  1. You didn't didn't mention testing the hard drive, one test which you should always carry out when checking hardware. You can either test it "in situ" with "SeaTools for DOS", or put it into a working PC (as a second drive) and test it with "SeaTools for Windows". Click "Downloads" here: http://www.seagate.com/support/downloads/seatools/

    (SeaTools can be used to test any brand of hard drive).
