Big Elf 19:30 21 Feb 2006 Make sure you have a backup of all your important data before running a hard disk testing tool as they tend to stress the drive.

Garthyy 22:04 21 Feb 2006 Just looked at my receipt it says I have 3yrs on site hardware cover. I'm not wanting to turn it on in case I do damage to it. Could it be the PSU? Would the psu be classed as hardware? Graham ® 09:24 22 Feb 2006 Could be the PSU fan is blocked, causing it to overheat and fail. That is more likely to blow the fuse than the hard drive.Briefly start the PC and see if the fan is spinning or making a noise. Pages 1 2 >> Next… This thread is now locked and can not be replied to.
