Whenever there's a power surge my PC dies and won't restart. It's usually fixed by removing kettle lead, then removing motherboard power block and re-inserting. Last week it happened again so I tried the usual method and it didn't work. Instead on booting it said 'system disk error - Insert disk and press enter'
Had a quick Google on my phone and it said to try resetting BIOS to factory settings, which worked, booted fine. Decided to use Seagate Seatools to check the drive and it passed all checks. Backed the stuff up and decided to leave it. Just been up to find something on it and it was off, turned on....... "system disk error - Insert disk and press enter"
Soooooo, is the drive knackered? Should I reformat and re-install, or not bother and buy another one. I only use that drive for the OS and all of my programs, minimal data (which is backed up fine) - Just a pain in the bum that I have to mess around re-installing all of my programs
