When a user turns on a workstation, the screen displays an “Invalid Boot Disk” error. The user calls the help desk. Which device should the technician check first?
- hard drive
- internal speaker
- sound card
If a hard drive makes repeated clicking or tapping sounds when the computer is idle, the hard drive is failing. Make a backup and replace the drive as soon as possible. Invalid boot disk errors and files that suddenly will not open are symptoms of hard drive issues.
