Desperate need of a fairly old hard drive

I think you mean spin up and initialize. It may just be silly nomenclature, but when I hear boot I think of OS.

Desperate need of a fairly old hard drive

It doesn't boot at all, its almost as if the power connector is shorting out.  When I plug the drive in and try to turn on the computer the lights flicker and all power is lost in the computer, nothing works.  As soon as I take the drive out and power the computer on everything works.   Very odd.

Harddrive...I need a Harddrive
« Reply #19 on: September 13, 2005, 12:25:31 PM »
do you still need a hard drive? I have a bunch (3) 8 gb hard drives just sitting around and collecting dust. Your more then welcome to have one. Will you be attending the 50 man lan? If not, pm me with shipping info. I can ship one out to you. If your attending the lan, or will see someone soon who is attending the lan, let me know and I'll bring one. Hope I can  help

It definitly sounds like a short (no fake, I know) Nothings rubbing is it. Usually, if you don't see smoke, your gonna be ok ( I know I'm getting quoted on that statement  :2thumbsup: ) If you get it to run, look up a program called ghost. You can make 1:1 copies of your hd to cd/dvd/ and other hds. It's a nice tool but boots via floppy  :cry:

Let me know

You can also make it boot from a CD. I guess thats a bit more advanced.

I probably have what your looking for.  I just moved back to the area and I have a crapload of 6.4 gig WD harddrives.  I need to dig them out but I would bet I have one you can use unless its some unique drive.

Only requirement is the model numbers need to match.
