Hi,
I have windows xp with sp2 installed on this box. I am very frustrated
with a problem related to crashing. I have 3 hard disk drives connected
in all.

Drive - A
Drive - B
Drive - C

Drive A is primary master installed main os on this drive. Couple of
times I am not able to locate Drive B and Drive C under MY Computer.
:/ 

Machine just reboots on its own after sometime. It takes 5 minutes oe 5
hours for unoccassional reboots

Please help. Very frustrated with this now happening since 5 days

Just curious...
Normal C:\ is root drive of windows, A is floppy drive.
I guess you set your BIOS to boot from Floppy?

Fix your Drive Letters and it will solve your Porblem
A: and B: are reserved for Floppy Drives !
C: and higher are used for Hard Drives.
Your Normal Boot Drive should be C:\
What ever causeed you to change the Drive Assignment is beyond normal
thinking! Don't screw up a computer system with such ABNORMAL drive settings
and then expect Help from a news group. Spend a few bucks on a good Computer
Book (such as Computers for Dummies)
It amases me that you don't place your computer upside down and then post a
question wanting to know why the Computer Label it
unreadable..................
Geeeeesh !

Genius

The boot drive is generally C by default.. are you just using the letter
allocation as an example or are the drives physically called A, B and C?
