Seagate 100387575 Barracuda 7200.9 SATA PCB

July 16, 2012

Q1:  We had a lightning storm that took out 2 network switches in our house.  My wife’s 2007 iMac was still working that evening.  The next day, it could not find it’s hard drive.  The Apple store replaced the drive and said it was a mechanical failure.  The drive is not recognized and clicks repeatedly in regular 2 or 3 second intervals.  A Seagate recovery service has commented that the clicking noise is a bad sign.  Still, because of the lightning storm, I have to wonder if replacing the board would work.  The details follow and would very much appreciate any help you might be able to offer.
