    HELP!!

    Discussion started by elmeromero - Aug 11, 2004

    I'm trying to install windows XP on a computer and after I formatted the harddrive and it restarted the computer to continue intallation. It doesnt start at all. The monitor gets a signal for like 10 seconds and it just turns off.

    What i was thinking is that something maynot be compatible. the harddrive is new. but it worked before i formatted it..
    Any toughts on this?

    Is the Windows XP bootdisc in the drive before you try starting up the computer?

    Probably a physical problem with the hard drive.

    can you get the BIOS screen?

    try using a drive imaging program and make a copy of a hard drive that boots, then copy it to the hard drive that doesn't.
