Hello Mripra...

Because every problem like this may be caused by different issues, let's start fresh.

I'll need as much information on your machine as possible. The make and model number if it is an OEM machine such as Dell or HP, etc...will help me to research the problem. Do you have the installation CD for the operating system? Did you install any hardware or software just prior to this problem? If you did, list it here for me.
