Re: Windows 7 reporting hard drive failure on old and new HD

I may check it again. I tried wiggling all the wires and reconnecting them. Its strange. I played CIV 4 with my fiance all day today and it didnt do it once. I dont really notice a problem, and no program Ive run has found a problem other than my voltage being a little low.

Im just saying my vanilla evga 260 core 216 overclocked to SC levels ranges from 40 at idle to 60 at full load; and I have never heard the fan. In fact my entire case is pretty much silent, unless you have a really quiet ambient noise level then I doubt that the 260 will be a problem.

I have an Evga 260 core 216 and I would not describe it as loud. My gaming system isn't designed for silence but I could easily sleep with it on. Even while gaming its hard to hear it over the background noise of the room. If the ceiling fan is set on low then I cant even tell the computer is going.

Ok same problem came back. But now the fans dont even spin for a second. Only get a millisecond of a flash from the led on the mobo. Disconnected the power supply and shorted the green and black wires and the fan spins for 1 second then stops. Does this mean the power supply is dead?
