I'm using a Dragon + K7V m/b, AMD Athlon 2000 cpu.
My system runs fine then all of a sudden it shuts down and won't
reload...I get the non system disk, failure message, In the bios I
can't detect the hard drive either. Sometimes it runs great for months
then the problem reappears. I swapped the IDE cable, andused a
different power plug, and so far it's fine...Is there anything else I
should be checking? Thanks

Heat problem? Can you check the temperature of the CPU, etc.?
Power Supply? When I thought I was having a PS problem it was actually a
RAM problem but a better PS did make a difference. It is the most expensive
single component in this computer, even more than WINXPhome. lol
RAM problem? I have had some problems with a Kingston RAM module when I
first put one of my computers together. It would allow the WINXP to
partially setup and then the system would lockup.

Did you clean any dust out of the system and make sure ALL cooling fans were
running correctly?
just a newbie here,
dave

Are you using WinXP with SP-2 and does the failure message include
"NTDL is missing hit Ctr, Alt, Det. to reboot the system"

I'm using WinXP pro, SP1...I don't have the NTDL is missing message
this time, however in the past I did have that message. I only get the
Boot disk failure, missing message.
Thanks for the reply...
