What exactly happens when you try to restart?

Do you get any messages? Any sounds of Fans running or HDD noises?

When you try to restart, what happens - does the computer perform its POST (black screen with white text?

The POST (Power On Self Test) tests the hardware components in your computer one by one. The hard drive will be one of the items tested, and if no bootable drive is detected things will stop there.

Do you get a 'disk boot failure - insert system disk' message?
