PC Worrking Erroneously

Laptop Support - Tech Support Forum - www.techsupportforum.com
Recently my Windows 7 PC started malfunctioning. It does function but no surity on how long>Sometimes it works for full day others it fails within minuters. I have cleaned the memory cards (two numbers), pushed in the cables. When I check set up I find

IDE Primary slave not detected.

When it fails refuses to boot again. Switch it off reboot fails again. Leave it for some time then starts. At times it prompts "Press F1" "Press F2" etc. then reboots. Then works. At some stage a blue screen appears and I again go through the booting process. PC is ten years old. I have two questions.

1. What can I do to correct this situation?

2. My PC was bought in 2010 or may be earlier.I do not remember the date. Has the time come that I change the PC?

Only one year ago I had added an extra hard disk and replaced the DVD drive.

I do not think it is a cable connections problem. The PC is kept in a cool place, almost dust free area.

I am posting this only on the same PC. I use AVG Antivirus.

Hace run sfc/scannow and CHKDSK with f and R options. No problems found.
