I would just like to try and diagnose a problem I've had today before I go buying a new hard drive. I had a power cut this afternoon, but I turned my PC on again and reloaded football manager and everything was working fine still. I then left the room for about half an hour, when I returned the PC had gone into sleep mode, so I hit space bar and the computer whirred into life again, except my monitor wasn't displaying any picture. It has done this before with my old 8800gt and now with my radeon 5770, and usually just requires a reboot. However when I rebooted this time it took ages to boot and never got to Windows, it instead got to a screen saying "Reboot and Select proper Boot device or Insert Boot Media in selected Boot device and press a key". Rebooted and entered the BIOS and SATA 1 doesn't seem to be registering anything connected. Has my drive finally given up then? I've had it three years.
