Thread: Wallstreet, HD wont spin up.
03-22-2004, 10:08 PM #1clancy03wiggumGuestWallstreet, HD wont spin up.
Hey everyone, i was just wondering if anyone knows anything about why my computers HD isnt spinning up. I just replaced the logic board with a brand new one. Originaly the logic board was bad and the computer wouldnt spin up, but now the comp starts and i get the power on noise, and then nothing happens. So after that the computer just continualy tries starting up. The light goes on every 30 seconds like its trying to power up. Then after like 10 mins it gives up. Ive tried everything from unplugging power and leave it sitting there for a while but still nothing. Anyone have any clue or could lead me to some help. Thanks in advance

i just put 75 dollars into this computer there is no reason the HD should be bad in the first place. im thinking maybe a short circuit. thanks for the reply

im sorry if thats what you read from it, but what i meant to say through implication, is that theres is no reason that the hd should be bad if it was working before.

OK, that's what I thought you meant.
Like I said, there's rarely a sensible reason when drives fail.

well i knew that but i just was trying to be short and to the point, normaly hd fail cause of bad sectors, but thats on a microscopic level
