I recieved this new computer for christmas and all is well except for the fact that when I booted it up for the first time I got "Boot disk not found press enter" or something along those lines. Here is the computer:




In the documentation they mentioned sometimes cables can become loosened during transit. Thinking this may be the case I went inside and reseated all of the cables to the HDD and DVD on Motherboard side and their side. 


This seemed to help for a short while until the computer would lock up, I would get a Blue screen with a :( frownie face, and Windows must restart. I would then get those same boot errors. My concern is with the motherboards SATA controllers, or the HDD being messed up in some way. I read in another forum post about a tool called "Mini Tool Box", I downloaded it and am ready to provide information. 


PLEASE help. I received this computer as a christmas gift, and I had been waiting for a new computer for a very long time. It works great for the games I want to play but this has been impeding me and I worry it will crash completely.


Thanks for reading.
