Hello, earlier tonight, my computer wich is on the ground, felt sideways. It made some really bad fans noises. I putted it back up, and when looking at my screens, there was literally no issues. I stil decided to restart it just in case. I got to the Windows's lock screen normally, then it restarted normally by itself. Then, when it opened again, I had a black screen with the fellow words "Reboot or select proper boot devices or insert boot media in selected boot device and press a key". After checking up the BIOS, my Sata HDD was still detected in port 4, like always. I tried to boot again, this time from Windows in the boot menu, I had to do multiple tries to finally get the "Unmountable boot volume" error, it then asked me what to do with multiples options, for example retinialising the HDD (wich I REALLY dont want to do.) and unfortunatly, none of the options even worked. So I decided to open up my pc to see if anything was abnormal. I also decided to remove some of the dusts from the fans. I found nothing abnormal, or well I think. The HDD didnt looked correct at all. It was plugged to the motherboard, Tought, there's also this red wire wich is plugged to the Sata that I couldnt see correctly, since its underneath my GPU (Yes, it has always been like this for more than a year since my Mobo is small) After replugging my computer and everything correctly, I booted it and went to the Bios, but this time, my HDD wasnt showing up anymore!!! Now I'm getting really anxious/nervous, etc. I REALLY don't want to loose my 1tb of data!
UPDATE: This morning, for some reasons, I decided to boot up my pc, I first went to the BIOS. To my surprise, my HardDrive was showing up just like it did before! I even tried to boot up Windows...It worked perfectly! Like if nothing ever happened! I'm still trying to search my files atm to make sure nothing is missing. I'm very happy at the moment, but I find it strange that the day after the accident, it started to work normally. Perhaps the HDD is perfectly fine? I might be asking another question in this thread too,
How can I actually prevent any data loss? I've heard of people making Backups HDD but unfortunatly, I can't really spend on my PC right now.
