currently a few hours ago my computer froze on me(no sign of error) just froze on desktop while i was AFK.
when i get back i was in a rush i turn off computer and restart it.....i come back 5-10 minutes later and its on a black screen
with text saying something like "failure to load boot device" or something like that. which seems like a sign
of a failing hard drive right? well i restarted the pc when i noticed that still had the error. now about 2 hours later
(now) i start the computer (i just came back and before i left i flicked off the switch on the PSU)
and it starts up normal with a windows unexpected shut down screen(where u choice run windows normal or not) and i did normal.
ok so is this the HDD failing? also why does my computer check the CD for a Operating System first? (its been since i installed the OS).
p.s what causes a HDD to fail ? this hdd is not even a year old(i dont remember if its refurb tho) could it be the heat? pc runs normal at 44 C low of 30C and high of 48C . computer
starts to bug out at 50C up.
update* so far not freeze.....i hear a slight ticking coming from the computer .....have not searched where tho
