    I have a message on my PC that says "PRIMARY MSSTER HARD DISK FAIL" then it comes up with an A: prompt. How do I fix this error and get my PC back. ?

    Well, the message is saying that your boot drive has failed. Assuming that it's correct, you will probably have to replace it.

    I'd start by making sure all the cables are securely plugged in on the disk. Does the system BIOS detect the drive as you boot?
