Try booting from a windows cd and see what messages you get

not sure, if there is one it would be corrupted

can anything else cause this?

If no op system then you should get error message "No opsystem inset a bootable diskette" or simular

If HDD corrup the allsorts of other mesges or it could reboot over and over.

Any error messages?
