I am having major problems with my pc.
I went to turn my pc on yesterday, and found i had a missing driver
that is needed for windows to boot from dos. I repaired it by using the windows disk, rebooted my pc and now my hard drive has disapeared.
What i have done to troubleshoot is,
Changed sata header, changed sata cable.
My other hard drive shows up no problem and my DVD/RW
When i went to run the error test it kept saying i had no Western Digital Drive, i rebooted 3 to 4 times and it then found the hard drive, ran the Western Digital lifespan test and had no errors at all. rebooted my pc and it booted into windows.
Shutdown the pc to reboot and it had disapeared again.
Also, when the BIOS goes through its checks, where it does the memory test and showing the BIOS details, yarder yarder yarder, it stops and says 'detecting IDE dirve'. Well i don't use IDE anymore so this option is turned off in BIOS. it was even doing this when it did get to boot to windows.
This is very annoying as i think i may need a new motherboard, but does anyone got any ideas whats going on or what i can do.
