Answers :

Try booting from any of Linux Live CD's to check that there is not hardware issue. I recommend Ubuntu or Mandriva they have nice and easy GUI interface. If system boots fine from live CD you can save files from your system to CD,DVD or USB. After saving all useful files from your PC you can format and reinstall fresh OS. Good Luck!
