According to the maintenance guide. If you are using an external drive try to reseat it. If is from the hard drive you can try to use the CD or diskette to boot. If not the hard drive or system board need replacement. Try to get a boot disk of windows (installation cd, not upgrade but the full windows) and try booting the cd by pressing the space bar repeatedly. Good luck
