I have an old Dell, a few years old and I took out the 80 GB Seagate Harddrive that it came with and put it in a new PC that I built. The moment I hit the power button the PC turns off and would not start up until I took out that Dell Hard drive. I then proceeded to put the HD back into the dell and now the power light flashes yellow and it will not start up.
What has happened? Did the disk completely die? If so I am so screwed. I had important files on that disk. I had no idea it would blow just by putting it into another computer.
Does Dell make their parts fail if you tamper with them by putting them in a different machine?
