✔ Best Answer
Possibilities: faulty ram module, hard drive is failing or something has corrupted the boot record files. When you first turn on the computer tap F8 key a few times, should bring up an advanced start up menu, select safe mode with networking and see if it will load windows. If not turn off the computer and turn on again tapping the F8 key to get back to advanced startup options. Select "repair computer" that will take you to a menu with utilites for repair, select "memory diagnostics tool" and follow instructions to test the memory. If the memory diagnostic goes ok, then you need to download "seatools for Dos" from seagate, and make the bootable cd. Insert the cd into the computer and boot to the cd on startup. Seatool will load and bring up a list of hard drives. Select your hard drive with windows on it (if you have more than 1) and do the basic generic test, if it passes then do the long generic test (can take awhile). If it passes the long and short test then you know it is not likely faulty hardware and likely corrupted boot files. From off go back F8, then select "repair computer" and this time select "start up repair", let it work and see if that resolves the issue, if not post back.
