Disk boot failure
The other day I was fixing the fan in my computer and I laid the computer flat on the floor. The problem is that when I turned it on at that time, I got a "Disk boot failure". I don't understand why, especially since it's a fairly new hard drive and I just formatted Windows XP on it. So I rebooted the PC and it loaded XP fine. It hasn't happened since and I ended up fixing the fan and I also changed the hard drive cable for the heck of it. It's a Maxtor DiamondPlus 10. So I downloaded Hitachi Drive Fitness (a popular hard drive diagnostic software) and ran some tests on it and it had no errors. I also ran Maxtor PowerMax and it says the hard drive has passed all tests and is certified error free.
I'm just so confused and a little puzzled on what to do since I'm not sure to install Windows XP again, buy a new hard drive, call Maxtor or what. The other thing is that in the BIOS I have it set to read from the CD-Rom drive first. Could it be possible that since the computer was layed flat that it tried reading from the CD-Rom drive and it's reporting that failure? Or would it be a different error message? Overall, I'm confused, and tired. Help me out. :P
