Also tried Windows Memory Diagnostic and once that had completed PC failed to start again.

Going to try the tutorial now... I'll report back when I'm done
With Partition Wizard (software explained in tutorial) tou can test the disk surface. How to perform partition surface test with partition manager? partition surface test help.

I think your disk is dying and Partition Wizard will test if I'm right. Did you backup important files already? Do it!

Yeah I tried that in command prompt, it said there were no problems.

I couldn't do the troubleshoot tutorial, no discs were burning properly, they won't even burn an ISO and I can't use a USB.

I'll try the partition wizard now, I think it's the hardware issue too.

Before I do... If I reset to factory settings would that work? or is there a risk of it not starting up again?

Thanks

Did you backup important files already? ... no answer yet. I don't care but most likely your harddrive is dying

chkdsk/r commands reported disk errors? ... no answer yet.

Why do a factory restore? First prove it is NOT a hardware problem!

No disk errors.=>so chkdsk/r is has already finished and reported no disk errors? These procedures take hours to complete! How come this has finished so fast!?

partition wizard: burn on another pc. Boot from burned dvd

If you're so sure ... replace the faulty device.

After "restore to factory settings" you loose anything anyway. All your documents are gone now! Unless... the procedure fails before it started the destructive restore.

I thought it was chkdsk/f. chkdsk/r is in process.

I havent done factory restore yet anyway... but replacing the hard drive would do the same anyway... i'd still lose all my files and have to get a windows 7 disc
