About a week ago, my computer froze(which never happens)...And I didn't install anything new or do anything different..I wasn't even doing anything that would push my hard drive to run fast(like a game or nothing). I was just browsing the internet, then I closed the browser, and went to click on the start menu, and then I heard a click noise(which sounded like it came from my harddrive), and then my computer froze..so I left the room for few minutes(thinking that it might come back around) and when I came back my computer had restarted and it was at the part where it lists your hard drives and ram, etc. and it stopped right at where its reading my main drive ...and then went to a black screen with the error: ''cannot find boot drive. press any key to continue'' . So I would and then the same message would appear over and over. This problem came out of nowhere..I have a pretty new hard drive(maxtor 250gb, 16mb cache) and it hasnt been acting up at all(as if some hardrives do before they die). The only thing that I could possibly think of that might have caused my comp. to freeze..is that it was 100 degrees here that day...but i dont know how that would cause my hard drive to go out? So any info or suggestions would be greatly greatly appreciated!
