Hello, my computer was running fine the past week but now I am been suddenly getting BSODs. I am using my computer normally, sometimes playing games and the entire screen freezes and then few seconds later I get a BSOD saying "KERNEL_DATA_INPAGE_ERROR", sometimes the BSOD just says "A problem has been detected and Windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer". I have to restart my PC and it says "No bootable device insert boot disc and press any key", and even in bios it doesn't detect my hard drive. I then have to turn off the power supply switch off and on for it to recognize my hard drive again and be able to start windows. I will be glad to provide any more information. Please help me, thank you.

It's almost certainly a failing hard drive - possibly a problem with the drive's control electronics rather than with the magnetic media itself (it could conceivably be a problem with the PATA or SATA interface on your motherboard but this is less likely given that it does not get resolved by simply rebooting the system).

I would recommend backing up any important data as soon as possible and looking into whether your drive can be replaced under warranty. (It might be a good excuse to get a bigger, faster drive anyway, even if it is still under warranty - you can always use the warranty replacement as a second drive!)

Hello Stephen, thanks for the reply. I have done memory and hard drive tests and haven't got any errors. I even did a full disk check. I also had a ssd which stopped showing up in bios and recently sent it to the company for rma. I am currently using this hard drive until it returns. My motherboard is brand new, less than 2 weeks since I got it, my computer ran perfectly the first week, and now I am having the BSOD I stated. Is there any way I can make sure it's a failing hard drive?
