What happened before : https://www.techspot.com/vb/topic24891.html Now it wont recognize the harddrive in the BIOS. The HD makes a clicking noise also. It also can no longer boot from CD because the CD/dvd-rw is shown as a bunch of weird charactors and symbols. It is like the whole computer is in a downward spiral. I would like to now where the problem exists. Is it how the HD and DVDRW are configured. A virus? is it something on the mobo messing up my HD and DVD drive. Kinda weird how the problem now is starting on the dvdrw drive. Is this the kind of stuff that occurs because of a boot sector virus? Any help appreciated, Im totally lost.
