Very strange problem
I installed a PSU - Which blew, and looked like it had taken my drive with it. (The PSU in question is a 700W OCZ, not cheap).
So I fitted a 500W Arctic Power PSU.
It looked like it had taken my HDD with it - A Western Digital WD5000AAKS. So I put in the first SATA drive I could find, in this case an old 40GB drive from a laptop.
Now, I figured I may as well fit some IDE drives to get some more storage space, the thing is, these aren't working either, the BIOS can't detect anything but laptop drives, standard PC drives don't even try to spin up, they just get warm.
I've tried 6 different IDE drives, not all at the same time obviously, and none of them have worked.
I don't have a spare machine to try them in unfortunately, but I'm finding it hard to believe that 7 drives have died.
