    Sounds like a hardware problem. Did the machine ever work right?

    It sounds like bad hardware or it was not put together right. Is it something that was built by an individual?

    What procedure are you using to install the OS, are you booting from the CD or DVD? Is your keyboard a wireless keyboard? If it is try a USB keyboard.

    It does sound like a hardware problem. What type of hard drive do you have and how old is it?
    Why do you want to reinstall Windows?
    Did you boot the PC from your Windows DVD or launch the install from Windows?

    thnx for ur reply.I was little bit tensed to hear that the problem would be hardware.But its ok now. My machine isn't old yet. I bought it within one year so its not hardware.At this moment in my country the hard drive is in high price bcoz of thai flood. So I borrowed it from one from my close one.Its Hitachi brand and its almost 3 years old but though its working well .

    When I bought my pc from a company they also install seven @ the very first time till now but I like reinstall bcoz its became heavy. And I like to install win XP for gaming my old games ....I tried to install win 7 from DVD by booting...

    Even new hardware can fail by the way. I've had stuff that was DOA right out of the box. I think I would want to test that 3 year old used hard drive. If you go to the hard drive manufacturers web site you should be able to find the utilities to do it. They are free. If the hard drive checks out OK then I would probably run memtest or something similar on the RAM. At the very least I would reseat all my RAM modules and any add-in cards like video. Double check your power and data cables too, to make sure they are correctly fastened at both ends.

    Just to clarify because I'm confused?
    In one post you said > "my machine is a clone..I made it individual hardware".
    Then later on you said > "I bought my pc from a company" and " they also install seven"
    Then you said > " hard drive is in high price bcoz of thai flood. So I borrowed it from one from my close one."

    How many hard drives are in it?
    Did you buy this PC as new or used?
    Have you tested the hard drive for errors?
    Have you ever installed an operating system before?
    Do you know how to access the motherboard BIOS menu and have you done so on this PC?

I bought everything except hard drive because of high price. One of the shop man had installed windows seven in my pc. All parts of this machine in new except hard drive.
