Computer Getting Disk Error Message and Won't Start?

Few month ago my total system burned down. I needed to replace SMPS, motherboard, DVD writer, and graphix card. Now my desktop won't start up if it is not on for one day. During boot it is showing that a disk error occurred. Sometimes it shows, "could not find boot media". Then needs to wait until it heats up or has to be put in the sun. Then it starts work fine.


I am not getting where the main fault is occurring. I changed cmos, and motherboard. I also discharged all power by disconnecting all of the cables.

Stop now if you want to save your data and not lose everything on your hard drive. You have a hard drive error that is filled up with bad sectors and the disk is dying on you. The more you force this to work the less chance you have of recoverying your data. Pull the hard drive out of the computer and backup all your important information on another computer, then swap out the hard drivce.


If you do not do this you will not have your data. it will be gone and you will need to pay close to $3000 to recover this information. I know because I do hard drive recovery and have done this for years.

upgrade your bios and if its and older computer and has an hdd hard drive definitely back up your hard drive. Also could be your power supply, Also how cold is the computer when this happens? you can do a drivehere is a weekside: check, it could also be the power supply a capacitor going bad not giving it enough power.


very hard to say. One thought is of the expand and contract of hot then cold a small chip could be bad anywhere on the computer with heat expanding and cold contracting . I would do hardware checks in on the motherboard in bios

This is not enough info to give you a good answer.

Are you on a Mac or PC?

What windows version are you running?
