is this drive motor bad?

Discussion in 'Hardware' started by Martin Williams, Dec 3, 2004.

  1. This post is related to my earlier post regarding the hard drive that shuts
    my system down when I try to fire it up. I took a picture of the underneath
    of the drive motor. I'm not sure if it's a burn mark or what. Could anyone
    take a look at the picture and give me a confirmation of whether this is
    normal or not. Thanks for all responses.

    Offhand it doesn't look normal. But, without seeing the drive before
    you started having problems it's not definite. What you're showing
    could be excess resin from the core of the solder instead of being burnt!
