hi picard15,

the reason of this problem can be the corrupted hard drive partitions......one of my friend got this problem few weeks ago......i tried to completely format the hard drives even......but that didn't work out........only one thing which could be done to delete all the current partiotions and recreate them and then install ur OS again!!

another reaosn can be a VIRUS.......if u can start the computer....then u should go for the online virus scan at mcAfee or Symentic site......!!

http://us.mcafee.com/root/mfs/default.asp 

and if ur computer just failed to start then u have to create Rescue Disk form any other computer having an AntiVirus Software.....and then u can boot the system from these diskettes......then can have a scan for virus!!
BUT BE CAREFULL.....coz if any of the system file is infected with virus......virus scan will remove it immedialtely......and so u will unable to start ur system.....and hence u have to install the OS again.......so just be carefull that u have updated all ur data before doing a virus scan in DOS!!

and the third reasos can be a worng UDMA cable....see the follwing Microsoft thread.

http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;297185&Product=winxp

So, try these solutions....but first just check for the UDMA cable.......2nd check for the virus.......and if both don't work then u should go for the Deletion and Recreating the Partiotions as the last cure......!!

Hope this much help is enough for now.....if u want more help.......feel easy....:)
Best Of Luck!!
