Drivers, perhaps? You might try uninstalling it from the device manager, and letting Windows reinstall the drivers by itself.

Are you sure the jumpers are set correctly? Try to connect it to a different computer and see what it does; if it won't open on another one it is pretty safe to say that it has died.

What were you doing when it "crashed"? That may lead to other ideas. Did you get the BSOD? Froze?

Well, I'm really stumped, especially by the fact that it works in other computers. I something messed up with your IDE configuration (I'm assuming that's what the drive is connected with)? Or can you tell? You said you did the reinstall thing, so I don't know what's going on. Since you use SATA hard drives, have you tried switching the drive from secondary IDE to primary IDE?

Well, it may be unrelated, but I am pretty positive it isnt the best idea to be using limewire with any computer that you care about.
