i have a computer,which will not boot,so i replaced the hard drive,same problem it says "boot failure" even after going in,in safe mode to do xp setup,it get to one screen saying at the top "windows setup" at the bottom of the screen it says "setup is loading files (windows executive)..." thats it ,it sticks there,anybody know what might be wrong?
make sure no usb cables are plugged in and try booting again. If usb is not the problem you will have to remove all cables from accessories and see if it attempts to boot. This sort of fault often comes down to a faulty memory strip. If more than 1 remove all the others and try the one strip in each memory slot. If no joy try a different strip.
