A few weeks ago, my hard drive was all of a sudden not being detected in the BIOS. My computer kept making a noise - the same noise that occurs when the computer is rebooted.
I had to attach the hard drive to another computer and format it. I then put it back in the main computer and installed Windows Vista onto it and the BIOS detected it this time like normal and I had my computer up and running again.
But now that noise has started occuring again and this time, the computer freezes as well and I can only move the mouse pointer around on the desktop. Ctrl+Alt+Del doesn't bring up task manager, which forces me to reboot.
Does anyone know what the problem could be? Is the problem with the hard drive?
Thanks for your help.
