Ok so my HDD is an idiot. It overspins. The SATA port is fine since I tested it with another HDD. Just so you get the right picture this is what happens:
I turn on my PC, when it tries to check for hardware there's a delay and it never recognizes the faulty HDD. The HDD LED indicates that HDD activity is at MAX, and so does the overspin I hear.
Again it's not the controller/port, checked that.
Oh and it doesn't show in BIOS.
I don't care about my HDD, it can burn and die, I just need the data that's on it. Any way of doing this wiithout paying a fortune?
