Default Disk Boot Failure on regular basis

Hi guys,

I'm brand new and I need your support

When I use my PC for several hours, suddenly everything freezes (not responding) and after few minutes the screen goes blue with system text, after that the PC restarts and it says "DISK BOOT FAILURE, INSERT SYSTEM DISK AND PRESS ENTER.".

Now when I restart the PC either when it's frozen or after I see the disk boot failure message it keeps showing this message. But when I turn it off from power button and turn it on again, everything works fine for another several hours, even one day sometimes and so.

I thought it might be a Power issue, so I bought new 400W power component but it doesn't solve the issue. Then I bought new SATA cable and plugged in another SATA plug, but nothing again.

Do you have an idea what might be the problem?

Thanks a lot

Have you checked the hard drive? If you tell us what brand and possibly model hard drive you have, we can look up a diagnostic software for you to check the health status of the drive
