I've come across many power supply/ HD problems but this one is weird. In short the PS (1) of system I'm fixing went dead, I tried replacing it with another PS (2) (300W) and the system starts but only when the HD (80GB Seagate Barracuda) isn't plugged in. I Took out the Hard Drive and plugged it in yet another system with an even newer 400W PS (3) but the new computer also won't power up when that HD is plugged in.
I need the data that's on this drive, but how can I get to it when it doesn't let the system its plugged into start up?
Has anyone seen this before? I need your help! 500 points!
