|So my computer has been randomly restarting. It first happened two days ago while I was watching a movie, and it keeps happening, sometimes after an hour or so, sometimes within a couple minutes of starting up.|
When I boot up the computer I get this message: "Alert! Hard drive fan failure. Press F1 to continue, F2 to enter setup"
BUT I've been getting this message for a long time (months, possibly a year), and my PC has been working absolutely fine despite it until now.
I've tried opening the case and cleaning the dust as best as I could without taking out anything. As far as I can tell the fans are still working.
So, what is the problem? Has my hard drive finally conked out? Is it a power supply issue? Should I sent it for a repair, or should I just buy a new PC?
FYI, I bought this computer about 2 years ago from ebay. It was new (refurbished) I think.
