Randomly, 2 days after not booting my PC, after the rog logo says "reboot and select proper boot device"
Went into the bios and it seems that it won't recognize my HDD, but it shows my cd drive.. I've been travelling lately, but always keep it secure, but I'm assuming I fried my HDD somehow, but looking for alternative options, it just seems weird that it just won't load. I can load a screenie if needed of the bios.

Any help and suggestions would be deeply appreciated.

Your hdd might be in fact dead to confirm that you could boot from a usb a check if you see the drive i Recommend parted magic, You will be able to get as much information as possible. If ypu are still under warranty i recommend you do a RMA

Well I opened up the laptop, removed the HDD, blew some dust from around it, put it back in and booted normally..... Jeez what the hell could it have been that made it stop recognizing my HDD?

Anyway this experience made me open up my laptop, and noticed 2 extra ram slots so I'll be sure to be upgrading this puppy.
