small SATA problem >.>

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
well i have been using my new PC for a feew weeks, just took it apart to check all the connections and try to clean up the wires more, well i got done and rebooted, and it says "CANNOT READ FROM BOOT DISK" and i was like ***, so i check the HDD and its fine, powers up, cables are tight so i try again, same thing. Upon closer inspection of the SATA cable, i realize i cracked it pretty bad trying to re-route it (T.T). I ahve a new SATA on the way, overnight fedEX from newegg, but could that have hurt my drive at all?

What do you mean, you cracked the thing on the hard disk? Or you cracked the sata cable? If you just messed up the cable, you SHOULD still have a TON of extra SATA Cables that came with your mobo (I know that I got 6 with my mobo and 4 w/ my RAID card, and most people only use like 2).

If you cracked the thing on your hard disk, then yeah, you'll probably want to get a new one rather then risk losing all your data due to it. Try to RMA the drive too.

sry, should have clairified that, it was infact the cable that was cracked, and nope i dont have a spare to steal at the moment

:EDIT: the drive appears to be fine, no chips / cracks on the connectors, so i figure its just the faulty cable, still worried about my drive :/

I can't see why that'd damage the drive.

If it's just the cable, no big deal
