thats the product and where i got it from, well, i was thinking of perhaps getting it fixed? but that seems out of the question; claiming warranty might be hard seeing as i purchased the rig last year in september and seeing as i may have unintentionally done the damage, well i dunno
i was thinking along similar lines that it wouldn't be damaged just plugging it in. Im not a big buff on the technical side of the computer but i have enough know-how to be able to put it together however that was rather simple.
ill look around for the manual if it came with any, wasn't completely obvious that one shouldn't just "plug it in"; perhaps that may be common knowledge but im sure i lack it :S its not as though i know the reprecussions of my actions and did it anyway; i simply had no idea that the drives would get damaged as such :\
niether, nor do i consider myself one, well not for a while at least
