Default BIOHD-8 Error (Hard Drive)

alright so yesterday I switched computer cased. 1st I got a System fan failure error. Fixed that.

Now I try to start up my computer, and when it gets to the XP loading screen, it just restarts.

I ran a diagnostic on it and it came up with a Hard drive error of "BIOHD-8"

Can anyone help me? What does the error mean? How do I fix it? ? :(

Set or check your BIOS to see if the SATA is set to RAID

Check your other thread on the same subject, posted a couple suggestions. No need to have a second thread going. We'll see the thread, even if it's under 'air cooling'. And if you really want it moved to a new area, a moderator can likely do that for you.
