Harddrive problems (booting)
Hi there, this is the first post i make but i'am reading this forum for quite a while now.
I'm building my carputer now and i got it all in test phase.
But now problems arrive; I got a brand new Maxtor 250GB on my Via-Epia V motherboard.
When i got it running there are no problems, but when i reboot a couple of times my HD won't spin-up; i made a sound clip of what it sounds:
when i let it 'cool off' and then boot, there are no problems and it spins right up.
Is this a broken drive or do i need a better power supply?
I'm asking this because when i was setting up windows i also got a old 12speed cd-rom hooked on. when the cd-drive was spinning my pc reseted itself so i discovered it was because the old drive; with a new 52X speed there where no problems...(old drives use more power)
sorry for my bad English :yield:
