Hi, every time I boot up PC number 2,I recieve error message 'primary master hard disk fail',however,when I press 'Ctrl Alt Delete'it boots ok.This has been happening now for several months,now,the PC is not booting properly at all,I still recieve the same error message,but will only boot to safe mode,any ideas.I think I may need a new hard drive.
