I don't think you will be able to buy the circuit board alone, you will need to buy a complete hard drive. By all accounts you need exactly the same model and quite probably the date of manufacture needs to be close to the date of your original drive.

I have only ever made this type of repair once myself but I was able to transplant the circuit board of my "new" hard drive to the old drive, get it working again and recover my clients data.

Google for 9fv132-327
Several people there offering these such as this one in California

Could be worth trying Ebay as well
