The power supply on my three month WIN 7 pc died.  (a refurb pc)  The company sent a replacement and I thought at first all was well.  The pc tries to boot up but I get a no hard drive detected error.  Checked connections and seem to be intact.  BIOS does not list the hard drive and not sure if  choosing another of the drop downs will work.  The pc is a Dell Optiplex 780SFF.    Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

See if the power supply has another HD connection you can try.


Does the drive get warm or vibrate when on?  If you remove it from the mount and power it up you should be able to feel the gyroscope effect when you turn it a bit.
