So I'm letting some games download from Steam overnight, I wake up, and my computer is sitting at that screen you can sometimes see during start up (Press Tab for system information, or whatever it says), and at the bottom it says SATA 3 error or not detected or something along those lines.
Well, I move on from that screen, and it says, Reboot and Select Proper Boot Device or Insert Media Device (or something along those lines). I put in my Windows 7 disc, gets to the blue sky background and I can move my mouse around, then nothing. I tried installing Ubuntu 10.10 and I got to where it lists of HDD Space, Internet Connection, and something else. Apparently I don't have more than 2.6GBs of space available. So naturally I finally assume, my HDD isn't working.
I tried replacing the red SATA cords, plugging it into a different slot on my Power Supply, and plugging it into a different SATA connector on my mother board. My disc drive works no matter what cord or slot I use, so I think that rules that out. Is it possible that it just up and died on me? I've barely had it a week (6 days, MAYBE 7).
There's the link to the product.
