Several months ago, my computer froze up admidst a download and I had to reboot. When I did, the motherboad no longer recognized the HD. (No motherboard recognizes the HD any more.) Also, the drive had no clicking noises.
Days later, I purchased another Western Digital 80GB hard drive only to have it do the same thing within 2 months! (Actually, this time I got a blue screen which said 'phyical memory dump' and some other junk, and then the bios would no longer recognize it.)
What's going on? Did I have two dog hard drives? Or could something in my computer be frying the electronics of the Hard Drives? Argggg!
Any help or suggestions would greatly be appreciated.
