    Hey guys

    Weird things are happening to my puter lately... This happened while playing World of Warcraft. (hold on, this is not a game question, but hardware :)) While I was playing, the game froze up on me (it has been working fine before), followed by an EMTY blue screen of death... So I reboot my system and get a DOS error-message on startup, stating something like "please insert bootable media device and reboot", or something similar to that... So I reboot and again and get that message AGAIN... After rebooting a couple of times, windows finally loaded up. So I play the game again this morning and the same thing happened. When I rebooted this time, I went into the CMOS and checked the primairy drives and strange strange strange, it didn't detect my C drive... (I only have 1 internal harddrive and 1 external USB HD) About 2 years ago my puter blew up coz of a faulty Power Supply. The explosion busted my vidcard too. I installed a new PSU and vidcard, but the puter has been unstable ever since. So my question is, do you think this is a harddrive issue or is my motherboard finally dying on me? Either one wouldn't surprise me... The mobo cud die coz of old age AND the aftermath of the explosion (and last week my sister's mobo (same mobo as mine) died too, which we bought at the same time), and the harddrive cud be giving out coz of the same reason... Any thoughts? Mobo or harddrive?

    Howdy,

    I think you have answered your Q yourself....

    You could check the cables to the Hard drive are tight.....

    And with what happened to the PC before then I would suspect the motherboard might be the issue
