Hi CosmicJest, As you have tried all the HDD tests which have resulted in negative results maybe it's time to reinstall the OS

Are there any USB devices plugged into your system? if there are, please unplug them and try booting your computer again

Only USB device is my mouse.

Reinstall the OS? Oh man. :-( What good would that possibly do?

redfang, I got the same error as with previous DOS commands (not recognized as an internal or external command, operable command, or batch file).

Sandeep, I assumed replies to my posts would use the information contained in the post (i.e., the system I am asking for help with). I did, however, comply with your request that I update my specs, which now indicate that I have multiple devices, so there will be no future confusion.

hmmm, Unfortunately, I see no better way to go on with this other than to clean reinstall your system, you may, of course, try a repair install of windows though.
but, before you do that, did i have you do SFC /scannow from the command prompt? and after that, try a system restore from the options menu.
if, however, you decide to reinstall, I'll give you instructions to backup important files, you cannot backup programs already installed, you must reinstall them

as for you system specs, read HERE and update them correctly.

Hi CosmicJest,

I believe you are running these commands while booting with the CD or USB drive and starting the command prompt like this:

Command Prompt at Startup

If that is the case then you should check the same disk/USB key on a different system to confirm there is no issue with the disk/drive.

As a last resort you should try clean installing the windows as suggested by others as well. Keep us posted with the results so we can advise you further.
