Can you guys save my computer? I always leave my computer on. Very seldom do I shut it down, but the other night I woke up to the screen being lit and could not shut it off with the power button. So I had to unplug it. The next day I tried to boot and it goes to the black screen with all the system info. It says diskett drive 0 failure. So, I push the power button and push F2 or F12 and if I let it sit for about 5 min it will go to the boot device menu. If I select master drive and exit out it will boot. So my hard drive is ok, I think. Why the no boot? OOOOOOHHHHHHH NNNNOOOO just heard a bad noise like scraping inside the computer. I am typing step by step what I am doing at the computer.

Please start your own topic
Although your issue may seem similar there can be other factors that may need to be resolved. Trying to bump on a new topic especially can cause advice being given for the original poster and you try it which may cause your system to become completely unusable.
By bumping on someone's topic it makes it confusing for the tech to understand who they are helping. This can in turn cause the wrong support to be given and can cause instability or worse to happen to your system.
Thank you for your cooperation.
