    What were you doing? You said this problem began when you put the new hard drive back. Where was it before? Is the new drive your boot drive or just something with data on it?

    Did you try a different power connector to the drive?

    If everything works fine except when you use that one hard drive, then you have a bad drive. Sounds simple, but I don't have any other suggestions.
