Re: serious help needed
first thoughts are maybe some static damage to the hardrive?
I cant rememeber the exact figures so bear with me hear but on my A+ course i took it said something along the lines of the average static electric shock you feel is a few thousands volts and there are only 20 or so volts needed to cause issues with internal computer components.
Very possible that there is an issue here!!
But lets not jump into that conclusion, i'm presuming you have another computer available? As you posted this? Search around the hardrive manufacturers website for some diagnostics tools and post back the results.
