Hi Good day!! well i think your board didn't detect your HDD for some reason: 1. unexpected shutdown 2. cable not properly connect in HDD to motherboard 3. HDD have been damage because of improper shutdown.
here are the step to detect your HDD 1.pull out your cable from the HDD and then re-insert it make sure it its inserted properly. 2.go to CMOS and then in the "MAIN menu" check the primary master, primary slave, etc. in the primary master your HDD should be detect there. if not enter your primary master for auto detecting. if nothing happens and still not detected you must replace the cable of your HDD.
shutdown [-i | -l | -s | -r | -a] [-f] [-m \\computername] [-t xx] [-c "comment"] [-d up:xx:yy]

-d [u] [p]:xx:yy
The reason code for the shutdown u is the user code p is a planned shutdown code xx is the major reason code (positive integer less than 256) yy is the minor reason code (positive integer less than 65536) Do reply me if it sort out your prob
1. If the unit stays on after you pressed the on button you may have an on/off switch on the back of the unit to trun it off. 2. If you switch on/off the PC with a "press on press off switch, the switch may be faulty. 3. If you have Windows XP and you have tried to "shutdown" this is due to a program running and has not completed it task. 4.Unplug the PC from the power for a few seconds ( 10 at the most) and then power up again and restart.
You either have two issues . The heatsink Fan needs replaced ( it will shut down to save you from burning out the chip ) Or possibly the power supply has an issue . More than likely is the Fan for CPU .
