    It certainly can temporarily (under load).

    Try offloading some power strain by removing some peripherals (CD-ROM,
    non-mandatory disk drive) and see if it solves your problem.

    I might be mistaken (don't know the exact behavior of drive electronics)
    but it seems unlikely that a bad PSU with underrated voltage could
    damage a drive (overrated voltage is another matter). Usually under spec
    PSUs fail to produce enough juice under load and the system simply
    becomes unstable.

    Best regards,
