If it is just clean your bootable windows cd with hand caurchief.
Then check if it not boot with disk then your cd disk of windows is not bootable or faulty.
Please let me know.

hello, sounds like memory issue, I would say if you have more than one stick of memory in it remove one at a time and try it again.
also while you are at it reset BIOS by remove battery from motherboard and/or switching jumper setting.
hope it helps.

Thank you for your query
From the error message that you are seeing you are having a issue with one or both of your IDE devices. These devices are your Hard drive or/and your CD/DVD drive
I would not recommned that you tackle it yourself if you have no PC engineering experience
Please book into a reputabe firm for further diagnosis, it may be that you may need to discoonect the IDE drive from the devices and give it a clean or alternativley one of the devices may be faulty
If this has been useful please leave positive feedback/vote/testimonial as
this will help me greatly - Thank you again
