My understanding is that when you power on your PC, the POST is succesful, but then the system hangs.? If i am correct. There are several reasons this may happen.
1) Boot record corrupt
S) Reformat the harddrive and re-install operating system / replace hard drive
2) General Hard drive failure but boot record instact
S) Replace Hard drive
3) Operating system inoperative
S) Re-install operating system
Most pre-built systems come with recovery disks, you may try this as a solution if available.
When replacing a defective hard drive, or partialy inoperable hard drive, a good policy is to change the drive to slave, and install the new drive as master, this way any data you may be able to recover, can be done after the new hard drive is installed, and an operating system is installed on the new drive.
(POST = Power On Self Test)
