Burnt out Floppy Drive
The other day, I was upgrading my computer, and I was looking through my old hardware and found a floppy drive. Because the wires from the power supply in my case were kind of unorganized and messy, I decided to clean them up by trying to connect multipule hardware with as little wire from the powersupply as I could, so that I could wrap up the unused ones somewhere else. (For example, instead of connecting one harddrive to one powersupply "wire", I connected a case fan, the harddisk, and floppy disk...I hope you understand what I mean.) However, when I booted up the computer, the Floppy Disk burnt up, and I had to reset the CMOS in order to get the computer up and running again. Do you think the floppy drive burnt out because it was bad? Or is connecting multiple hardware on one powersupply line not the proper way of doing things? I'd like to know because if it was the floppy drive, I want to rearrange the wires again so that air will flow better through my case.
Oh yeah and by the way, I have a 400 W Powersupply with minimal hardware so WATTS and Voltage shouldn't be a problem.
The Powersupply came with the NZXT Guardian Case.
