However, If the hard disk is failing it could be the cause of your problems, in which case re-installing or using the Recovery disc won't help.
You can download a free diagnostic tool from the hard disk manufacturer's website. This can be run from a bootable floppy or CD
so it doesn't need Windows at all. It loads it's own operating system (DOS) into memory then checks the disk for physical errors.
You'll need to know what make the hard disk is (eg Seagate, Maxtor, Western Digital etc) in order to download the correct diagnostic tool
for it. If you post back with the makers name we can direct you to the correct download page.
