IDE Hard Drive Re-boot

  1. Not sure if it was part of my stupid doing, but when I got on my computer this morning, I flinged the case door open pretty hard. Enough for the hard drive to re-boot. Should I be worried about this becoming a bigger problem?Or would this happen to anyone else that did the same thing?

    Thanks :)

    I doubt the hard drive rebooted since thats not really anything it has control of, the system may have rebooted because you jarred something loose or if there was any static discharge that can cause the PSU to shut off the system or possibly reboot.

    I wouldn't worry about it too much if the system runs now. If you are concerned about your hard drive (like if it squeeked or clicked when you did this) you should download some drive diagnostic tools. There is a Read: at the top of this forum about them.
