im trying to insall a new SATA HDD into my tower. I have a new XP pro OS for it, but when i installed the HDD or the old one i get a blank screen before BIOS no beeps no display errors. Ive tried using the video card i had in it before and ive tried hooking it straight to the mobo and still starts up blank anyone know if the drivers are causing this? Also here are the tower specs. Thanks in advance.
