So, I'm having some problems with my computer lately and I wanted to get some advice. Basically I'm getting 3 different symptoms that I'll list below. 1. I've gotten this error when trying to boot. "A 3rd Master Disk Error Has Occurred" 2. I've also gotten this. "A disk read error has occurred. Press CTRL ALT DEL to restart? 3. Lastly I've seen where I'll be surfing the net and my computer will just freeze. I believe it's related because when that happens, you can't hear any hard drive activity at all (you know the "grinding" noise that you can hear, for lack of a better term.) I wait about 10 seconds and then it unfreezes back to normal. The reason I'm asking about trying a new cable is because I went in and reseated it before and the problem went away for about a month. Until this morning and it came back. I ran a couple of HDD diagnostics and nothing showed up. Thanks for any help you can give me.
