    Default Hdds keeps on dying one after another. Mobo problem?or PSU?

    my lil brothers very upset about his PC. bechara got an old PC off abbu's office, and upgraded almost everything, except for a gigabyte 954 mobo, and a chinese PSU.

    but now this is the third HDD in a row that died in it. all have the same issue, gets detected in the bios but wont boot up. clicking sound from the HDD can be heard from outside.

    all the HDDs died in the same manner. at first they'd work fine. then, occasionally they wont boot, but upon changing the SATA port they would boot up just fine. but after a couple of days..nothing, just a black screen where its supposed to show the windows logo..(but the HDDs do not get burnt, still detected in bios).

    now i figured since only these two things (psu and mobo) remained from the old PC, one should be the culprit. anyone ve had similar experience could help perhaps?

    Most probably due to the PSU. If the PSU gives too little or too much volts to the hdd it could die.

    The sound may not indicate it's dead, it typically happens when the hdd first spins up. Judging from the symptoms, I'd say it's the PSU. It's not being able to maintain a constant flow of current and is forcing the HDD to spin up, again and again.

    makes sense what u said, but i actually tried that last HDD in my Computer as well, as a secondary drive, windows wudnt boot up. the moment i disconnected the faulty disk, it booted fine.
    i also tried the first of the Hdds, connecting to the computer with an R-cable, as in external USB drive. the drive is detected in windows, but any attempt to copy or paste any files wud show long Estimated time, and then ultimately stops with an error message.

    one thing though, none of these harddrives were brand new.. but each one was in functional state when they were first installed into the system.

    i ve browsed a bit, and it seems that clicking noise is a classical sign of dying HDDs --
