When you say you swapped HDD's do you mean you to the HDD from the problem computer and put it in a different one and it worked or did you take a HDD from a working comupter and put it in problem computer and it worked????

Did you install any new software just before problem started??

If you did a repair install & still have the same problem it sounds as if it is a hardware problem.

Disconnect all hardware devices, unplug all PCI cards, leave only the Monitor, Keyboard, & Mouse plugged in and try to boot up.

i swap the harddisk....the problematic ones still has the problem but the new ones boots up perfectly on the old ones motherboard.......

The system was isolated for 2 weeks......was working fine previously...perfectly........

Hardware problem...unlikely...Bios hardware check no problem...did a third party full scan also no problem.

This issues happen on a notebook.......so other peripherials issues are isolated cause i swap harddisk rem?

This is a challenging troubleshooting problem and i have been working on it for 2 full days.......

This one has got me stumped. If a repair install didn't do the trick then it would seem that it is the HDD.
I will continue to search for a solution.

If you are sure the hard drive in question is healthy and a repair install didn't work, then you need to wipe the disk, reformat and do a new full installation.
