Windows 7 gives message: Windows detected a hard disk problem
I hope someone can help me decide whether Win 7 or my ASRock P67 performance Fatality mobo is responsible for Win 7 message: Windows detected a hard disk problem, backup your data immediately.
This message shows up every 20 minutes or so, but does not force me to take any action, so I just close the dialog box. After a couple of boot ups I get a BIOS notice that the OS seems to be missing.
This happened to two hard drives just after Win 7 was installed. The drives are no longer visible to Win 7 if I attempt to install the OS again. BIOS storage check sees the drives. Win 7 nope. These
first two drives were brand new Seagates. Next I tried a 2GB Western Digital drive, Win 7 loaded, but a few boot ups later the same problem showed up. Should I just try this with a new mobo from Intel
or other maker? Needless to say, it is very disappointing to have such a nice new rig end up killing off brand new hard drives.
