I have a old packerd bell 233 pen. proseser 64 megs memory, 2 1.3gig hard drives. Today got the blue screen of death, forgot what tit said, rebotted and my drives were gone. Tried over and over but keep not finding drives, keep giving me messages press any key to restart. Anyway i turned it off for about 15 minutes went to get a screw drive to open the case, but before i did thought id try it again and what do you know it booted all right. Ant ideas on this, anyone. Thank you

I think maybe one of your HDD's may be dying or suffering from heat issues - is it hot or cramped in your case?

Trie the computer for an hour this morning no problems so far. It kinda balked a few times but showed up the drives. The lady that uses this puter had the monitor sitting down on the keyboard key. maybe the F4 key when she started it the last few times maybe thats what caused it, but for now it seems to be ok. Thank you
