Heres' the story:
Just got more memory and a new hard drive today. Memory installed fine. Partitioned the new Western digital raptor hard drive and formatted it. Installed FEAR on it it and the game loaded and played fine... for a while. I was beginning a new level and it was loading and suddenly the computer just restarted. I checked the temperatures to see if the graphics card had got too hot and rstarted and it seemed to be fine. The game actually was playing very quiet. After it restarted everything was fine.
So, I right clicked on the new drive that restarted and I went to the tools tab and under error checking clicked on "check now," and I checked off both boxes. It wanted me to restart and so I did.
Next, it boots up but only makes it past the screen where it says BIOS options. "NTLDR is missing - Press ctrl+alt+del to restart" I do so and it keeps rebooting and doing the same thing over and over.
This new hard drive was/is only for gaming. I've already got a hard drive with Windows XP on it. Earlier it was working fine and now I don't know WTH is happening with it.
I unplugged the new WD hard drive and windows booted up normally but it keeps going to the blasted black screen of death when I plug the new one back up.
