I suspect that my friends hard drive has been fried as a result of a bad psu!

Now as far as I know he said his pc is just fried and that's it. For all I know he may have a virus on the drive. I've tried to fix his pc and believe me people his pc won't start. Bought a new psu and it won't start either. The hard drive makes no sound as if it's dead. All his inner components seem dead.

I just want to know if it is alright if I put his fried hard drive in my pc to test and see if it works. Maybe he has a virus on it I dunno...

So what do you think ya'll? Can this affect my pc?

It is highly unlikeley that it will damage your pc. Ive tested loads of drives in this way & never damaged a pc whilst doing so.
(There could always be a first time though, so be warned.)

You will probably find the drive & most other components work & all that your friend fried was his mobo.
