OK I'm confused...

Working away on my computer as you do then all of a sudden the computer freezes and Windows XP throws up a Blue Screen with the following error:-

KERNEL_STACK_INPAGE_ERROR

STOP: 0x00000077

(0xC000000E, 0xC000000E, 0x00000000, 0X00520000)

Now i restart and it fails to detect the Primary Master - The HDD so it throws up a message:-

BOOT DISC FAILURE INSERT SYSTEM AND DISC AND PRESS ENTER

In goes the XP CD and XP says no Hard drive found...

I go into the BIOS and it fails to detect the HDD...

Restarted a few times and each time i go in the BIOS and check for the HDD - Again it is not detected.

Also the BOOT DISC FAILURE INSERT SYSTEM AND DISC AND PRESS ENTER reappers if i dont go into the BIOS.

New hard drive time you would think?

Nope i turn the computer off for about 15 minutes and hey presto it boots into windows with no apparent problems. I've look at the event logs and there dosnt appear to be anything there about the occurance.

I had a look at MSKB and found the following

The error has not reappered.

Do you think this was just one of those things? Any hints and tips, i mean it failed to detect the HDD, but now as i'm typing this it obviously detected it again.

Yes SAMRT is enabled.

Automatic Restart is ticked.

and...

It's set to Auto.

Prefer to leave the Auto to Auto.

The hard drive does have enough airflow from what i can tell...

...

One more thing just before the inital freezing of the computer, the hard drive did sound like it was having a bit of trouble.

It sounded like "Crrrrrkkkkkkkkkkksllllllkkkkkkkk"

Everyhing seems to be ok now...
