Solved Hard Drive?

Post by Sir $wat on 20th August 2008, 1:52 am

Sometimes when I put on the pc a message comes up "Disk Failure, Boot From CD" That may occur for a few times, then suddenly I hear a noise like a spinning sound and it works properly.

Can y HD be failing? Or is it a problem with the cable?

It could be the ribbon cable.
Switch the ribbon cable for another, see if anything changes.
If not, it's likely your HD is about to die.

He could try formatting, but I don't think that would work, if it was detecting the HD correctly, it would give something like "No OS on this HD" message, instead of HD failure.
