HD Question! not sure if it's burn/ or fixable.
Posted on 2003-11-16
one morning i started one of my computer, i notice that it won't start, so i press reset to boot up again. then it just shutdown like the HD power stop making any light. and it smell like burnt wire, so i unplug the power off the wall. waited for half hour to start the computer, it won't start at all. so i remove the power supply and replace it with working one. the computer won't start at all . so i removed the CD-rom, Floppy, and HD from power, the cpu fun started working, so i turn off the computer and plug the cd-rom, floppy, and hd, then it didn't start again. so i removed the cd, it didn't work also, so i unplug the hd, it started again. so the i found the problem, its the HD 40gig seagate. so i removed the 40gid HD and change to a Slave drive and tried to put it on my other computer so i can get the file i need from it, but when i put the HD 40gig seagate on my other computer, it won't start either. i'm not sure what's going on, if you guys/girls ever experience this problem or know what i should do next is please email me ASAP, because the HD 40gig has a lot of my file i need. firstname.lastname@example.org
