cold killed my hard drives

booted up the pc, went to double click on ie when the mose frooze, after about 30secs it started to move again, then BSOD, which said it was writing a dump file but wasnt

reset pc, and it started to boot again, but bios could not detect the hard drives

guess the cold caused the hard drives os to hang

powered pc off for 20 secs and it booted fine now, oh thermometer says its 9oC in here, burr

hope it warms a bit before missess comes how and tries to wake the mediacenter

Low temperatures shouldn't make the hard drive stop functioning - are you sure there wasn't something else going on?

unfortunatly we both work shift, so having the heating on a timer is no use, we just switch it on when we're home, and off when we leave
