Question about Computers & Internet
You may have a bad hard drive. Hard drives tend to fault after three years of use. I would recommend replacing the hard drive, and installing windows 7 if you want to continue using this hardware, or better yet, just invest into a new desktop PC.

Sounds like you have a defective peripheral. Disconnect everything except the hard drive, memory, and monitor and see if it boots. If it does then one of the disconnected items is at fault. If you have multiple memory sticks, just go with one at a time and see what happens.
Unless reinstall disk is defective it should work unless there is a hardware issue.

Guess what? it's the CPU. Changed it with a working PC same type and unit boots up fine. Guess we learn about new problems everyday.
I think it's high time these units start telling you what component or section of the computer is faulty...too many things to diagnose.

Do you have a lot of accessories plugged in? They may have overloaded the power supply and if this is the case you will need to buy new power supplies. If this is not the problem, check to make sure that the computers have plenty of ventilation in the back. If they don't, they may have overheated and melted quite a few different components.
