    With the hard drive click and reboot you could have a problem with the hard drive. When you get to the options screen can you boot up if you choose safe mode or last know good configuration?

    Learn How To Diagnose Power Supply Problems
    by: Otis F Cooper
    http://www.worldwide-training.com/articles/article23.htm
    The Power Supply convert's your regular household current into low DC voltage used by the computer. When this component fails,there is simply no activity going on wih your computer. Remember to do the easy troubleshooting first. Inspect the Power Supply for any damage. Double-Check all connections.

    Learning how to check your power supply and how to replace it when needed can be a life saver if you're a computer buff or in business with the trusted PC. Don't take for granted the simple pleasure of turning on your PC and everything works just fine.

    We turned on one of our computers recently and in about one hour, it just re-booted itself. And it continued doing so about 10 times a day until we found out the power supply was the culprit. Things to look for when your power supply is going bad or just dies on you are the following.

    NO POWER TO THE COMPUTER

    Here you must first check the wall outlet for power by connecting another device such as a radio or lamp to be sure power is present. If the computer is connected through a surge protector,check it as well.

    If the wall out has power,check the power cable going to the PC to see if AC voltage is making its way to the system unit.Do this with the use of a multimeter.

    If there is power,you will have to open the PC and check for power from the power supply to the motherboard.

    When using a multimeter to check voltage,be sure you have a good ground for the black lead of the multimeter.

    RE-BOOTING PROBLEMS

    One main problem you may face with an ailing Power Supply is that it may re-boot the computer without any warning. All information is lost and it seems as though this happens at the worst possible time.

    Booting errors when the computer first start's up is another indicator of this component going on the blink.

    POWER DISTRIBUTION PROBLEMS

    When the power supply begins to fail, you may receive power at one device and not another. For example, the Hard Drive may receive power but the CDROM Drive has nothing at all.

    Another headache with would cause re-booting is the intermittent power going to the drives or the motherboard itself.Follow the steps below to check your power supply should you experience some of the above problems

    OK HERE HIS RELY
    Hello Sir,

    Yes,the power supply is famous for this.It will
    stop working all at once,re boot without warning,
    as you said,and they will allow some components
    to work while others won't.

    You can check it with a multimeter but the results
    will not be conclusive




    BEGIN TO THINK MY REBOOT PROBLEM ANY TIME IT WHAT TO, AND MY PROGLEM BOOTING UP WINDOW AT STARTUP ARE POWER RELATED
