    well at least i got my keyboard and mouse working, on my ps3. as for the computer, i reset the cmos, stripped out all the ram and graphics cards and drives, blew out all the dust and made sure the connectors were clean. i put back together and tried different cables on the drives, still no go. after i press to boot from cd and it says it is scanning my hardware configuration it goes to a black screen, still running, and sits there. i can hear something spoolig up from time to time, then it calms down again and repetes, acting like its going to do something. is there anyway to manually format a harddrive? thanks for the help guys.

    This is sounding more and more like hdd failure, is the hdd recognised in the bios?

    WD drives are fine, all my drives are WD, you may have been a bit premature as we haven't actually proven it is the hdd that is faulty.

    I used to have a Laptop that got dropped to a hardwood floor (aww, man!) and then the HD sounded like that. RIP 10 GB, all data was destroyed, no backups. It sounded like it accelerating, then it suddenly cuts out, then goes again, then cuts out and this cycle repeats again and again until it gives up.

    If you have really important data in your HD, you're in trouble.

    P.S: Useful suggestion on using your KB and Mouse, eh?
