    After i did a fresh format few months ago, the computer started playing funny. It started to turn itself on an off rearly and then more offen until it would turn itself off and on again seconds after i will turn it on. Then it started to give me a chance to use 1 or 2 IE pages but if i used more or any other app it would do it.

    I checked the temp on BIOS health check and all the funs are working fine.
    Recently it has started to freeze on boot screen, it will stop there and go no further.

    I tried to format but it will freeze at a certain stage, so it wont let me.
    Pleaze help me i cannot live without my pc and all my hard work i have on the hard drive and i cannot afford another pc.

    Thanx guys!

    I would strongly recomend copying any important info you have on that drive onto CD's or another HDD if you have one.

    It sounds very similar to a problem I had where my machine would lock up and freeze at random points, I also noticed a strange electronic bleep-bloop noise coming from inside my machine, a month or two later all of sudden my machine wouldnt boot, until I removed my second HDD then it booted fine, but my second HDD was bust completely.

    So to me it sounds like your HDD may be on it's way out.

    and . . BACK UP YOUR DATA!

    all drives fail sometime . . some sooner . . some later . . but they all fail . .

    Data not backed up is data waiting to be lost.

    The thing is, i can not go anyfurther than boot screen, it freezes there. windows dont load. I cant format ither.

    i bought a new HDD and when i started formating it i was freezing on different points until after lots of tryes windows installed there but i dont need the new HDD, i need my old HDD with all my data.

    Any ideas?
