OPERATING SYSTEM CANNOT LOAD, PLS HELP!

by Benny Jay / August 19, 2007 4:23 AM PDT

Hi, I have this desktop pc i built last January. the specification is as follows: mercury motherboard PVM4 V3.0, 40gig hdd,dvd rom,and floppy,with window xp os. Its been running since until last two weeks. when i put it on , it refused to load all other icons on the desktop except two word documents icons. I rebooted it several times with same result. I guessed the os might have been corrupted, so i slaved the hard drive with another pc and copied all my documents and reformatted it. I tried to re-installed a new OS ie window XP, it copied all the files quite right but the installation terminated halfway. That is , the OS refused to load. I scanned the hard drive for error but there was non. I tried another hdd,rom, power pack, ram, all but with the same result. My pc is down and am helpless. pls help!
