  1. computer wont turn on when i connect my HDD

    when i connect my Barracuda 7200.7, 120 gig hard disk and try and turn my computer on nothing will happen. i have tested it one three more computers and it does the same thing.

    does the HDD power up at all? or spin up?
    IDE or SATA?
    Maybe faulty..

    wow.. then there's your answer. Send it back for a replacement... Seagates got pretty good drives i can tell you that.. you might've been one of the unluckies..
