I guess at this point I'm also wondering what could have caused the monitor to go black and the hard drive to lose it's files all at once.
Could a MOBO failure have also caused a hard drive failure?
Thank-you for getting back.
I've tried the drive on two separate external USB enclosures and couldn't get anything.
It's just weird to me that the screen is dead AND the drive is dead.
I was searching around the internet and found that a strong magnetic field could produce this kind of damage. Something like a tape degaussing gun, for example.
