Hard Drive Died - luckily had all my music backed up (Hallelujah!). Now trying to retrieve rest of data.
400 GB SeaGate. System showed signs of instability, replaced everything else until I realized it was the HDD.
1. Cannot boot from drive through IDE.
2. If HDD is connected to motherboard and not the boot drive, system will hang up during BIOS bootup.
3. Tried using IDE to usb transfer enclosure and adapter kit - cannot find drive when in Windows XP.
Please help. Ricky
