so about a week ago, I noticed I turned off my computer, and then in the morning went to go turn it on...
and it turned on, fans spun up and everything for like 2 seconds, then the power just cut... no beeps or anything.. I've never had any issues before... and this is a fairly new computer (self built). so I try it again, and the same thing happens, try it one more time, and it turned on.... so within a couple days it happened a couple more times, then it killed one of my hard drives (western digital sata drive). or at least I think it did... as the hard drive died, and now having RMA'd the drive, and the computer did the power thing again, the hdd ALMOST made the same noise that told me the hdd was broken... (but only did for like half a second, and then was back to normal)
so I'm scared of killing more hard drives... possibly other hardware.... once the computer DOES turn on, everything runs great...
