You have not plugged any external devices, USB devices and CD in to the computer. RIght?
No memory card.
NO USB drives,
no. only used for internet
If so, the issue is with the hard drive.
But it would be unfair to you and unprofessional of me were I to provide you with anything less than truthful and honest information.
I would suggest you try opening the computer case, reseating the hard drive and RAM sticks.
It may resolve the issue.
