Thanks for your replies. I may give that a go again. I did try that before I put in the new PSU. But that time it didn't help any. Shall try it again soon and see if for some odd reason it helps. First time I have seen something like this happen. Is odd, makes no sense and is just a down right pain!

I have tried different SATA and power cables. I have also tried different ports on the MOBO. In total I have 4 HDD's and 1 SSD. I can only have SSD and maind data HDD connected now. Nothing has changed in my system for this to now be an issue. It just stopped working with having all HDD's connected. Makes no sense.

Hey all,

 

I was just wanting to know if anyone could help me with an issue. I'll try and kepe it short and sweet.

 

December last year I built a new PC, I put in an SSD and a new TB HDD (TB is main data drive, SSD for OS) . I also had in my system 3 other HDD's. Up until a month ago everything ran perfectly fine, system booted, could use all HDD's to store files etc. General PC usage.

I shut my PC down one night and the next morning my PC won't boot. The side panel case fan moves about half a cm when pressing the power button, then nothing. Installed a new PSU, still nothing. Then the following:

 

SSD alone = boot.

SSD + Data HDD = boot.

SSD + 1 other HDD (Non TB) = boot.

Individual HDD = boot.

SSD + Data HDD + other HDD = No boot.

 

So in short, my PC no longer boots with a third HDD hooked up if I have the SSD and Data connected aswell.

Also, given the plug 'n' play nature of SATA drives, if I hook up one of my other HDD's while the system is booted it causes the PC to turn off and not able to power back on again till it it is disconnected.

 

I was wanting to know if anyone had any idea as to what could cause this, as everything was working since December last year till about a month ago.

 

Thanks in advance. I hope what I said makes sense.

Something came to mind, with the PS3 media server, will I be able to stream online streams to my tv with it? See, I am wanting to stream sport from online and mirror it out onto my Plasma. Will that work?

link us your western digital media player

I believe this is the one I have:http://www.wdc.com/en/products/products.aspx?id=320

Connect it to your tv and see if you can access the internet via the wireless.

I would download ps3 media server It's my favoritehttp://www.ps3mediaserver.org/ for streaming from windows

set up takes just a little bit, make sure that you share the folders (from ps3 media server) that you want your wdtv to play the files from and then on your wdtv select media server and connect to your pc

I'll have to give this a go, as soon as I get a wireless dongle for the WDTV Live, as it doesn't have built-in wireless. Thanks for the tip though. So you think it should work with a dongle in the side of it, right? then use that PS3 media server.

[QUOTE="silentassasin05"]Well my PC isn't in the same room as my TV. I have a Western Digital Media player hooked up to my pc. Wasn't sure if I could use that or not, has USB ports on it, connect a wireless dongle, as it connects to the TV via HDMI. A long hdmi won't work though haha. Would have to be about 15+metres long! So pretty much looking for a wireless dongle setup. Saw one called Diamond something or other and it seemed pretty straight forward, connect wireless dongle to back of PC, then there is a cradle for the other dongle that connects up to the TV via HDMI. Anyone know much more about those. Also, thanks for the replies.GummiRaccoon

Hey all,

I was just wanting to know what setups others have for streaming content from their PC to TV. I am looking to stream online sport streams from my PC to my TV, but wasn't sure what was the best setup to use, or the most reliable.

My PC is setup on a wireless network, the main router is out in the living room, not far from my plasma. If anyone has any opinions or thoughts I'd be more than happy to hear them.

Am running Windows 7 64bit if that is of any help.

Haha. By the way, from this post, it may seem I am not a PC tech person. I know me way around. Just not fully with this sort of thing. That is where you guys come in!

Thanks in advance.

:) Yeah, I chose Beyond Divinity I believe it was called. Wanted to play it years ago, so selected that. GOG seems to be bloody good! :)
