The Device \Device\Harddisk 2\D,is not ready for access yet


My computer is not running like it did before , I am getting freeze ups opening folders and I sure don't like getting the message on the start up screen that the bios is not installed .
Please someone let me know if I should take the computer to a pro to install XP again. My son did it this time and I am thinking that I am going to have a crash very soon . But as I know nothing about all this I am looking for any help you can give me Thank You Bug
