When I turn on my Pc it gets to the Windows Logo screen it hangs,if I reset and try safemode or any other mode the same thing happens it hangs before it initializes the keyboard or the command line. I installed a new Hard drive tried to reinstall XP but the same thing happend. I presume it's a hadware problem but where do I start?
you will have to install windows on the drive to be able to access it.
Place your windows cd in the cd drive, and boot into the bios, in the advanced bios options, select the cd-rom as the first boot device, Save and exit, after booting to cd, this will give you your partition/format and setup options.
