    Angry why do i hate my computer?

    Well yet again i hate my computer and server...

    Why you might say.. well today it had 2 hardrive faliurs.. result of that 2 harddrives and 1 dvd drive now dont work its not the price of the harddrive.. its mainly because why does it happen on a saturday, and got no chance of getting a new harddrives undtil beginning of janurary.... so hopefully the last drive will not fail.. as then i will have a total dataloss (the 2 failed drives was only combined size of 750GB not that much).

    and to make it more funny it looks like it have broken the one IDE connector port so dont work any more .. (it only has 1) and 1 of the s-ata ports and there it only has total of 2... so seems like i need to get a pci board with com S-ata (and hope the only pci port that the computer has dont break down to).

    Aghhh just had to get it out...

    Sounds more like a PSU failure to me, a dodgy PSU can take out hard drives VERY easily just by dropping a rail at the wrong moment. Hard drives don't fail all to often......
    Of course they do last longer if they're not spinning up/down constantly (power saving or turning PC on/off a lot). I tend to leave my PC on from 6pm til midnight and all the power saving nonsense is turned off.

    One of the reason's I a) build my own PC's b) always buy a reliable PSU (regardless of cost).

    If the mobo is damaged, don't risk it.... Buy a replacement.

    it could be the PSU.

    The drives that failed are not brandnew. but have 1-2 years on the back

    i do only build my PC my self. as the one with the drive faults run 24/7/365.

    I actually dont quite know how old it is.. but probaly 2-3 year old PSU.. If its the powerrails that failed, then im just happy didnt break it all . (the Dual Atom motherboard is 2 months old)

    for one drive to fail is acceptable -but two within quick sucsession - there has to be an underlying fault - as mentioned - possibly the psu

    well just a quick visit home (due to illness ) well it didnt help with the PSU

    So a indication of either faulty IDE-kabel or faulty IDE-port on mainboard

    so now i either have to change mainboard again or put in a pci-card with onboard IDE or a combined IDE/S-ata pci-card.
