Cannot load windows: Hard disk powers down briefly during bios, then comes back up almost immediately
Posted on 2006-06-15
Cannot get windows to load from hard disk. During Bios the hard drive seems to turn off and back on again quickly. Have tried using external hard drive bay for power only (internal IDE cable used) but the problem does not seem to be with the computers power supply, since the problem replicated itself using the external bay's power supply. Guessing it has something to do with the motherboard, IDE controller or hard disk itself.
I will supply more information if needed.
