Hi @jerhacker69

Oh dear the HDD PCB has been damaged.

Any important data?

Let us know your HDD Model.

If so you need to get a donor board to replace the broken board, do note some need to transplant iirc HDD bios chip to the donor board.

It seems to be a 2.5 Inch HDD, if you need to get a new one, I would recommend to use SSD.
