Question about changing HDD drive letter

Undoubtedly someone here is going to wonder why I'm even running a computer, but I lean on the old saying "The only dumb question is one you do not ask".

So, Here goes: I had several HDDs on my...

Cross-Hatched lines?

In DISK MANAGEMENT the partition on a HDD shows cross-hatched lines. What does that signify?

Purple wire tells the tale

My STANDBY (Purple #9 in the MOBO main power plug) is 1.74v "Should be 5v +/- 5%- If the standby voltage is not in spec or the led(s) are not lit, your PSU may be bad or the mobo may have a short.

Thinking defective PSU?

Some of the suggestions elude to the 'green wire' as being the sole connection to the MOBO. If so, it has to be a control circuit allowing the MOBO to turn the PSU off and on. Got to thinking and...

WEIRD- yes

The PSU toggle switch behaves exactly like unplugging the unit. ON- everything (PSU, fans and lights) run, but it will not post (present any video). Off- shuts down.

Battery was over 3v. Left out 3 hours and replaced- acts the same. It is an older computer used by my wife, no major loss so she gets another one. Any way to isolate if it is the PSU, MOBO or CPU?...

GOOD Advice

Thanks ERIC; Think I missed the window of opportunity when it managed to startup yesterday. Won't do it again! Think I'm down to a clean HDD and a fresh system reload.
