Determine how much space you need.
The first step in backing up your hard drive is to figure out how much space you will need to back up all of your files.
You can do this in a couple of ways.
Find out how large the hard drive is on your computer first to see if you can back up the whole thing. Click on "My Computer," right-click the "C" drive and select "Properties."
This shows the approximate size of your hard drive, how much space is actually taken, plus the space used by your operating system.
If your hard drive size is manageable (the space actually taken), back up the whole thing.
Your second option is to create a file called "Backup" and copy all of your important files into it.
Right-click on the folder once everything is copied over and choose "Properties" to find out the size of the folder.
This is how much space you will need to back up your important files only.
Choose a backup method. Choose either an external hard drive, data disks (CDs, for example) or use an online backup service.
There are advantages and disadvantages to all.
An external drive is convenient because you can plug it into other computers and immediately transfer or copy files without needing the Internet or having to worry at all about security.
However you have to carry the drive with you and always face the remote possibility that both your computer and the hard drive would break.
Data disks provide the same advantages and disadvantages as external hard drives: portability, but the possibility of theft or breakage.
You can also use an online backup service.
These services range in price depending on the amount of storage.
The advantage of an online service is that you can access your files from anywhere there is Internet, and it is generally cheaper, especially for small amounts of service.
Also, you don't need to carry or store another piece of equipment.
The disadvantage is your backup is stored on the service's external server, so security is a potential issue.
Back up your files. Once you have chosen your method of backup, do not forget the most important step: back up your files.
For external media, go into "My Computer" and double-click the "C" drive to open it.
Select all the files if backing up your entire hard drive, or select your "Backup" folder if just backing up your important files.
Holding your "CTRL" key, drag your selected files to your back up source, either your external hard drive or data disk drive.
Release your mouse button and "CTRL" key and allow the files to be copied onto your backup media.

Test your PSU or replace it if your power supply units fan is not working your PSU is faulty
One bad lead can cause a computer to continue on a cycle or to shutdown or fail to detect/ boot up a computer hard drive
Test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions,IDE,SATA
the leads from your ((motherboard to your hard drive)) make sure they have a secure connection and are not faulty or just replace them there probably old and 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 are probably old and faulty a computer needs its connections to have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error
hope this helps
