Question about Antec EarthWatts EA380 380-Watt Power Supply
Antec sp-400 ps. is the fuse blown? i can hear a high pitch noise coming from it when plugged in. nothing will start. I changed my power pack in my computer because of this problem - turns out that it still wouldn't turn on. (Same symptoms - MB light on, no fans, no booting) When I took all devices off and then added one by one - found the SATA drive was causing the problem. It appears to be a short - this happens even when the SATA drive is not connected to the motherboard. Any suggestions other then the obvious of replacing the harddrive?
Actually, there is nothing you can do with the hard drive. If its shorting out the power supply when its pugged in then it is defective. However, most hard drives carry a 3 year warranty from the manufacture. If the drive is younger then 3 years old, I would call the manufacture and get it repaired or replace. Hope this helps . . .
