Hey guys, some strange stuff going on with this machine, when it is booting off the win7 cd and after it shows the windows is loading files, just before it should go to the SETUP screen,it keeps retarting, bad hard drive maybe? The problems with this unit includes when it goes into windows and I open up any folder, that window will multiply a few times and then start flickering. It even does this on from linux disk so then I am not seeing it can be hard drive related?

A bad hdd would be my first guess as this is usually happens when the problem isn't the operating system or the media being used.

 

I would suggest run a DOS diagnostic test for this.  You create a bootable diagnostic disc and boot from it to run the test.

 

Please download SeaTool for DOS to your desktop.  This will make it easy to find the ISO file.
 
When the SeaTools for DOS website opens click on I Accept, then click on the Download button.
 
This download is a ISO image which you will need to burn to a CD or DVD in order to create a bootable disc which can be used to run the diagnostic tests.
 
To burn this ISO file to a CD or DVD use the instructions below.
 
Notice:  This applies only to Windows 7 and Windows 8, earlier versions do not have this.
 
1.  Place a blank CD or DVD in the tray of your optical drive and close the tray.
 
2.  After you have downloaded the ISO image you want to burn right click on the Start orb, then choose Windows Explorer.
 
3.  When Explorer opens click on Downloads in the left pane.  Scroll down till you find the ISO file you want and double click on it.  Click on Burn Disk Image.
 
4.  In the image below you will see Disk burner:, this should be set to the optical drive you want to use.  Click on Verify disc after burning if you want to Windows to verity the disc image after burn.  Click on burn.

5.  In the image below you can see that the green progress bar, when the image is finished burning the bar will be filled.

6.  After the image has completed being burned click on Close
 
 
Once the disc is created load it in the CD/DVD drive and restart the computer.
 
If the disc is recognized you should receive a message instructing you to press any key to continue to boot from the disc.
 
Please note:  You may need to change the boot order in the BIOS so the CD/DVD-ROM is the first device in the boot order, and the hdd is the second device.
 
Please run the short test and include the results in your next post in this topic.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

I would test the RAM with Memtest+86 as the problem occurs on a live linux disk which runs in RAM.
