  11. Try just powering it on, without starting the format/install process.

    Just let it sit and see if the issue is with the power, or the install process.

    when i keep on for 10 minutes it shutdown automatically.
  14. Boot off the XP disc. Instead of trying to install windows, use the R option to enter the repair console. The default admin password is blank, so just hit enter when prompted.

    At the command line type: chkdsk /r

    That will scan your hard drive for errors and try to repair them.

    Ok. You still want to try the chkdsk in the repair console.
