Hi,

This problem is, unlike many other similar crashes because I am able to boot up and use the computer fine. Occasionally when I'm playing Fortnite, my computer freezes for a few seconds and goes to black screen with a blinking cursor in the top left, then proceeds to restart. I heard that this has something to do with not detected an OS? But this error happens maybe once a day. I have two HDDs installed, one has Windows 10, which is what I boot into, and the other still has Windows 7 on it (in case that matters).

The crash looks like this: https://imgur.com/Fxi2oYM

Any help is appreciated.

Some more info about the drives such as brand and models would be helpful

i'd suggest running a windows repair on your OS before you end up trying to reload / wipe the drive and do a fresh OS install.

Also, the first thing that came to mind was a failing hard drive. Have you tried running a quick HDD check on this to determine any bad sectors or anything?

as @shilka stated, model # of the HDD itself would be great.
