This begets the question - "Why did you delete the 2 partitions?"
I have 2 suspicions:
- that the Ubuntu stuff had something to do with how Windows boots - and deleting the partition(s) has confused the Windows boot manager.
- or, that the hard drive is dying (this, IMO, is the most likely reason).
For starters, try these free bootable diagnostics: http://www.carrona.org/initdiag.html
In some cases the hard drive diagnostics/bootable utilities may have problems running with a defective hard drive.
The solution there is to slave the hard drive to another computer and run the in-Windows diagnostics on it there (if it doesn't work with the other computer, then it's usually safe to say that there's a problem with the hard drive - so you'd have to replace it).
