“No harddrive detected.”

    Irony: A tiny little Angel pops out of the HDD for several seconds, then vanishes.

    Did’ja try replugging in all the connectors on the hard drive? Dunno what you got, but I never trust those dinky SATA connectors.
    Seems more likely then your hard drive’s identification software just fell over and died.

    I used to get that on my trusty ol`toaster in which I play wow… but I solved it reconnecting the HD and exchanging Power supply lines.

    yay for a gaming pc that only lets me play on 750×420

    Nah, the HD (a 250 gig WD Caviar Black, wtf) is deceased. It was rather sudden and without warning-Josh thinks it might have blown a cap or two or…something, on the control board. We couldn’t swap control boards with my other HD (slightly different models, FFS), so he’s taken it to work and will try to replace components. With luck, we can coax it back to life long enough to salvage data.

    @tart – Send it to Josh, he can fix it. :P
