Power-conserving WD AV-GP SATA hard drives take advantage of WD’s GreenPower technology to meet the extreme requirements of demanding audio and video environments. With power reduction of up to 40%, they deliver cool and quiet operation and reliability perfect for audio video applications such as PVRs, DVRs, Set-Top Boxes (STBs) as well as surveillance video recording.
Any ideas to stabilize this now? How odd.
I apologize ahead of time, as I am not super techy.
About 7-8 months ago I replaced the HD and memory in my early 20078 24" iMac. All was working great, but about 2 months ago or so, it stopped booting up (white screen, folder with question mark.)
I finally got around to trying to fix it again, and got out a boot disk (Snow Leopard, as that is what I happened to have on a disk.) It starts the process of installing the OS, but when it gets to the screen that asks what disk to install the OS on, it never finds a disk. I am guessing there is some issue with the HD? Just trying to see if I can get some directional hints on how to next proceed.
HD: Seagate Barracuda 3TB SATA-600, part # ST3000DM001
Memory - 4GB kit (2GB x 2) 200-pin SODIMM, part # CT2K2G2S800M
I like to play around with my computer in a way that's not exactly easy on hard drives.
Any advice/experience that might be relevant?
