Hard Drive not recognized Tags: Hard Drives Storage Last response: October 23, 2011 9:48 PM in Storage Share soldiuM October 23, 2011 4:59:34 PM Hello, Last night I shut my PC down with the "Sleep mode" (Standby or whatever it's called), I went afk for an hour and when I came back to start my PC again I got following message: "Reboot and select proper boot device or insert boot media in selected boot device and press a key" My HDD is not recognized in the BIOS, I checked if all the wires were plugged in correctly, but it's still not working. I also tried to load BIOS default settings, but it didn't help. I tested it again this morning and somehow it worked fine, until I had to shut down the PC again. Maybe is my HDD just dying, but I bought it 1 month ago...
