Unhappy What's wrong with my pc?
Sometimes my computer won't fire up and I get those errors at boot:







At first I tought the problem was the hard drive, so I got a brand new 600GB hard drive, and the problem still occurs.
Then I tought that maybe it's the graphic card, and I also replaced it. didn't fix the problem.

so maybe it's the OS?
Just to be sure, I've installed Windows 8 Consumer Preview, and the error still occured at boot, just with the new Metro UI.


Also, I got BSOD:


Sometimes Windows 7 boots fine, and other times I get those error messages.
When Windows 7 does boot, it freezes sometimes for 30 seconds, and then continue to work fine.

Thanks, Mumbodog, i'll buy a new cable for the hard drive tomorrow.

valis, I don't know what is the model, how can I check?
I bought the parts separately and build it.

okay.....if you bought the parts separately, the best thing you can do is go to the manufacturer site of the HD; they will have some diag tests you can run to make sure HD isn't dying on you.

I'd also start backing up whatever you wish to keep.

valis, I ran a test with Data Lifeguard Diagnostic for Windows and here are the results:


So i guess the only problem now could be the SATA data cable?
