When I start my PC,monitor shows long time waiting black screen with blinking short line which is same in DOS.I counted Num,Caps & Scroll locks bulbs are blinking more than 15 times with above processing. This problem starts few days ago.

How can I solve this problem? I really appreciate your advice.

Motherboard Intel 945GL.
OS-Windows 7
2GB Ram
On board VGA

I installed Bitdefender week ago.

The first thing to try would be to uninstall BitDefender and see if that cures the problem.

Have you tried system restore to a time before this happened, or do you have a back up?

Try a system file scan.
Open Cmd Prompt "Run as Administrator" then at the prompt type sfc /scannow and hit Enter.
That will check all your system files and replace any corrupted or missing.

Andsome - I tried system restore it didn't work out.

ranprawn - I did what u said. It didn't find any integrity violation.

so what can i do for next? Is this hardware failure?

I would try a "Start Up Repair Windows 7"
