    Re: PC crashes when I kick it

    My guess is a bad earth somewhere. If an OS loses access to a disk for a bit, it just logs an error and tries again.

    This coming from my medical studies: you're all suggesting treatment for the symptoms, not the cause.

    In other words: don't kick it!

    You right, there's only one solution!

    Jim I hate to break this to you but you're going to have to have your legs amputated, you might be able to get away with below the knee but I think above the knee as close to the hips as possible just to be safe.

    I would go along with hard drive cable, but check Event Viewer for error messages.

    I suffered occasional hangs (not from knocking case) after months of no issues, using the motherboard provided cables that didn't include a catch.

    The eventual hard lock would kill Windows and required reinstall. This happened at least twice but at 6 month intervals, or more.

    Replaced S-ATA cable for hard drive with one with metal catches, and not had problem since. Think cable was working lose from motherboard connection instead of hard drive.

    Had messages like this in Event Viewer Systems log.

    Can't find any errors from the shutdown, but did find one after the reboot that claimed C:\ was corrupted. Might be onto something there.
