Yes, had exactly the same problem earlier this week, the bios chip may be faulty, as you know all other components work, so it's down to the motherboard and a replacement is required

I have just in fact a few days ago came across a similar issue. As to whether or not your hdd needs to be replaced is uncertain. What I can tell you is it seems as though the MBR or master boot record has become corrupt or one of the reader arms inside the hdd has failed.
Refering to the corrupted theory, may be simply fixed by booting off of a win xp cd and reformatting your drive and reinstalling windows after the format.
In my case even booting off of a xp cd did not resolve the issue, every time anything would attempt to read from the hdd the computer would reboot. I suspected hdd failure at first, but this was not the case. It turns out it was a virus that infected the ntfs.sys and the MBR and put a binary code into those 2 files to reboot the machine.
Luckily at work (IT industry) I have a norton ghost server and was successfull at reimageing the hdd, doing so erases the MBR and everything else for that matter and rewrites it. However in doing so I lost all data that was on the hdd to begin with.
If you are not very tech savvy I would probably recommend hdd replacement however since you do have a HP which was prebuilt with xp, you don't have a xp install cd and thus unable to reload windows. I recommend finding a friend that has the xp install cd or you will have to go to the store and buy XP.

I looked up your motherboard and found some posts that suggest that the onboard VGA may be the problem you're having with Vista - using an another video card will probably allow you to install and operate Vista on your machine.

SOURCE: A7V400-MX will not boot
In such cases its practical to change the SMPS with a working power supply of the same rating and then trying it out. If with the new power supply it works fine then cange your SMPS. Also make sure that all cables are snug tight and generally ree from dust. The same applies to your RAM too................sodeep
