My computer hangs midway. Also, I think (not completely sure)I hear this mild tick inside the CPU tower.... I suppose its the inbuild Graphic card (the motherboard has this integrated graphix ATI HD 4200)

I looked up the log.. in the ATI software

And this one time... The Blue screen of death came along...

My config:
160 GB IDE Seagate
Gigabyte MA-785GUS2H AM2+
AMD 250 Athlon II 3.0 ghz
Transcend RAM 667 mhz 512 MB
VIP/Powersafe 400W PSU Gold
OS: Windows XP

If it helps, I also have this problem -

Welcome Newcomer! :) 

^ I agree with HDD and/or virus, more likely the HDD is getting old or BIOS corruption.

In addition, BIOS corruption can also cause the problem, and I would recommend clearing the CMOS.

In any regard, after you you can get into Windows I would strongly recommend backing-up your data, then 1 or 2:
1. FULL Reformat HDD & Reinstall XP fresh
Microsoft official XP SP3 ISO -
2. Replace HDD {if multiple bad sectors are found}

Good Luck!

BTW - is the same issue.

^ Fixed for now, the HDD is really old - if any of the data is important I'd back it up ASAP. The IDE HDD is clearly past it's "safe" days.
