I am having a problem with my computer when it is cold it boots up no problem after 10 minutes computer goes black and says no harddrive detected. in the bios running ami 02.61 says under main no hard drives detected. I have 2 harddrives in the computer does not detect either. my first thought is the motherboard might be fried. Computer stays on if i don't go into the bios says no Bootable Device. Is it possible it can be a overheating problem?


My first Step going to try a different IDE Ribbon

2nd Step  going to hook the drives up in a different computer as slave drives and see if they are good Then Running virus malware scans

3rd step Checking the fans


If there are other actions which i am sure there are can you please give me your expert advice on what else i should do or if any of you have experienced the same thing what did you do to correct the problem.


Thank You

If you're using an IDE ribbon you must have an old PC. Specs??

What is the make and model of this computer?


If this is a desktop check all of the data and power cables connected to the hdd.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.
