Turn off PC last night after using it all day, much like i have for the past few months, as im sure some of you even do.
Turn it on this morning and it won't detect my HD.
The HD works fine, i can hear it/feel it vibrating. ive changed cables/ports etc unplugged and replugged,
Put on the 1.5 jumper, did nothing to help.
I've tried googling to no avail.
500gb Seagate SATA
MB is an Asus P5QL Pro.
Also booting up seems slow, getting up to the post screen seems to take longer than it should
Other than that ominous prognostication, I'm no help, sadly
Hope to hell it's not the MB dying.
What happens if you try swapping the places of the two hard drives?
Maybe the hard drive is failing, then.
Follow the instructions there and you can save it yourself (there was a similar thread about this not too long ago). Otherwise, you can send it in to Seagate to have it fixed.
Wow, that's a pretty serious error.
Given a choice between soldering and sending to Seagate, I'd pick Seagate...
you actually don't have to solder anything.
Yeah, unless you've messed around with components I would send it to Seagate, because if you solder it wrong, game over.
I'll just fire it off to seagate.
Thanks for the help.
