Again, watching netflix, screen froze, audio continued..screen blanked out, and i had to manually reset. However this time the boot drive simply vanished. It did not appear in the bios at all. When i powered the computer off from the back/power supply, waited a few seconds, then switched it on, everything is fine. This has occurred to me several times now in the last little while, twice in the last 5 minutes. Only seems to happen when watching movies, but does not happen repeatably in general. i can watch movies for 3 hours no problem...or 2 minutes and bam! Now my friend suggested it was an issue with the hard drive. it's a pyro 120gb solid state. I'm running windows 7 pro, with no heating issues. My question is...do you guys think it's a hard drive issue...a videocard issue..a driver issue..or some very unfortunate combo? While my first card was off being replaced i used the video card in my wifes computer..a geforce gtx 465 with no issues. I have swapped the sata position between my boot drive and my storage drive with no effect. Any advice would be awesome.
