Packard Bell EasyNote Booting Problems (Bluntly)

\015 Hey Guys, thanks for reading the thread.\015\012(If you want to read the problem scroll down to like the last few paragraphs, I'll just explain a bit of the history with it)\015\012\015\012I got the PC as a freebie from my friend (Because I no longer had a PC and he had like 10) and it worked fine. The first day I had it it shut-down without warning (To which I can only assume it forced itself to shut-down when it overheated as I realised afterwards I was suffocating the fan). Anyway it worked fine for a month or so and then out of nowhere I had an issue logging in. As soon as I punched in my password it would immediately log me out again. I later discovered that 'userinit' had gone corrupt, and since I had (and still don't) absolutely no idea how to fix it from the HP Recovery Console I just wiped it.\015\012\015\012HERE'S WHERE THE PROBLEM STARTS:\015\012Once again the PC ran smoothly for about another month thereafter, (although the entire system would freeze if I left it on too long) then one day while I was on some Forums watching some videos it just froze. I left it for about 30 seconds and came back - still frozen. "Okay, I'll just reboot" - forced shut-down and rebooted. Loaded up fine. "Okay, back to what I was doing." - (PS; I love Mozilla's 'Would you like to load previous session thing') and I went back to watching the video. Frozen again, about half-way again too. Just as I reached for the Power button - BSoD!!! "Better let it dump"... Alright, reboot. Loaded up. BSoD!!! "Okay, this is bad. Let it dump again."... Reboot. 'ntfs.sys has gone corrupt. Insert Windows installation disk and select repair'. At this point I knew NTFS is the HDD's format. "F***!!!". Reboot. Loaded Fine. "That was weird.". Took a few minutes to load this time (Whereas it normally takes like 3 minutes it took about 6). BSoD... "This is rediculous". Reboot.\015\012\015\012'SiS900 *Random stuff here* MAC-CLIENT-*more random stuff and numbers* PXE-ROM: EXITING' Then it comes up with a Blue Screen with some selection on it '()Hard Disk ()CD-ROM ()LAN ()Floppy'. Select 'Hard-disk'. It repeats the whole SiS900 thing. Blue screen doesn't appear again and pressing buttons yields System noise. Reboot.\015\012\015\012'Unable to find Hard Disk. Press H to try Hard Disk again.' - *Mash 'H'* - Nothing... Reboot.\015\012\015\012Loads Fine. "WTF!?!?!?" Okay, better backup some stuff. Backing up files - 'COPYING - 214 minutes remaining' (For like 50mb of stuff - USB 2.0 btw so it's just being slow). "This is rediculous...". After it's done - BSoD.\015\012\015\012\015\012PROBLEM:\015\012Rebooting yields one of like 4 potential problems, listed in order of likelihood.\015\012** SiS900 Jargon. Nothing more.\015\012** Unable to Find Hard Disk\015\012** Loads up to 'Windows XP Home Edition' and sits there for an indefinite amount of time.\015\012** Manages to load; has a seizure trying to open 'My Computer' or copying files. BSoD's within about 30 minutes. The BSoD's vary from time to time.\015\012\015\012\015\012TRIED SOLUTIONS:\015\012When it does load here are some thing's I've tried.\015\012** Uninstalling recently installed Programs\015\012** Virus/Spyware (AVG/Spybot) Scans\015\012** Defrag/Cache Clean (Auslogics/CCleaner)\015\012** Driver Rollbacks\015\012** System Restore Points\015\012** 'Chkdsk /r' which gets through to step 4/5 and gets to about 10% and freezes (I left it for about 2 hours and still 10%).\015\012\015\012OTHER THINGS:\015\012I personally think it's a Hardware problem. Only thing I've physically touched in the computer itself is before the problems I tried swapping the RAM (814mb atm) for two 1GB cards. The cards were wrong so I put the original ones back in. After I started having the problems I took the HDD out. It seemed fine - no damage. Made a little rattle noise (Which the warning label on the front said was completely normal). The PC itself is NOISY compared to what it used to be pre-problem. It makes weird chewing and clicking noises on occaision. The screen buzzes a little and the backlight flickers if the screen is in the wrong position. Removing the HDD and rebooting the PC still yeilded the same SiS900 thing.\015\012\015\012Anyone know whether this is Hardware or software related? Can I fix it myself or should I pay for a professional to do it? Is it worth it? (Seeing as a replacement for such an old PC is like $300 absolute max).\015\012\015\012Thanks for the help and reading so much. It is all GREATLY appreciated.\015
