Ok, so here are my specs:
512 ddr 400
450 Wat aspire PSU
80 gig WD HDD
Ok so my last computer died because of a faulty mobo. So i salvage all the parts and i use the above equipment. I wasnt able to reformat the hdd before my last comp died.
So I boot up the new comp, throw in the windows xp cd-rom and wait.
I set the boot devices as cdrom 1st and hdd second.
I sit tight, it says pres any key to boot from cd-rom. I press a key (but I dont think the keyboard is responding)
Then is says Were sorry but windows did not shut down propely, probably due to some recent hardware change (you guys know that screen?) So at this point, the keyboard IS unresponsive and i wait for the countdown till windows starts.
So it reaches zero briefly goes to some blue screen and then restarts. This loops and loops until I turn it off
Is this my HDD? Is it because I didnt reformat? What steps can I take from here. :?: :? :?:
