Default Hmmm...

Sounds like static discharge may have done some damage. But let's hope not.
First thing is to get the seagate diag program. Make the floppy as directed and use it to boot your system. Use this to confirm if there really is a problem. In all my time with computers, I have yet to see SMART makes a false report. Normally if it says it's bad then that's pretty much it.
Let us know what happened please.

Default Oops...

I edited my post fullmetal because I reread the post you made and it just didn't seem to be a cable problem. But you still may want to swap out the cable to be double sure it isn't.
