    Yeah if you are a gamer keep your hands off a mac :p
    Though I can play Red Alert 3 and some Spiderman game (and other older games like Battlefield 1942 and NFSU etc.). But I rarely play games and if I do, I play them on my ps2 or my Windows-PC... but even then, I (just can) play old games on it :D

    macguys did really annoy me with their ''wisdom'' of the fail of windows back then when I didnt have a macbook. But since I got a mac all the windowsguys are trying to tell me how much it sucked.
    So, especially windowsguys who never touched a mac and think that pcs are just for gaming are really annoying if you got a mac and especially macguys who don't understand that other people also like windows and also want to play can suck my dick.

    Question for the techies:

    My pc is fucked in terms of Windows not booting, so I tried a different hard drive from an older computer, and it kept saying "DRIVE NOT FOUND" or something. But I was moving the connecter pin at the back around to see if I could find somewhere that'd make it work, maybe I was connecting it in the wrong area, when all of a sudden I saw a blue spark and now the thing won't turn on at all, there's no power.

    I'd just like to know what piece of hardware is fried, so I can replace it. I'd rather not go buy another new tower. I tried the fuse, as it was the quickest way and it's not that, so is it the motherboard, CPU, etc etc..

    Thanks for any help.

    Blue spark? Oh man that can't be good :lol:
    It's most probably your PSU that got fried.

    You only need 2 things to connect your harddrive.

    The power cable from your powersupply, and the connector that is coming from the motherboard. Get a new PSU or borrow one of the same watt amount and test.

    Don't cheap out on it tho, it's a very vital part of the system. Corsair and Seasonic makes good ones.

    The power supply for the hard drive? Or for the whole tower?

    But what happened was I was connecting the thing from the motherboard to the hard drive, but because they were different connections, I wasn't sure if it'd work a different way. I assumed it'd be the same but obviously not...

    What kind of cables was it? sATA?

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    And by the powersupply I mean the main one, there isn't one on the motherboard. As seen in the pic above you only need 2 cables to connect a harddrive, the top one is an old IDE connection, and the bottom is a newer sATA connection.

    IDE power cable:

    [​IMG]

    sATA power cable:

    [​IMG]

    Both of these come from the main powersupply, not from the motherboard. The sATA power cable is twice the width of the sATA connector (that goes into your motherboard.)

    Now you can tell me what you connected to what so we can get that cleared up.

    Still seems like you have to buy a new PSU and pray that Yngwie Malmsteen will come and shred some diminished arpeggios in your computers face if something else is also fried.

    PROTIP: If your computer is really old, like 4-5+ years, get a new one, seriously. I did and I am amazed why I didn't do it in the first place, I can help you with it if you want.

    this shows you have never used a mac, therefore your opinion is worthless

    I do believe they were sATA yes.

    Right, I was trying to connect a sATA power cable in to the space of an old IDE connection...as you can see, the old one is long, the newer one is short, so I was moving it about in the space, trying to get it to work!! And the blue spark went and it all died. :cry:

    And my friend made my PC about 4/5 years ago...I was trying to avoid buying a new one because its expensive! But if you know of a decent tower (don't need the rest) for a good price, then I might just have to do what's neccessary...as long as I can instal my HD and still have all my files, that's the only thing I'm praying for!

    Thanks for your help man!

    Best possible outcome - Just the Sata cable is fried
    Worst possible outcome - Anus Cancer

    Other possibility - Fried HDD
