MY p.c has been having problems for quite some time, i fixed them and there has been a gap of about 5 months till this problem..


When i turn my p.c the time is alsways fuked up aswell a sthe cmos settings reset to factory defaluts- i ordered a new battery

But sometimes my hard drive crashes. I here this clicking noise ans my p.c crashes. I restart and the p.c does not find it. But after a gap of a minute i turn it back on and its fine.

What the [bleep] is the proeblem with the hdisk its about a year and two months old so it aint aging or nething. I think its the psu as its one of em cheap ones u get with a £20 case.

PLease help help help

Hi,

A cheap psu is never a good thing but I don't think thats your problem with the drive, everytime I have herd that clicking noise the drive was about to fail and seeing as your computer don't recognize it for awhile after the crash also suggests its going to fail soon.

If its only a year old it should still be under warranty.
