Hi,
This kind of problem normally occurs due to hard drive sectors.
try doing a low level format on the hard drive using any disk manager utility or try out for zero filling of the hard drive.
one of the most effective software to do this would be amidiag, try using that utility and ur issue will surely be resolved
Take care and best of luck :tazz:

I think your power supply might be dead. Try opening the computer and making sure everything is plugged in. Also clear your CMOS by switching the pin to 1 and 2 then wait like a 2 minutes and switch the pin back to 2 & 3. After that start it up.
If you need anymore help send me a message.
