hard drive stopped working after upgrading from a corsair cx550m to an EVGA 750 watt b3. SSD remains functional on same sata cord as the Hard drive. I have tried switching the motherboard sata ports and the same happens, ssd remains functional and hard drive is not. Hard drive is not visible in BIOS either. The hard drive is a western digital blue 1 terabyte.
So this is where you call me an idiot right? Initially I did not, I kept the corsair sata power cable. I didn't think it would make any difference. Is that the cause of this problem? I eventually changed it over to the new evga cable and still nada.
I'm assuming my power supply was not damaged. Would i be correct in assuming that? since all my other components work correctly minus the rgb on the fans. I did swap out the mother board and gpu cables but I didnt swap out the sata and peripheral cables. Still weird as my SSD is still working correctly, when it was plugged into the old corsair cables. Is there anything I can do to check to see if my power supply is damaged? Thank you for your quick replies, you're very helpful.
Thanks again I really appreciate your help, Safe to assume that the hard drive is fried. Whats your opinion on the fans? They still spin I just have one led lighting up out of the three. I should swap out the peripheral cable asap, right?
