My new pc's been running smoothly for the last month.
Today when I woke up and turned on my comp, I got a "searching for IDE Devices" message. Then, I get a list of my harddrives and CD/DVD drives. I pressed f8 and entered the boot menu, and from there I booted from my hard drive and everything was fine.
Now EVERY TIME when I turn on the comp, I have to manually press f8 and then select my hard drive, and I've been trying and failing to fix the problem. Everything is fine after boot, but this really is VERY irritating.
