Hi,

Try to check your hard drive. Use a utility tool specially made for the manufacturer of your hard drive. Ex. Seagate Hard Drive = Seatools
Western Digital = Data Lifeguard.

Check for any errors or bad sectors on the hard drive

Boot


You may try disabling booting from cd/floppy, but if there isn't a boot record findable on the hard drive you may have to create a boot rescue disc or may even have to reinstall your operating system.
