Answers :

I think you may find your hard drive has failed? \015\012\015\012I suggest that you replace the hard drive with a new one. \015\012\015\012But, just to check.. remove the hard Drive from the machine... (usually acessable under the machine via a couple of screws and usually just slides out etc) Then try to "Boot" the machine from CD or floppy.. (on say ya Windows XP CD, choosing Boot from CD from PC menu) if it does.. then it IS ya HD, if not then ya may have a Motherboard fault. \015\012\015\012So do NOT change the drive.. at this juncture I would suggest ya go to a reputable PC repairer and ask for a "Quote" for the fix, and an explanation of what is/was wrong.
