Lately my pc has been hanging up during boot when it is searching for IDE devices. Does that mean it's not recognizing my hard drive and that there may be a problem with the hardrive? I just shut it down and start it again and it starts with no problem. It doesn't seem to have a problem doing a restart, it happens only when it has been off for a while. When it's running I don't notice any problems. The pc is only a little more than a year old. Any suggestions?

It could be. You could try attaching the drive to another machine (after both have been left off for a while) to see if the problem occurrs there to confirm.

Either way, this is a good time to update the backup of your Doctoral Thesis in case the drive really does die :)
