Hello guys,

  1. Hello mishonacro;

    Sounds like a hard disk problem.
    Do you have any bootable CDs/DVDs you use to get the machine running?

    Burn your own bootable CD with utility programs to test your hard drive and other good RescueCD tools.

  4. Can you get in on Safe Mode?

    Try running a CHKDSK for Hard Drive errors?

    CHKDSK runs but console window disappears quickly after third stage(checking security ...) I can't read what's written there.
