Dear Bleeping Computer,
Since a week, the boot up of my system is taking ages. Also going into setup is not as easy as 'power up, press DEL and 1, 2, 3 there we are'. In stead the screen stays black for a long time, while the harddrive light is blinking on and off in a steady rate.
At some point a black screen appears with some information as 'detected atapi devices', 1) enter setup 2) continue
Upon entering setup, the boot drive is moved to the last position. Every day I move the bootdrive to first position, save the configuration and Windows 7 starts normally. When I switch my computer off for the day, I know that tomorrow I will have the same issue again.
Samsung Spinpoint F1 HD753LJ, 750GB (very old, 7+ years)
My boot drive is the OCZ Vector 180 with Windows 7 Ultimate installed as only OS.
So what is going on ?
Any insight is very appreciated.
