    Hiya hcastro.

    That sounds like a hardware failure of some sort, very possibly the hard drive. Check to see if the drive is fitted snugly onto the pins by taking it out and reseating it and while you`re there, pop the RAM out and reseat that too for good measure. If you`ve got the chance, slave the drive to a known good computer or perhaps take it to your local computer shop and I`d hope they`ll be more than happy to check it for you.

    Regards
    Jenny
