  1. Today my hdd wouldn't boot . Seems to spin up then just stop doesn't detect at BIOS. I am looking to do this procedure since I don't have any other options. What I am wondering is I found this and wondering if it is suitable for the connections ----------------------- http://cgi.ebay.com.au/CP2102-USB-TTL-RS23...93%3A1|294%3A50 USB Function Controller - USB Specification 2.0 compliant; full-speed (12 Mbps) - USB suspend states supported via SUSPEND pins Asynchronous Serial Data BUS (UART) - All handshaking and modem interface signals - Data formats supported: - Data bits: 5, 6, 7, and 8 - Stop bits: 1, 1.5, and 2 - Parity: odd, even, mark, space, no parity - Baud rates: 300 bps to 1 Mbits - 576 Byte receive buffer; 640 byte transmit buffer - Hardware or X-On/X-Off handshaking supported - Event character support - Line break transmission Virtual COM Port Device Drivers - Works with Existing COM Port PC Applications - Royalty-Free Distribution License - Windows Vista/XP/Server 2003/2000/98SE - Mac OS-X / OS-9 - Linux A packet which includes: 1X CP2102 USB-RS232 Serial Convert Communication Module 1X Mini USB Cable ------------------- It seems to have rx/tx, usb/serial connection and 3.3v/5v. I am located in Australia and it seems a fairly cheap option as some of the others cost a lot more to post here. (my local shops don't seem to have any parts either ). Any help would be great Thanks, Matt
