I bought my PC two years ago. One week ago my system failed to boot. I just asked my friends and they said it may have been a virus attack, but two days later I recognized my hard disk was not booting. Luckily, I have a replacement warranty.
Symptoms and Problems
- While I am playing games, my system automatically goes to a black screen and it makes some noise like "dur dur". It has happened many times.
- One day my friend borrowed my HDD to test his system. After that, all the problems started.
- I have the habit sleeping in between watching a movie in my room, so my PC will automatically shut down with out my attention.
- I have never worried about viruses.
What could have damaged my hard disk? Can a virus kill a hard disk?
I can't claim again for failure, so I'd like to fix this myself.
