I'm not sure what you're talking about either. You'll need to give us quite a bit more detail.

Dropping it out of an airplane would make it crash. So would hitting it with a hammer. Or even throwing it off the top of a tall building. You're welcome.

Well why didn't you say that in the first place? Makes the whole thing clear now. If you de-bone your ice-cream, the hard drive will stop crashing!

I accept Visa, MasterCard, and chipmunk pelts.

I'm not sure what would cause your Mac Mini to crash, but from the details you have given us, I'm guessing it's brown outs in your area.

I'm wondering if the diagnosis is correct, though. Is it the HD crashing or the brownout causing the mini to shut down?

Discuss.

If brown outs are causing trouble, and they do, you need to have an UPS (Uninteruptable Power Supply).

But what about the all powerful "Start up automatically after power failure" in System Preferences?
Maybe I didn't get everything I was working on back, but it never crashed the hard drive.

I'm still not convinced that the HD crashed.
