Disaster, all my hard drivers are gone.....!

post #1 of 37
Thread Starter 
Hi guys, i was installing my new watercooling loop and after the leak test i connect all the hardware in order to install windows, once in the bios i did not see the hard drives, (i have two 7200 500gb and one ocz vertex 3 240gb for main usage and windows install) i totally freaked out when i did not see shine the little green ligth the ssd has, so i check the power cable and it was well connected, i have to say the i use another sata power cable (from another psu) cuz the corsair one is kinda messy to work with, i remove all Hdds and i did not smell burned and it looks normal, i tested seperaly each one and all are dead... Oh dear God, what happend ? i know i have hopes with regulars hdds buying the same one and change the logical board, but the ssd ? RAM ? it costs 200$ frown.gif

i google it, and is well known that you can "use" any modular cable from one psu to another.. or am i wrong.. i NEED to save my data or my marriage is over..

if the SSD is dead your SOL my friend.sounds like negative and ground pins are different on the two psus, this is why they died without burning.

mechanical drives you have a 50/50 chance you get the right logic board

Did you test them separately on a different computer?

Try using the cables that came with that PSU, instead of another cable, and see if the power is back to those HDDs/SSD.

NO. You canNOT switch modular cables from one psu to another. They are not all wired the same, as I found out the hard way when trying to use Antec modulars with a Thermaltake toughpower.

Now getting serious, as far as I know, if you find a logic board, as another user said, and change it with the one you have in your HDD (I think it has to be the same, so maybe ask for broken HDD like yours) you may be able to recover the DATA from it.

I've seen it work in other forums but, as it's been said, it is not 100% guarantee for it to work.

Hope it helps wink.gif
