I recently built my first PC, I ordered the seagate barracuda 7200 hard drive. Recently while I am using the pc it will freeze crash, to the blue screen, and then tell me to "Insert proper boot device, and reboot". If I do a hard reset my drive returns, and the computer boots normally. My optical drive has never had this issue, so Im assuming the problem stemming from the hard drive. I have checked the Sata cable, and ports.
I have ran virus, and hard drive tests, and it has passed every one.
My Specs: i5 3570k Asrock z77 extreme 4 8 gigabytes dual channel corsair ram GTX 680 Corsair 750w power supply
I'd be extremely grateful if somebody could help, Paul

Check the boot device order in the BIOS and set it to the disk that contains the OS as the first device.
It's already the first one, the hard drive disappears off the bios, until I hard restart.
