HDD light stuck on could also mean the HDD is not connected the correct way..........

You should post this is hardware troubleshooting. (you are not buying anything or asking about buying suggestions.)

Could be that powersupply is bad, but I dont think so. Try connecting the HD again. and make sure you connected them to the right sata thingy.
