    Hi all, my pc doesn't boot anymore. If i'm lucky i can get it to boot after 4 - 5 times. It says that my bootsequence changed. Then i press f1 to continue and it does a backup of my cmos and then it says dhcp..../ It did also make a weird noise, not a loud scratch or anything. I think it's probably the hard drive wich is broken. One of my games i play online lately also lags for no reason.
    If it's the hard drive then i have a question. I want to transfer all my files from my old hard drive to the new one. But is it possible to use ata and sata at the same time? And is there a noticeable performance difference between ata and sata?

    Thx in advance.


    EDIT: My pc just crashed. It showed a black screen, then a blue one with white letters. And then it just rebooted. I've got no virusses or spyware on my pc.
