the leads from your MOTHERBOARD TO YOUR HARD DRIVE make sure they have a secure dust free connections 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
even something as small as a faulty power lead or fan lead can cause you problems
computers need all of the data and power to travel through every working device and to have an end to be able work properly
make sure ram modules and cmos batteries have dust free secure seatings and cmos battery has charge some motherboards cmos batteries are soldered in
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 power an data leads make sure they have dust free secure connections
cd/dvd floppy drives need to have current go through make sure these drives are working
check you CPU make sure its securely seated and has thermal grease
