I purchased a WD internal drive and installed it in my HP Desktop

Customer Question

I purchased a WD internal drive and installed it in my HP Desktop computer. The other day smoke started coming out of this computer along with the associated smell of burning electronics . Lucky for me I was in the same room as the computer and quickly pulled the power cord from the machine.
Today I opened the computer to find it was the WD drive that was burning. The connector on the rear of the drive had melted and was severely chard. Something was seriously wrong with this drive! Thank God the house did not catch fire. I would like WD to at least provide me with a new system.
Please tell me how we should proceed.
