Hi, i would like to ask if anyone know what would be the problem: my friend pc started going very slow it would take 30min just to boot to windows. i tried to repair windows installation but its taking ages just to start repairing. i tested PSU with tester and when i plugged 24 pin connector to it one of the lights on tester the -5V did not come on. would that be a prob? i thing its either PSU or HD failing. What do you thing would be the culprit? any advise appreciated. thank you
hi, well i have tried to use diagnostic software for my HD but when i was trying to load it from CD rom it would go to the point when i should accept Seagate conditions but i could not use keyboard or mouse it just did not work. i tried to use usb mouse or normal one but not avail. i am starting to thing that its not HD that is faulty but its actually Motherboard. cos you can feel that HD is working its spinning so i suppose its working. i tried test RAM its fine. i dont know what else it could be? i do not have SATA to IDE converter so i can not connect this HD to my PC to try to get to it. what else it could be please help me with this one.
the PC could boot to windows but it would take loong time to do so. can not find out how full is the drive i tried to connect it to my PC with my sata to USB converter it would see the HD but its impossible to read the files and its this weird noise coming from HD like it would really trying hard to work but .... ??? i wanted to try to go to HD properties but it would take ages to get there then i have to unplug HD from my PC so it can work again. i thing its HD i have ordered another one and i will get back with results. thank you for help
