My brother recently had someone put a HD in his desktop PC and apparently the PC was working fine on return to my brother, My brother then added some RAM (No wristband/earthed) and the PC would not start, apparently. He then took the RAM out and the PC hasn't started since.
I have just tried to start it, it says "DISK BOOT FAILURE, INSERT SYSTEM DISK AND PRESS ENTER", I put the XP Pro CD in, it waits a few seconds and comes up with the same message.
I am now attempting to copy a small file from a CD in the CD driver and am getting the message 'Error copying file or folder-Cannot copy data2: Data error (cyclic redundancy check). Please can I ask what this could be?
