Hard drive or Mobo?
i was copying files to one of my hard drives connected via SATA port to my mobo and all of a sudden the drive disappears. i restart the comp and the drive does not show on bios any more. so i though maybe the hard drive died. then i decided to swtich the Sata connection to another one. so i swapped the dvd drive connection with the hard drive and everything loaded properly. what i'd like to know is what is breaking down? hard drive or mobo? my mobo is 4.5 years old and occasionally crashes with BSOD with memory dump error. is it time for a new mobo?
