Sounds like the power supply is failing. The power supplies have protection circuitry in them so that when there is excess current draw, the output voltage is 'clamped' (reduced to a lower level) so that the power supply won't burn up. If you are consistently experiencing this, that's a sign. If you added another drive, a new video card or upgraded the processor a little while ago, the power supply might not quite be up to the task. Even with nothing new added, a lot of power supplies don't like to be operated at much over 60@ of their 'rated' capacity, and their ratings are significantly lowered at any little temperature rise.

Hello here is the msi homepage:

I think your harddrive is dead, and must be renewed.
The fault could also be the mainboard itselves.

A computer repair shop, can help you with that.

Good luck

Hello, you usually press 'delete' or maybe the tab key on power-up. Try and read the message that will flash up on the screen, usually momentarily, just before it starts to boot. Instead of powering down then back on, press your 'restart' button then you might see the messages that you may have missed if your monitor was still warming up. Regards, nicam49

ok fair enough.... boot the computer and watch the screen.... you need to watch for the key to enter setup.... delete key seems to be the most popular but i've had computers use f1 and f2, f11 and f12.... if it goes to fast hit pause as it gets to the point where it tells you the key to hit to enter setup.... after you are in change the boot sequence to boot to cdrom..... hit f10 and save the changes... reboot to the cd and continue with your install
