Hey, i posted days ago cause i kept on getting this random cut outs on my pc, now i thought it was down to software but i guess its not.....my pc is now greatly cleaned by some help on here and im still encounting this issue.

When it cuts out, i can be either burning a dvd or trying to, surfing the web and it will jus cut and go right to a grey screen with not displayed, in order to restart it i press it manually and it displays a message BOOT DISK FAILURE, Put in system cd and press enter! but it will not restart at all until ive turned it off completly and turned it back on again. Im lost and i cannot burn a dvd or anything with out it cutting it, it seems to happen alot if im running a type of software.

any help is good help, thanks

Boot into recovery console . At the prompt type :

attrib -r -s -h c:\boot.ini
del c:\boot.ini
bootcfg /rebuild
-at the first prompt press "y" enter
-at the second prompt type what you want to name your windows installation (anything you want)
-at the third prompt type /fastdetect
fixboot
-at the prompt press y
fixmbr
