Been getting random reboots with my HP pavilion 304w (along with disk boot failure messages that will sometimes necessitate doing a system recovery), however, I've never gotten a "No OS" message until today. Tried booting again and it booted with no problem. Any ideas? HP apparently doesn't have any because their tech support hasn't been able to help at all.

Have you tried running any disk utilities to see if the drive might be failing?
That's the weird part. I've run every test PC-Doctor has and it passes them all. I even ran Maxtor's Powermax test and it passes that also.

Since the problem is intermittent, I would reseat ALL the drive related cables SEVERAL times, and see if that helps.
