Hi there! Recently put together a new build with a Corsair 850HX but - and this has happened a total of three times now - whenever I switch the PSU on from the back from O to I, there is a flash of white light coming from inside it somewhere for just a brief instance. Is this a normal feature of the product? Or is there some hidden damage I need to be concerned with?

Even when run as administrator is set. I think this flashing tool needs an update itself. There's clearly an issue here. This is on an Acer Aspire One 721 series. I also tried on my PC with a Gigabyte motherboard and AMD Phenom II x6. Both computers were set to SATA AHCI, I even tried cycling all other settings to see if they worked. -- Back story: the reason why I want to do a firmware update is that this drive failed on me last night when I came home. I had left my netbook copying my music collection to the drive all day (copying probably only took a half hour or something). The drive was on in my laptop all day. When I arrived home I put my computer to sleep by closing the lid and set it in my room. Later when I went to wake up the netbook my drive would not init. The HD indicator LED was on solid and I got a no-OS error. Today I booted up in Linux and was able to see the drive. I created a new partition table and installed Linux fine. I was able to install Windows 7 as well (what I'm typing this on). I was wondering if maybe the firmware update would provide a fix. Maybe I should just RMA the drive as it's clearly faulty (it was a refurb to start with).
