And I cant figure it out. Sometimes it just shuts off and then when i start to power it up, it goes about 4 seconds and shuts off again.. other times, it will get thru the boot up and I can start it in safe mode.. then I restart and run windows normally and it dies again.. The power supply is about 6 months old, antec 430.. the rest of the components are ~ 2 years old. Ive tried disconnecting and reconnecting all the cables, and I just replaced my SATA cable because my motherboard said the harddrive might have a problem ( yes my motherboard speaks to me ) So is my harddrive fucked possibly? Hopefully it stays on long enough to read a response to this.
