Sig Rig Completely messed up! - Page 5

post #41 of 45
Thread Starter 
I think I may have found it.

I took the IDE drive (The one I put in ), and plugged it into a really OLD rig and I couldnt even hear the drive spin-up.

Somehow...

I think the worst has happened.

I created my own Hard-Drive-Holocost.

I think I somehow destroyed my hard drives myself.

I dont know if I had mentioned it earlier, but one of the rail/wire/thingys I had been sleeving had begun to set itself on fire (The red-wire was touching the black one). That was the rail that the hard drives had been on.

I believe I have shorted out the electronics in my Hard Drives.

****.

/facepalm, lol.
It could be worse I suppose. You could always check out the HDD's warranty, and you could do with new ones anyway.
However - In future unplug everything before doing work on anything. It would have been easier to braid/test the PSU out of the case anyway. Hope you have it sorted and that nothing else got fried. Don't forget it may also be your PSU - that rail may not be able to power hard-drives, so don't write off the HDD's yet. Try a different PSU if you can. Also did you check jumpers.

I placed all the jumpers on "Cable Select", and I put one of the hard drives into a different rig, and - Nothing -

I tested to see if there was power going out of the PSU by taking it out, doing to paper-clip trick to turn it on, and plugging fans, lights, etc into it.

Im sigging this thread (So, can I ask an administrator to archive it, or something?) as my "Hard Drive Holocost".



RIP, Pirated Discographies. At least the RIAA didnt get to you. That's how you would've wanted to go...

Glad you figured out the problem, I guess it sucks that all your drives are dead now, but having a dead mobo could be just as worse . By the way it's "holocaust"
