I can't start up my computer at all. I got a new SATA 500gb HD and installed it, BIOS detects it. I am trying to install windows XP on it but it keeps freezing when its loading everything, although sometimes i can get to where you press S to load the sata drivers from the floppy, cant get much further without it freezing, i do have the floppy with the drivers) The whole reason to get a new hard drive was to stop the freezing, but as you can see, it failed. I don't know what to do anymore.
I currenty have a
Compaq Presario SR2020NX ~2.2GHz
about 1.4Gb of ram
Was running windows xp
I have tried taking out each stick of ram at a time to see if that made a difference, but no. My computer even freezes if its just sitting on BIOS. When the freezes occur, the graphics on the screen garble, it just mixes up whatever was on the screen. Please help!
P.S: another reason besides the freezing that i formatted is because i had the axel.dav virus :P
