Recently did a new build, it's a couple months old now. Today I noticed that in between my MSI BIOS logo screen and the Win7 booting animation I get a flashing underscore on a black screen for maybe a second. I know this is a noob question but is this something normal I've just never noticed? The last time I saw something like this the system would only boot to a blinking underscore because the drive failed and I needed to replace it, so I'm a bit paranoid. If it helps: Mobo- MSI 890fx-GD70 CPU- Phenom II X4 970 (overclocked to 3.8 via multiplier only) Ram- 8GB Crucial Ballistix ddr3 1333 (not overclocked) HDD- Seagate 500GB Barracuda boot drive
