Could be your hard drive is going or gone bad.
You'll need some type of OS disk anyway to restore it, contact your PC vendor for a restore disk. There will probably be a small charge for it.

Or you can install Linux :-)

If the computer didn't come with restore discs, it probably has a restore partition. You can use that partition to restore the computer. Another option, is to remove the hard drive, and slave it into another PC, then run a malware scan on it. This issue is usually due to an OS corruption, or malware.

Malware does this a lot, ^^. This happened twice to me in one week the only way we fixed it was with the restore CD and repaired windows :\ Its a really aggravating issue i don't know what i would have done without the disk. The hard drive could also be on its way out, start up your computer and listen closely for the hard drive, if you hear a small screeching noise, then your HD is bye byess, :\
