You could look for a new (used) circuit board and replace yours. But then, would you ever trust that drive?

Can I not buy like only the green part from the outside and change it
post #14 of 18
Chances are that the heads hit the platters and caused good damage, so replacing the boards (green things) is pointless.

Oh and don't bother RMAing it. The manufacturer will see that you dropped it and deny you a replacement.

Throw it away and get a new one. Also get a new friend.

I am just asking where can I buy the green board on the outside
post #16 of 18
ebay. I don't see any damage to the circuit board though so probably a useless endeavor.

    As an electronics hobbyist, I do see damage to the circuit board.  The first arrow clearly had a surface-mount capacitor installed at one time (look at the square-edged "seats" in the solder blobs where the capacitor used to be connected).  The second arrow I can't tell (although latelesley's fantastic image indicates that there should be an inductor there).  The third arrow, you can actually see the surface mount capacitor sitting askew on the circuit board.  That one could probably be resoldered since the component looks OK, only disconnected.  I don't think anything is missing from the fourth arrow, though (the solder blobs are rounded).

    If you really care about your data, I honestly suggest replacing the drive.  I recommend the 1 TB WD10EZEX ($62).  According to PassMark, it is almost twice as fast as your Samsung drive.  I got two and I am really pleased so far.
