doe sit actualy boot up ok after? this normaly happens for 1 of 2 reasons.. either it is trying to detect a harddrive that isnt there or is faulty else you may have a USB device which is stopping the computer from POST. remove all periferals and try again and see if thatg works, if windows doesnt boot then try setting BIOS to defaults

If you have a SATA drive the cables come loose in Advents easily and alot of these drives go faulty in advents!!

i bet its a T series advent too! i work at PCserviceCall support for dixons currys and PCworld and get alot of advents thru!
