    Hi Guys,
    I have an issue with the PC that runs the press, we get a blue screen on start up on the usual hard drive and when we switch to the back up drive it is hit and miss whether it will start up again. I have spoken to Heidelberg support who (without a visit or inspection) have told me I need a new PC. This does seems pretty expensive and a large outlay for me to spend without exploring potential workarounds.

    I understand that the hard drives can't just be changed for 'off the shelf' models but can they be repaired or perhaps a software re-install may fix them?

    The code on the pc is MC3-C-BR-05 from a 2007 sm52 Anicolor.

    Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated!

    has Heidelberg determined your need for a new PC based upon them connecting to you remotely and getting into your system? Or was their suggestion based upon a verbal description of symptoms by you via phone or email?
