When I install the HD in my computer and turn it on, nothing happens but a very brief flicker of the power light and the fan spins ever so slightly. If I put the old HD in, the computer starts normally. It seems anytime the power cable is inserted in the drive, it causes the computer to do nothing. I have tried it in 4 computers and all have the same results. Anyone have a similar probelm?
No, but I was thinking of trying that. I tried this drive in another computer last night and no matter what computer I put it in, they will not even turn on when the power is connected. But if I put the original drive in, which is going bad, the computer fires right up.
