A few minutes ago I installed a new fan in my computer, connected to the PSU (not the motherboard) with an adapter. Closed the case, booted the the computer, and one of my harddrives appears to be dead. The name string that comes back is kind of screwed (reads "MAxToR" or something like that). The reported size is only 4.2GB, where it should be 80GB.
So, is it totally fried? And could that power adapter have done anything? Also, anyone know if there's any way to get any of the data back (although most of it was backed up)?
