Today I was using my computer and suddenly it hung up, froze and restarted after a restart it showed an error message saying insert proper boot media and press a key and my hdd was not detected in bios, so I turned off the power switch and restarted again this time it started and I got a warning message at the start saying Pri Master Hard Disk Status bad backup and replace , does this mean my hdd is failing? So I ran a crystal disk info scan and it showed that hard disk status was bad ? Also when it starts it stays up for 10 or 15 minutes and follows the same cycle, Help me plz your attention will be very helpful thank you....


Edit: I attached some images but the site is showing that images are too large...

Yes, this is classic hard drive failure. I suggest you pull that drive and install a new one. Rebuild Windows and then try to copy data from the old one to the new one. That may not work since the drive wetn undetectable at one point.
