Hi, receltly my WD HDD has a weird kind of problem and I’m running out of ideas what to do. Here some info:
- when I boot up my PC (power it up) the BIOS POST is quite slow at “Detecting IDE devices” and after that I get the message “BOOT DISK FAILURE. INSERT SYSTEM DISK AND PRESS ENTER” Note that this only happens when i power up my computer after power it down. When I restart the system I have no problem. I tried to find whatever I could on the subject and I did those things:
-check and even replace working SATA cables,
-format the drive
NO CHANGE. Then I decided to power the HDD via external adapter, so it can spin up and be ready (I run out of ideas as i told you) and then I got everything in the normal condition - fast post, everything in order. My new PSU is Fortron 400WATT, but I had this drive for almost a year with 400WATT Deluxe with no problems whatsoever.
I do not know what to do anymore. My only choice as i see it is to send the drive to RMA.
Could anyone give me an advice?
