I believe my hard drive failed. I tried switching the sata cable, tried a different power cable to it, nothing. The thing was, it was working before then all of a sudden Windows wouldn't boot up and went straight to windows startup repair. If I clicked start up normally it would just hang at the Windows logo on boot. Now, the bios doesn't even recognize it. Should I RMA it back to New Egg or Hitachi?
Its HGST Deskstar 7K1000.D (
I bought it at 5/6
