Hi all, Im new here so be gentle :-)
Im posting from the laptop thankfully but i have a desktop in the upstairs room that has a 160 gig harddrive so i tend to use that more than this.
However, I usually leave it switched on all day every day, but im on a thrift spend at the moment and thought i should really power down the computer overnight, so last night switched it off.
Of course this morning, i go to switch it on, hear it spin up and then it stops dead, monitor doesnt come on or anything, just the little green light on the front keeps flashing. I cant reset or anything and i have to switch it off and on at the mains.
Tried removing the drive, switch on the power and i get a message on the screen saying that no hard drives detected, so i dont know whats going on , i plug in the hard drive again, it spins for about 2 to 3 seconds and the computer dies again :-(
So, am i looking at a new disk? :-(
