Hello, I am fairly new at computers so bear with me.

Recently my PC has been freezing, usually during a download or a virus scan, defrag, something like that. If I listened closely I could hear something reboot, sounding a lot like my hard drive. I re-installed some drivers that came with my motherboard driver CD (IDE) and hoped that might fix the problem.

Just a few hours ago my PC crashed while transfering a large file to another computer through shared networking. I tried to reboot, it detected memory, and the hard drive, after it finished verifying DMI pool data it went straight to "Boot from CD/DVD:" skipping the "Boot from Hard Disk" entirely, I tried putting in the motherboard CD again and booting from that but it gave me a "Hard Disk not installed"..

I'm not sure what to do, does anyone have any suggestions or do I need to give more info?

Thank you for your time
