it is that you've messed up. At this point it sounds like it's foobarred and you need to replace the HD or Mobo (or use a different IDE connector if u have one), whichever end we're talking about.

It is possible to wick up the solder with some solder wick however, might be able to save you from a short, but not positive depending on the severity of how much u coated the other pins.

If one of the pins came off i think your buggered. Solder will have made it worse, but u can remove it with a type of braid. Only problem is its dam hard to do, and i have no idea where to get the braid.

Got some Xmas money left? Get an SATA2 drive.

Edit: frag wins

Some slim solder wick might do the job, but it's all going to depend on how much extra solder you got in there and if enough can be picked up so that no traces are connecting the pins when u get done. It's going to be a long and frustrating process if you give this method a try. You also risk bending/breaking more pins whilst trying to get the wick down through all of the pins. SATA FTW!

Pic is kinda needed, if it is just a pin on the back of the hard drive it is probably fixable although it will be ugly.

That would be my first move too...just don't apply too much heat! A pic certainly would be handy though, in order to give a thorough diagnosis

Crisis over..

Good help from my dad got the disk running again!

Just wondered if anyone knows how to do:

I have booted into windows using another hardrive. I plug my old one in to get the info off of it. I can't Because "My documents" is protected. So I can't copy it..

I really need this seeing as it has my course work on it..

Anyone know how to get past the protection?
