You've not exactly explained the situation very well.
are you saying the laptop is broken or the hard drive itself. "hard discs chip" doesn't mean anything in any lingo lol.

if its the laptop at fault you can buy a usb 2.5" caddy place the hard drive in it and use another computer to recover all of your data and files.

if the hard drive has failed and no longer works, theres little you can do. you could try a caddy like above, placing it in the freezer is an old trick to gain a small amount of life from a dying drive.

I dont mean to go on.. but this is why EVERYONE should back up their data regularly. harddrive failures shouldnt result in manic.. it should be "oh well its all safe on another drive/disc/flash drive" ect

thanks for your comment Badger, ... But i want to clear my problem. My harddisks chip has got a problem. I have heard we can change its chip and the disk will work fine. But getting compatible chip is difficult.
What i want to do is recover datas from this disk into another hard disk. How do i do it ?

Hi prabin

If I read correctly, you have a bad hard drive (the standard spinning platter type) and you think it is the Controller Board inside the hard drive that has gone bad and you want to know how to replace it?

What many folks do is buy a used drive with the exact same model number and switch out the controller boards. Depending on the age of the drive, this can be much cheaper than buying a replacement controller board.

Your results, of course, will depend on whether it is the controller board that is at fault, and not a head problem or something else.

It's doubtful a 2.5" drive has a controller board that is removable, they are sometime part of the assembly.
What, exactly, is the drive doing/not doing?? "Having a problem" is not descriptive.

Thanks TVelblen and Britton30 for your comment. I am searching for a similar model drive to change the board. I just wanted to know if any other method to recover those data?

If you can tell us exactly what is going on then we could answer that.
What tests have you done?
What leads you to believe it is the controller board at fault?
