Help please! I have an AMD 64 running on an ASUS motherboard and everything has been fine until a few days ago when the computer started to freeze after being left idle for about 15-20min, it happens everytime and the only option is rebooting the system. I did some basic checks and got a Disk Failed message: <controller 0, channel 0, Master>. Then I noticed that on booting: The Primary IDE Master: Not detected The Secondary IDE Slave: Not detected The Secondary IDE Master: PIONEER DVD-RM DV The Secondary IDE Slave: Not detected I've got a Samsung CD/DVD-ROM Device Driver for E-IDE on a floppy but I can't get the PC to boot from this, even if I specify A:\. Is this a hardware failure? Any help will be much appreciated. Many thanks in advance.
