Re: Hard drive problems?

  1. I am having computer problems with my most recent computer that I bought about six months ago. It was working perfectly until about a month ago. It began to make clicking noises which is then usually followed by the computer freezing. I brought it into my computer store and they tested the hard drive and couldn't find any problems.

    Since getting it back, I've had one experience where the screen went blue and I had a Kernel Stack Inpage Error Message.

    Since then I've occasionally booted up and gotten a disk boot failure insert system disk and press enter.

    Usually I then reboot and it works.

    This morning I had the disk boot failure message and keep trying to reboot and just keep getting the same messsage.

    Would anyone know what the problem might be, as my computer store doesn't seem to have a clue!
