There is no problem on the hard disk.. It's either the memory or the motherboard is having a fault. Try cleaning the memory contact point with a pencil eraser and try again....
Check also the voltage of the battery cell on your motherboard it should read higher than 2.8V DC, replace it if below 2.8.

Hoping a Fixya result on my suggestion... Anyway, post me back if nothing happens, we will fix it...

How to format for windows xp


You have to format a hard drive with a third party disk unless its a usb data drive
Restart your computer
During the boot process you will see on the screen to press a certain key to enter setup usually the Delete or the F2 key but will differ depending on your computer and Bios.
Press and hold that key during the boot up process to enter BIOS then using the arrow keys navigate to advanced bios features press enter change your first boot device to cd press escape then press f10 to save to cmos restart
this will erase you operating system you will have to have an operating system disk to load it onto you hard drive or create a partition to load another operating system.
Note: After you have loaded the operating system you should go back and change the first boot device to failsafe or optimised defaults after windows has loaded
If you are putting windows XP on your computer your computer will automatically restart it might restart 2 times one to finish the installation
the next will be because the operating system is loaded and will boot from your cd\dvd.

Hard Disk Drive Not Detected


Does your hard drive get detected in the BIOS? If yes then you can recover data by plugging that hard drive as secondary and running a recovery application like Recover My Files.
