Having problems with your PC Desktops ?
HD doesn't boot I had a power out when i was starting it
I would ask if you have a boot CD or floppy to get you up. Listen very carefully when turning on your system for the Hard Drive whine ( high pitch ). If it's an older drive, it may have died. If you think it has a chance, try Norton Utilities or some freeware on the net.
Try a diferent hard drive if boot up the only chance is reinstall windows thanks
