    Hello...It'll be a life save If anyone help me :cry: ...I just bought this New gaming pc for gaming...it was working fine first with Windows 10 , till it was getting registry and dll. Errors till I decided to reset the pc but keep my files ..it worked well for a bit But it got too much slow and was showing errors while installing bigger games or copying files. So I decided to give a master reset , deleting everything Which is a very slow process and I let it be , when I came back to check the resetting might be done already but it was stuck on scanning and repairing drive (E:) (Windows is in C: btw) and it was stuck in 100% and still stuck after reboot and then it shutted down automatically , not reboot , when I booted the system again it was showing no bootable device detected ...BIOS wasn't detecting the HDD, to check it with a bootable Windows 7 pen drive and set the drive order like this
    1.USB
    2.HDD
    3 .Optical drive, still it detected the USB and booted but didn't found the HDD to install Windows again

    (Point to be noted :Motherboard wasn't detecting pendrive was showing wrong name and wasn't booting in every restart without changing ports )

    Specs
    processor:Core i7-870..2.90GHz
    RAM :8GB DDR3
    GPU:AMD Radeon HD 5450 4GB total video memory
    Motherboard: Dreamsys
    HDD:Seagate 1TB
    Please help me out :giggle::giggle:

    The BIOS must be able to detect the hard drive before anything else will be able to.

    First step would be to double-check the connections between the motherboard and hard drive as well as between the power supply and hard drive.

    Then, when you power on the computer, can you feel the hard drive spinning? If no, it's either not getting power or there is a serious problem with it.

    If yes, that is a good sign but it could still have an internal problem somewhere.

    If the BIOS still cannot see the hard drive, before you condemn it, hook it up in another computer to double-check and make sure there isn't some kind of problem with the original computer.

    If it is new you should have a warranty , bring it back or RMA it, sounds like the hard drive failed, especially if you were getting registry and dll. Errors

    The 870 is hardly new; in fact it is now 10yrs old. If this is a new system, are you sure you have the right parts posted?

    So know we know that the motherboard is working.

    Next step is to test the 1TB hard drive with another computer. If that one cannot detect it either, it's dead and needs to be replaced.

    crjdriver is correct.
    The hardware in that "new" computer is at least 10 years old.

    And if you expect to use it for gaming, you're going to be disappointed with the very weak performance of its AMD graphics card.
