my sata hdd problem

Recommended Posts

i've got a Seagate 7200.7 SATA 160 GB running for a week, but just yesterday, i had a problem with the hdd. when i boot up my pc as usual and when detecting ide drives , my pc just stall like that as there is no error messages or whatsoever.

then i went to check my sata hdd and i found there is no power supplied to the hdd as its cold though the sata power cable has been connected. how do i solve this problem now? the seagate hdd has another 4-pin to molex connector, should i try that? will it help or its confirm dead too coz they are all onboard the pcb?? do u guys think that the pcb board on the seagate hdd is DEAD?? do u guys think that the hdd suffered some shock that damaged the pcb?? need help here guys...
