Hard Drive Trouble
I moved to California earlier this year and shipped my PC (of my own build) via UPS. Needless to say, the computer wasn't working when it arrived. Until I moved back home last month, I didn't have time to diagnose it. However, I removed my processor and bent the pins into place and it started up. However, the hard drive is now giving me the click of death and keeps reloading (whirs up, starts to spin, then clicks and restarts the process; sometimes not even going that far and just clicks continuously from the time I power it on). The strange thing about this is... I have an external adapter for SATA to USB. When I use this, the hard drive works perfectly. No clicks. No reloading. Just the way it always has. I tried running another SATA hard drive in my computer and the same problem persists. Also, it's worth noting that the computer worked the first time I tried it (with a seperate processor for diagnosis purposes) but the hard drive started gradually failing as I began using it.
Anybody able to pinpoint my problem / help me diagnose/fix?
