Hi all, This is the thing: I had an old PC running on a Pentium 2 and some shitty graphics card. It wasn't good for gaming, but i could update my website with it. One day the PC suddenly gave an error while starting up. The Error I get is: Please insert boot drive. I think the problem my Hard-drive, but if i replace it will the problem go away then? Please help me. - MoMMa

That problem occurs when your computer can't find a operating software to run ( windows ). Usually the problem are with the HDD, perhaps the IDE cable is removed slightly or the power cable. Also check Bios's boot setting and be sure that your HDD is among the devices to boot from.

It's probably failed, then. If that's the case, you'd need to replace it and reinstall an OS to the new drive.

Since you live in the Netherlands as well, I can reccomend you try searching of on Marketplaats.nl for old people's computer ( some people don't want there old computer anymore and don't want to pay to remove it either so they give it away ).

I'd like to confirm the failiure theory. Mine's done it before.
