  1. Hi ,
    Well my issue is that my computer has bug out (a desktop , sony vaio),
    Its been since Jan, never got the time to look over it tell now.
    Okay the issue, every time i start the computer
    is shows the screen (sony, then the pentium 4) then
    it takes a 10-15 seconds and saids there's no boot device,
    so i switch the Hard Drives (switch to cable selected & ide cable)
    -The hard drive that i switch it with i completely reformatted it last week
    so it's good to go. Once i hooked it up i'll press F8 click the
    hard drive (Hard drive making a annoying noise) i get the
    Windows screen with the green bar loading ,,,,,,,,,,
    then the blue screen of death / it basically blinks
    so it doesn't tell me whats the issue in the Blue Screen of death,,,,
    -Then it restarts over// my laptop as the exact same issue//

    for some reason am thinking its the Power supply?


    Here's some pictures of the computer (Inside)

    it shows the old hard drive disconnected
    (the new one it's not in the picture)

    -I was going to take this to best buy to get it look at
    but i hope to find the problem / because it will
    save me some money lol =) (it's a hardware issue)

    -If you would like me to take better pictures/ and a video of the problem
    i will do it ...... only if it will help you more

    If your hard drive is making unusual noises, I would suspect it is on its way out.

    Hi mailpup thanks for replying bro,
    well the drive is basically brand new i hardly use it, the only time i heard it make a weird noise is when i hook it up to this pc, when i reformatted 4 days ago it was perfect. (this also happens to my old hard drive but only when i hook it up to this pc)
    -strange
    -thanks for your help

    Can you get a hold of another power supply to test with? What is your current power supply?
