Windows Vista 32bit Home Premium AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual core 5400+ 2.80 GHz with 3 GB RAM

Last week or so the computer just blue screens, no particular pattern or application noticed. After some issues on 27th I was not able to restart the computer, just the fans running really fast and a brief chirp from HD. Reseated RAM and various connections on Mboard, HDrive, CD etc and it did restart but blue screened again later that night. On 28th, just after start up another blue screen.

I have attached output from chkdsk.

Any idea to give a direction greatly appreciated, below are the errors:

HP Pavilion desktop (not too sure of the model as I am not at home)
3 Gig RAM
500G HD 320G free

Searched for possible causes for the many BSOD trying to find a direction to locate the trigger. Just after posting the computer would just turn itself off, ie would be running fine then 'click' it would be back booting up with no BSOD.

I decided to put it back to factory settings to rule out software issues, however it will not complete this task either via F11 options or with recovery disk. So now it just tries to start up but errors out every time (the OS is installed but it is locked at configuration). Pretty sure it is HW issue not software from this. Looking at possible causes for some of the BSOD they indicate RAM (memory) and some graphic issues (it has onboard). Tried to boot from optical drive with MEMTEST but it just sits there doing nothing until the CD is out then it part boots and errors at config steps again.

Cleaned out the fans etc (got rid of a little dust - it is pretty clean).

Pretty sure it is going to result in buying a replacement PC - which I don't really want.

Any advice would be great.

If it isn't booting to memtest then there are very few reasons.
Did you change and save the boot sequence in the bios? Not the boot options when booting but in the bios.
Did you burn the metest using something like imgburn or did you burn it as a bootable disk or a data disk?
The burn is faulty or the ISO file is not complete.

Memtest boots fine on another computer, so something with mine.

The model is a6518f.

Stripped it down completely and reseated all components - same result. Some hardware issue, but not sure what right now. I don't think I want to go through too much hassle with it, it is 5.5 years old and used quite a lot each day so even if I correct this something else may go soon after.

Shame really, I quite liked it now it is just a paper weight...

Then I would suspect a bad drive. Any chance you have a replacement around or can switch with the one that you said it worked in?
