i'm looking at buying a 2nd had BROKEN laptop HardDisk and seeing if i can fix it
what do you think?
because a broken HD cost 5% of what a new one costs
i know that it depends what exactly is wrong with it but its only $2-$20

i wouldn't bother. theres very liitle you can repair on a hardrive and you may have a hard time finding parts.

For $2 to $5 it is worth buying to find out if it was just a software/format problem. They make cool paperweights.

Heating or cooling might fire it up for certain electronic faults too, then you'd know for sure what sort of paperweight you had.
