    "I had a random blue screen that scared me because after it happened my driver was un-bootable" Do you mean that the hard drive was not bootable or unmounted? The BSOD is a DRIVER_POWER_STATE_FAILURE. This points to a problem with hibernation or even a video driver fault

    It told me the following error:

    HD0 -- Non-Boot-DIsk. Please insert a bootable disk to continue.

    f1 to retry, f2 for CMOS Setup


    However it did happen as it was about to hibernate, battery too low.

    PXE=Pre-boot Execution Environment... Usually seen when there is no Hard Drive or CD/DVD drive detected. Can you boot from the CD/DVD? If both these devices can't be seen, the motherboard may be the issue here

    No but... I just rebooted and for some reason it worked.

    Now I think this computer's power state is actually having an issue as it never detects the hard drive after hibernating

    **TESTED**

    Yes I only see this after hibernating

    Can you change the power settings, they may be corrupt
