Ok so here is the problem. I got a new graphics card and power supply. I opened up my PC and plugged both in and I didn’t put in the drivers first. I have heard that could mess it up, but that’s not all. All I get when I boot windows is “Hard-disk drive failure”. I need help as this is my parents PC, but I am just upgrading it for a better gaming experience. If anybody has any ideas please tell me. I have already tried booting without the new graphics card, but I still don’t know what to do.

Did you connect the power supply properly to the motherboard and the hdd?
And to the title, no a video card cant cause an hdd to fail.

Yes, but when I try to boot I get an error saying "Hard disk drive has failed press F1 to try again or press F2 to open the bios"

Perhaps your pc is trying to boot from the wrong place, go to ur bios and make sure you are booting from the correct hdd.
Two cables need to be conncted to ur hdd, both power and data.

I already did all of that, except when I go into the bios it just says "sata HDD" unlike my 2nd storage HDD which says "Sata Toshiba HDD".

I did all of those, but when I am in the bios and select my OS drive it labels it as "Sata 3HDD" unlike it used to be "Segate 1tb HDD".
