    hi, friend..

    >> This is most common problem with desktop.

    >> here is your solution:

    > this is mostly done by virus attack.

    >> you need to boot scan your system with good anti virus.

    >> and it may also cause problem if your RAM is not enough for your system.

    >> but as you told before your system is good so this is finally problem of your virus.

    >> just check your you have to format your system .

    Hi Friend,

    The Problem is related to the Hard Disk.

    >> Hard Disk of your HP Desktop is not working Well.

    >> It might be Internal Read-Write Head.

    >> The Main element of Hard disk.

    >> So check that hard disk is working in other System.

    >> Only you need to check is Hard Disk, Because System Hangs when you try to open any Drive.

    >> Replace Hard disk if possible.

    I hope you will understand.

    All the Best
