not sure if this is the right spot for this question but...
bought a WD 1tb Black Caviar about 2 weeks ago
installed windows 7 onto it then updated the bios
(asus a8n-e mobo) to version 1013
the problem is that randomly the computer will just turn off happened a couple times now (cant remember if it happened before updating the bios or not)
now randomly when I start the computer up it doesnt detect the HDD in the bios and gives me the "insert system disk" error or whatever it says
i dunno if its a windows error or a bios error or a HDD error or a MOBO error but i have run some of the quick diagnostic tests on the HDD and they all come back fine (data lifeguard diagnostics, seatools for windows, and crystal disk info says its good)
ive also tried changing the sata wire and changing back to the old bios but its still acting up randomly
currently i have it installed in my old comp and no problems as of a couple hours but like I said it acts up randomly so I dunno if that means anything
Im at a loss and a newb so any advice would be saweet
i had the HDD plugged into my old comp and it worked fine through a couple of shutdowns and restarts so i tried it back in the comp i bought it for with the same cable annnnd .... insert system disk error
soo i thnk the hdd is fine and it seems to be vibrating so the PSU seems to be fine....does that mean its eaither the MOBO or bios???
