My HP Pavilion Desktop started acting weird. The screen started distorting ( like bad tv reception). And then started to freeze up and completely crash down. Upon reboot an error message popped up saying "hard-drive failure is imminent, please back up blah blah blah...."
Later, the hard-drive just didn't boot up at all and I got the "No Hard Disk Found" message after trying to restore. I figured the hard-drive must have been bad. So, I went out and bought a new one today (500gb SATA Wester Digital HD), and now it's still saying "no hard disk found". I checked the connections and the new HD is plugged in properly. Could this be a problem with the mother board?
ps. it has an on-board graphics card.
