non-system disk error

i got this error day before yesterday. i came home to find that my computer restarted itself for some reason. i dont know what would have caused that but i guess during the reboot is when i got the error. it said "non-system disk error. Replace and press any key to continue" there was not anything in any of the drives. so i turned off the box and then back on, same problem.

so i turned it off and left it that way until last night and though i would give it one more try and it fired right up. what gives??

hdd's about ready to die.

Either that, or the ide connector on the board is going bad (either mobo or the pcb on the hdd)

Run ChkDsk

I agree with DarkWolf though, your HDD is likely about to die. You should consider getting it imaged over to a new one ASAP.

I concur with the last 2 posts. Running chkdsk might get it up long enough to save data you need. HOwever, it'll most likely be dead soon.
