I have a custom built PC with two hard drives. All was working fine until one day I tried to power on and it came on for a second and immediately turned off. I smelled a burning smell and assumed the power supply went dead. I replaced the power supply but now it wasn't turning on at all.
I wanted to backup one of my hard drives so I took it out and plugged it into a friend's desktop. When this hard drive was connected, his desktop did not start either. When I took it out, it started. I tested my own machine now without that hard drive and it started as well! It seems like something is messed up with the hard drive, which is disappointing because I have a lot of files on it.
Does anyone know what could be wrong with the hard drive and if there is any way to fix it? Perhaps replacing the power connector?
