Hi ! , i have two hard drives in my home, one i stock in it all my designs and work and the other for urgency cases .So one day my main hard drives start to turn off in the middle of working but is on in the screen because of other components memory like RAM were working instead to show me the image one day ,i tried to turn on my PC and and the hard drive didn't started and i knew it's time for a change after eight years of using it , anyway i switch to the other hard drive and i forgot to put my graphic card again so i started using PC without it for about two weeks and when i turned on my PC after installing the graphic card everything worked fine i installed the drivers and the PC recognized it but the day after the PC took about 30 minutes to boot up and i couldn't even using it , everything was so slow and when i uninstall the graphic card things came back to normal .So i was so confused about the problem .

My Question:

- is there a problem with the graphic card or hard drive ?or maybe the motherboard ?

Pc Specs
Intel® Core™ i3-4160
12 GB ram ddr3
hard drive 512 gb (old one )
hard drive 300 gb ( instaled one )
Amd R7 240 2 gddr5


PS : the PC didn't run adobe programs like it usually should and sometime even freeze when using them . ( i'm not using the graphic card btw )

Thanks in advance !

Another consideration: PSU.

Make, model, wattage, age (8 years?) condition?

Have you tried cleaning out the case of dust and debris, then reseating all cards, cables, RAM, jumpers, etc.?
