Weird problem booting PC


suddenly my desktop start to show this message

so i format and installed windows 7 64bit OS once the computer restart after files are extracted

this message started to show again, so i ran a "Windows memory diagnostic" by booting up from windows installation disk -> repair

once the memory diagnostic finish, pc restarted and start to finish windows installation.

once the installation finish, i restarted the pc and again same error message appears and if use windows installation disk and run memory diagnostic pc boot normally and it happens over and over

any idea why this happen and how to prevent this?

sorry i tried to explain the problem as i can

Most often this is a hard drive problem (that's the I/O error). It can also be due to power or cable problems - or with problems on the motherboard.

Start by trying this free diagnostic procedure: Hard Drive Diagnostic Procedure

Post back with the results and we'll move on from there.
