If the power cord was only plugged in part way, and I realize we don't
know if this is the reason, but if so, then you could have some other
problems as well.  I would probably suggest having someone do a
diagnostic test to see if all aspects of the computer are working.  If
they are, then we have another problem, but I think, if it were my
computer, that is what I would need to know.

Not really sure how the hard drive fried.  I was installing a second
drive and the only thing I can guess is that the power lead was not
pushed in all the way.  the drive refused to power up and smelled like
burnt electronic equipment.  
It is an OEM version of media center which I used to install again.  Not
sure if the settings are the same as before but I would assume so.

How exactly was your hard drive fried.  I mean, what actually happened?
The other question is, was media center already installed on your
computer when you got it and were there backup disks provided to
reinstall.  If so, I assume you used them.  Have you checked the
settings in your video display to see if they were the same as they were

Hi all,
I have a weird problem here I could use some help with.
I am running Jaws 7 with media center 2005 and everything was working
fine and then I some how fried my hard drive.  I replaced the hard drive
and reinstalled
media Center and Jaws.  Now Jaws will stop reading desktop icons,
folders and files, and items in list boxes and such.  Jaws will also not
read lines in
WordPad when I arrow up and down.  If I close Jaws and restart it it
will then work again.  I can not figure out what is causing this because
it will work great for hours and then sometimes it will stop after a few
All my settings under display and folder options are set to Jaws
friendly settings and tech support at Jaws said they had no idea.  I
also updated my video
card driver to the latest version.
The only thing I can think of is that my video card was also damaged
when the hard drive fried.  Any help or suggestions would be great.
