    Check all of your connections to ensure that everything is seated properly. If you have multiple sticks of RAM remove them all and try rebooting the system with one stick a time replacing each stick each time you reboot. If you are still having issues, and assuming you are using XP, then try inserting your XP disk and running a repair. Other than that, you can always slave that drive to a working computer and extract all of your data first and then reformatting your drive and installing a fresh install of windows.

    good luck!
