Problem with IBM Netvista (1.00 GHz, 128 MB of RAM)

I'm having a problem with my computer. I have Microsoft Windows XP Home
Edition and when I turn on the computer it starts to load Windows then
clicks off and I get the message: We apologize for the inconvenience
but windows did not start successfully. The option "start windows
normally" is highlighted. After a few seconds it will start to load
again...sometimes successfully but sometimes the screen will freeze and
I have to shut the computer off and try again.

There is an error in my event viewer that says Event 615 failure which
is listed as "bad index timing error; drive error". I have no idea what
this means and would appreciate if someone could help me out. I did
take my machine to a computer tech and he replaced the hard drive
(saying it was a hard drive error) and the motherboard but the machine
is doing exactly the same thing. Any suggestions?
