Fried Up Maxtor Hard Disk

by Shivaranjan on September 3, 2006


A Maxtor 200GB SATA drive got burnt when Dracos switched on his computer. Going by the sequence of events that happened with Dracos and the magnitude of the damage to his hard disk, I can say that there is some problem with his power supply or his power supply got overloaded.

I have come across such a situation in the past, where my friends hard disk got fried up (not to this extent) when his power supply got overloaded. I want to conclude that when ever you buy a power supply for computer always buy good branded product and see to that it has ample wattage to support your computer’s load.

This is how a fried maxtor hard disk looks like: :twisted:
