I did a restart as I do when things start to slow up but this time she did not start up again.
Everything was dead, the only life I saw was a slight kick on the proccessor fan.
I started un plugging things until I can to the hard drive then it restarted, as soon as I plug in the hard drive it fails again.
Asuming there is a fault with this drive can it be fixed economically and can I recover my info?

Could be a fault on 12V rail of PSU

Prove whether HDD or Psu by trying another HDD, put your HDD in another PC or try another PSU.

New PSU required. However, take the hint and get used to backing up all your data now, and regularly, to zip, CD, DVD or another PC.
