i unplugged the sata connection from the mobo.....sound like a engine trying to start.... didn't stop just kept trying to load
If you unplugged your SATA HDD from the motherboard, what was it trying to load? The BIOS
information? So, help me understand. You have no
SATA drives plugged into your computer and it is making a noise and trying to load? Or are we talking about your HDD making the noise? Check Disk found no
Errors on your HDD. Take the side of the case off and blow out all fans with a can of compressed air. Turn the computer on and make sure all fans are spinning and are not obstructed by wires. If you want, you can download the WD Data Lifegurad ISO for DOS
image and burn the image to CD using IMGBurn
in my signature. Boot off of the newly created CD and run the Quick
tests on the drive.
As for the PSU
, open the case and look at the label, report the Make, Model# and Wattage
. Boot into Setup
(Bios) to PC Health
or some such and report the +12V
line of the PSU.
