Click of death, crunching, Not Recognised in disc utility.
Hello again, After fixing the power supply on this machine it seems like the HDD has gone down, after 2 weeks, GRRR. It kept hanging/bombing. But was OK after restart. Kept hearing clicking on booting, straight after chimes and before the screen came on.
Today there was some scratching to go with the initial clicking. No HDD boots. Goes to flashing folder with ?, then boots from the OSX disc in the drive. In disc utility can't see any disc other than the DVD/Superdrive.
If it is the HHD. What manufacturer replacement is best/quickest/eco/cheapest for this machine. Too big a HDD will just cause over heating/cooling issues. Any SATA 7200 3.5" 250GB all the way to 3TB is right, no?
Mayer help me, any suggestions would be good :)
Is this a good question?
