WARNING: Before you start troubleshooting remember that you are dealing with electricity that can KILL.
Only work inside the computer case when the power has been switched off and disconnected. Never open the power source.
Some of the below steps recommend removing physical parts within the computer. While in the computer it is highly recommend that you be aware of ESD and its potential hazards
first clean your computer of dust you could use a vacuum cleaner but not with a metallic pipe it might short out if it touches something inside the computer
use a plastic pipe one
run the chkdsk utility
click start run type cmd then type chkdsk/r/f which will scan for and attempt to repair any bad sectors and automatically fix any corrupt files on your hard drive another way of running the chkdsk utility
click start control panel administration tool computer management disk management right click on your drive select properties tools click check now click start two boxes automatically fix files and
scan for and attempt recovery of bad sectors place then a tick in both boxes then select check now tart should schedule this task when restart
have no input while the chkdsk utility is in progress any input may damage your computer
check all power and data leads that attach from motherboard to your hard drive for secure dust free connections if it's a 40 pin flat ribbon type ide this will be the first to fail
if its a clicking sound you might have a dirty hard drive the clicking noise is the reader arm jumping across platters on your hard drive
hope this helps

your operating system is looking for somewhere to boot from
make sure there no disks in your drives
Test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions,IDE,SATA
the leads from your "((MOTHERBOARD TO YOUR HARD DRIVE))" make sure they have a secure connection and are not faulty or just replace them they could be faulty
make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty even the electrical extensions or just replace them they could be faulty a computer needs its connections to continue its cycle and have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error even something as small as a faulty electrical extension or fan lead can cause this problem
computers need all of the data and electrical current to travel through every working device and to have an end to be able work properly
a motherboard and a hard drive any leads between them will fail before your motherboard or your hard drive if its a flat ribbon 40 pin type IDE replace it this will be the first to fail check all electrical power input and extensions make sure they are securely seated even the cd/dvd floppy drives need to have current go through make sure these drives are working
hope this helps you
