PC won't boot with HD or turns off if it's plugged in

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I was given a 320gb Seagate SATA II drive. The guy didn't know if it worked or not.

I plugged it in to the second SATA port and the computer refused to turn on. Ethernet light went out, pressing the power button didn't even spin the fans. I remove the drive, computer boots fine (from the SSD).

I tried plugging it in while the computer was on since SATA is hot swappable. It turned the computer off.

Then I removed the SSD and tried booting from just that hard drive. Again, it wouldn't turn on.

I have never encountered this before. Even with the many dead hard drives I have gone through, the computer will boot. The drive just won't show up in bios or Windows.

Why is it turning off the computer? There is more than enough power for it. confused.gif

Probably a dead drive. Can you pop it in an external enclosure and see if it works in that? Still probably pointless as it is most likely dead.

I don't have an external enclosure laying around I am afraid...

I have had dead hard drives before, but the computer would still boot if it was plugged in.
