My friend and I also tried switching the IDE cables but the computer still won't boot. I'm not sure if its dead but I think the HD is still functioning. I also tried using the same hard drive in my external USB enclosure. When I connected it to my other computer, it wasn't even recognized. On the other hand, I could still hear the HD spinning. Any help or ideas would be really helpful. Thanks
