The hard drive may be marginal and sometimes it fails to start in the allotted time the BIOS gives. You could check the BIOS any see if there is an option to increase the time the BIOS waits for the hard drive to spin-up. This might help. It could be the system is aging and components are becoming marginal in their functioning.

Good Luck with this tough problem

My system is only 2 years old. I think this could be a deadly virus issue which is affecting my bios configuration. I have to clean my bios flash and then reinstall it. Is there any way clean the flash memory.

When you update the BIOS you rewrite the entire BIOS memory. No "cleaning" needed. First you should swap out the memory cards. Run the PC on one card to see if you can identify bad memory.

Please be aware that a mistake in BIOS updating may result in a totally DEAD computer. Then your only option is to replace the BIOS chip with a new correctly programmed BIOS.

Good Luck
