Hi. That problem means can't detect your hardisk device. Try to open your CPU then check up data cable and power cable of hardisk for loose wiring ,burn or defective cable and fix or change it. then try to boot again.
Try this for starters. Shut down the computer like you normally do. Next turn it on and while its booting up press the F8 key(keep tapping it). You should get a menu and on that menu, one of the choices is Safe mode. Select it and press enter. This will boot your computer into a Diagnostic mode where you can troubleshoot hardware software and windows problem in general. If you successfully get into safe mode answer yes to the question it asks and then goto your Device manager..you can get there by rightclicking the mycomputer icon and select properties from the drop down menu then select the Hardware tab on top.and click DEVICE MANAGER. In this screen look for your display adapter..higlight your graphics adapter and right click...then select uninstall...now reboot your computer normally this time dont press the f8 key..gointo WIndows normally. This should reinstall your graphics card and possibly fix the problem.
Boot the computer in safe mode. While booting press the F8 key and on the Windows Advance boot screen, select safe mode and press enter. Once you are on the logon screen, select Administrator account. Click on Start and rightl click on My computer, then click properties Go to hardware tab and click on Device manager. In the device manager look for Display adapter, Click on the + sign, right click on the listed devices and uninstall. Now you should be able to boot the computer in normal mode.
Please let me know if you need any further assistance.

It sounds like the computer is trying to use a resolution that the monitor cannot handle. Boot into safe mode by pressing the f8 key during boot up and select safe mode. Once booted, right click on the desktop and select properties. In settings lower the resolution by moving the bar to the left and reboot.
I would move it all the way down, you can then move it up a step at a time once you are in normal mode again.
There is need to restart the system in safe mode.
1- When you turn on the system then press F8 for boot system in SAFE mode.
2- select 1152 by 864 pixels in the settings tab of display properties.
3- Restart the system again but not use F8 key while reboot the system.
A possibility is that the VIDEO selections you have made are too
acute for the screen and Windows cannot continue (nor can it tell you
it can't) so press F8 key while booting, select 'Last known Good' and
see if that flies. Last known good is the settings for your PC that
worked last time you booted. If that does the same thing, then reboot
using F8 again and select 'Safe mode'
This will force WIN to use
only known good settings, and then you can fix the problem by START,
RUN and typing 'compmgmt.msc', choosing 'Devices', clicking the little
+ by Display Adapters, highlighting yours and hitting the DEL key. This
will remove it and its settings from the Registry (but not the HD) and
force Windows to reinstall and reconfigure it
1. Restart the computer. 2. When the computer begins to reboot, press the F8 key repeatedly in one second intervals until the "Windows Advanced Options" appears. 3. Select "Enable VGA Mode" and press ENTER. 4. Select your operating system from the list and press ENTER 5. Follow your normal log on procedure. 6. RIGHT CLICK with mouse anywhere on your desktop. 7. Select PROPERTIES. 8. Select SETTINGS then select ADVANCED. 9. Select ADAPTER then select LIST ALL MODES. 10. Refer to your monitor user's manual or Quick Start Guide for the recommended resolution or mode for your monitor. 11. Select OK then APPLY then OK. 12. Depending on your computer setting, you may need to re-start the computer for the changes above to take effect.
Sounds like your video adapter settings have been wedged. If you are running Windows XP Service Pack 2, you can use the following steps.
1) Boot the laptop into safe mode. Boot into safe mode with networking support if possible. This can be done by tapping the F8 key as the computer first turns on.
2) Once you are at the Desktop, right click on My Computer and select Manage.
3) In the window that appears, select Device Manager from the menu on the left.
4) Find Display Adapters on the right and click the plus sign. This will list the video adapter that you have.
NOTE: WRITE this down EXACTLY. You may need to go and get drivers for this. Seeing this is an older model, I doubt you'll need it, but better to be safe then sorry.
5) Go to your manufacturers support web site and download these drivers. You may not need them, but better to be safe then sorry.
NOTE: Skip step 5 if you did not boot with network support or cannot get to the Internet. This can be done from normal mode.
6) Right click on the display adpater and choose un-install. Hit OK on the window that appears and reboot the machine when the process is done.
7) The machine will take longer than usual to boot, as Windows XP is re-discovering the video adapter and resetting everything to the defaults. When it is done booting, the screen may look weird since the settings are now the defaults. You can the set them to what you want by right clicking on the desktop and selecting properties. Then go to the settings tab.
8) IF it did not re-discover the video adapter (this can be confirmed through the device manager), then go ahead and install the drivers. Windows Update will most likely also have the drivers.
