  1. The computer i have was given to me a while ago and i had to crack it open to install a FX 5500 in it. While i was poking around inside it i found a HD that was not hooked up. So i hooked it up to the PSU and all that and turned Evelyn back on. I received a message saying "<Hard drive name> Immenient failure" Or something to that extent. I can't access this HD files obviously because of the failure. So i shut Evelyn down again and popped the case off and un-hooked the HD from the PSU to avoid unncessecary power consumption. What im wondering is Is there any way to access the HD to remove the files and or recover the HD from the failure and reuse it?

    They have excellent "super" magnets inside

    Please be carefull, when putting them on your fridge to keep your fingers away :)
    I've got a few of the magnets!

    Hmm might these super magnets be salvageable?

    But be careful with the damn magnets.
