My younger brother has an Asus G11CD prebuilt system with a Toshiba 240GB SSD installed. I bought him a WD Blue 1TB HDD for his birthday, but after connecting it to SATA/power, it wouldn't show up in diskmgmt or BIOS, and I couldn't hear or feel the drive spinning. Now I would assume the drive is DOA and send for an RMA - but this is the 3rd drive that this has happened two. My brother ordered a Seagate drive once before, arrived dead, and got an RMA for it, which also arrived dead. Knowing this, I'm concerned that the PSU or motherboard is frying drives before they have a chance to initialize, and I want to cover all my bases before I order a replacement. How would I find out whether the rest of the setup is somehow killing drives?
