Sorry to ask here, but was wondering if anyone knew where the best place to find out how to reapir a hard driuve that was zapped by a power supply blowing up? The druive still works, as in it spins uyp, but just 'clicks' all the time, I know there are data recovery firms, but they are all very expensive, and as a stufdent, I can;t really afford £300 to get a wedding video off a hard drive! I am quite experineced in computers, but have never yet found a way of repairing a hard drive that has been zapped, although I have heard that replacxing the contorller board may do it, but again, I;'d like at least soem instructiosn on how to do thsi! So if anyone has any advice at all at all, could you please help me!

Thank you all!
