The PC has been working fine for about a week just no I switched it on it booted OK and was running along happily I had been using the web for about 30 minutes, looking for something, popped away to make a coffee and when I returned I was presented with a Black Boot Screen stuck at the prompt:
Boot Disk Failure Insert System Disk and press enter
What the [bleep]??
Its as if the PC had powered off but could not restart??
To recover from this I simply turn off the PC and restart and it boots up fine??
This has happened twice to my knowledge, but has only just started to happen I.E. after fitting the new PSU the PC worked fined for about a week.
I am using the PC now and it has not happened again, I can play DOOM3 or QHAKE4 no problem.
ASUS Extreme N6600 PCI Express Graphics Card
512MB Kingston DDR
80GB Maxtor SATA 2.0 HDD
LG GSA DVD RW
Sansun 600Watt PSU from Ebuyer (Cheap but had some good reviews)
I have run Speedfan to check for overheating and Volts and all seems fine, apart from one reading which seems to be a missing sensor as the temp scrolls from -108c to 64c, see attached.
The voltages seem a bit array though, the + volts seem OK (+3.38v +4.95v +11.84) but the - volts are wacko (-12v = -1.75v -5v = -8.78)
I am not sure how accurate speedfan is? I have also tried ASUS Probe but seems OK, I have included screenshots of both.
What else would cause this failure? Is it something to do with the SATA controller?
Any help would be great!! Ta
