wierd hardware problem
Sorry if this is wrong forum, but.. my new box is f*ing me around, i've got dual boot XP pro and redhat 7 running, and the other day XP locked up on me, so i thought - ok, windows does this sort of shyte - restarted, and it failed to detect _any_ drives on startup. I turned it off, went for a cigarette, came back, turned it on and it worked. Then it did the same thing today. I assume a hadware problem because niether redhat or windoze would boot after the crash. Since i've only had the machine for a month or so, and it's been flawless, i doubt physical damage/wear+tear. I did assemble it myself so maybe there is a chance of some build mistake that could cause this deterioration? doubt it though... thanx for any help.
