Check your power cable for voltage.If you have power,with no pins broken,and the platters aren't spinning,your drive is dead.You may have to send out the drive for

recovery,if the data is really important.If you do get the drive to spin up,check the data

cables,and motherboard and drive headers to make sure no pins are damaged.

It almost sounds like you have some corrupt files.This may have happened when

you shut down after it started to reformat,and that's when your old drive crapped

out.Did you do a clean re-install of your O.S. & app's and then restore the data?
