This happened like last week so I don't quite remember exactly what happened but ill try to describe it the best I can. I believe I was downloading adobe photoshop cc trial when suddenly my computer freezes and starts making a weird beeping sound. Some time goes by than my computer restarts but instead of booting windows 7 a blue screen appears. I think it said something like "No boot disk inserted, insert one and press any key to continue"??? That may or may not be what it said but it was something along the lines of that. Is this serious? is it time to look for a new computer? or can it be fixed easily? If so how please :)

Please provide information about your computer, this includes is it a notebook or desktop, is it a custom build or brand name such as Dell or HP, if it is provide the model name or series number (not serial) if a custom build post the brand and model name or number for the MB, add on video card if one is used and the PSU (power supply unit) providing these details will enable us to better assist you.

We may have a better idea on what the beeps were when we have the computer details.

"No boot disk inserted, insert one and press any key to continue"???

This is often a sign that the HDD has failed.

Can I ask how much free storage space was/is available on the HDD.

Please upload the Minidumps for the crash:

C:\Windows\Minidump

Place all the files into a zipped folder, and then upload to a free cloud based file sharing service such as Dropbox or Skydrive. Upload the zipped folder to your Public folder (Skydrive or Dropbox), and then post the URL in your next post.
